Standalone file

Hello, I hope this is a simple request.
I have had a website made for me in flash 4, with videos and pictures. It is not for the web at present. I would like to put it on a DVD firstly to act as a portfolio.
I have the following files: index.swf, index.fla, mojaveexternalall2.swf, index.html and all the video .flv files. I know nothing about Flash.
My question is how do i export it all so i just need to copy a single file onto a DVD and the recipient just needs to double click on the file for it all to work on their computer.
Any help much appreciated.

I have managed to do this and it was quite simple.
I just Published a MAC.app and a WIN.exe file.
Then burned these and the video file onto a DVD.
That's all there is to it!

glad you figured that out.

2 ( OK, 3 ) other suggestions to help your presentation/portfolio be more proffessional.

fist off, does it really need to be on a dvd rather than a cd? is it a data dvd for the computer or does it need to play in a dvd player?

i try to keep it just on a cd as i find clients/potential clients are more likely to look at it rather than as a dvd

second is to make sure all your auxillary files are invisible on the disc. most disc authoring programs will do that for you ( you don't want anyone seeing, let alone poking around your 'Resouces" or "images" folders and other files.)

the next is sometimes a little more tricky, depending on your disc authoring program. that is to make a true hybrid disc, with a mac and an ISO volume ( for PCs), so mac users will only see the mac player ( .app) and PC users will only see their player ( .exe )

Many thanks for your post, that's a very good idea to put it onto a CD and hide the video files.
Best wishes
