In my answer on Physics, I tried to embed this animation but it didn't work. Is there any way to embed an animation in a post?

You can embed animated gifs. So, use screen capture software to record the animation and then convert it to an animated gif file.

Sample animation.

Like I did here. :P – Alenanno Sep 29 '12 at 18:13

We only support a limited number of things that can be embedded in a post. Java applets aren't one of them, so the best you can do is just link to it.
