Inserting Flash video in Dreamweaver

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
This is my first time using Dreamweaver and it's been a blast but I get to the point of needing to insert a Flash video and it gives me a message: "Making this change would require changing a code that is locked by a template or a translator.  The change will be discarded."
Is the template the index page I use as my template for other pages?
What code is it that I need to change to insert the video?

The Best Answer

Are you sure you aren't working with a template driven page?
When you insert media files into DW, it must write code in the <head> tags to reference Scripts necessary for Flash media to work on the web. 
If you're working with a page that was created from a Template, the DWT page must have editable regions in the <head> tags, or you won't be able to add media to your web pages.
