Web Player Feature

I would like to see a way to have Scratch projects play on a web page in the same way that MicroWorlds projects can.

This may already exist, but I haven't figured out how to make a Scratch project open in presentation mode.

Re: Web Player Feature

Not sure if I understand, but I think you are asking about the presentation mode button that is just below the stage on the left. The picture looks like an easel for painting. This is the presentation mode button. Then if you want to play your project from in presentation mode, one way is to hook up the green flag to your code. Then in presentation mode there is a tiny green flag at the top right of the screen which you can press.

There is also a web player, but first you have to create an account at
Once you've done that just click "share" in Scratch at the top of the screen.

Re: Web Player Feature

I am going to try to answer the different questions I think you might be asking:

1. If you want to embed Scratch projects into other site (i.e. your personal homepage) you can use this code as example:
Soon, we are going to generate the HTML code for you to copy and paste it (like YouTube does).

2. If you want to be in presentation mode on the Scratch desktop application, as Jay said, just click the presentation mode button:

3. If you want to switch to presentation mode in the website, you cannot do that right now. The best we can offer you is to download the project to your computer and then do presentation mode there (see #2)

I hope this answers your questions!

Thanks for Scratch-ing :-)

Re: Web Player Feature

The link to the embed code is broken. Can you repost it? I'd love to be able to post kid's projects on our school site and as part of our CD Yearbook.

We've just started with Scratch and the students love it. Thanks for this incredible empowering program. It's the best program I've seen in years.

Re: Web Player Feature

Hi, Nick and Andres. For some reason the html on that page does not display in Safari. (And not too well in Firefox, either, on my Mac.) For those who have been having trouble reading that page, here is the simplest way to do it:

<applet id=ProjectApplet style=display:block code=ScratchApplet codebase= archive=ScratchApplet.jar height=387 width=482><param name=project value=../../static/projects/jay/></applet>

You would replace this:


with the URL of your Scratch project.
