In HTML5, the <embed> element defines a container for an external application or interactive content (a plug-in). In this example, we will use it to display a Flash movie:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<embed src="stars.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="500" height="350" />

</body>
</html>
And the output will be:
 

 
The <embed> tag is supported in Internet Explorer , Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari.
 
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" – specifies the MIME type of the embedded content For more informations, please visit http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/the-embed-element.html#the-embed-element.
