    Embedded Flash

    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to embed some flash in my site, but it doesn't seem to be working. When I type the full URL of the SWF, it comes up, but when I try to embed it it doesn't.

    I am using this HTML:

    Code:
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/s...rsion=6,0,29,0" width="300" height="400">
    		  <param name="movie" value="http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeykn...troduction.swf">
    		  <param name="quality" value="high">
    		  <embed src="<A href="http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeyknuts/introduction.swf">http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeyknuts/introduction.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="100"></object>
    All that appears is a white box, where the flash should be...
    Does anyone know whats wrong please?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Sorry mate, still doesn't work:S

    It turns out like this: http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeyknuts - and the white space is where the flash should be.

    Please could you or someone else help me?

    This worked for me, I tried it myself.

    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/s...rsion=6,0,29,0"
    width="100" height="100">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeykn...troduction.swf">
    <param name="quality" value="high">
    <embed src="<A href="http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeyknuts/introduction.swf">http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeyknuts/introduction.swf"
    width="100" height="100" quality="high"
    pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed></object>

    Just change the width and height to the numbers you want, and you can also take off the http://www.gawmir.com/music/monkeyknuts/ from the movie name value and src if you like.

    there should not be the <a href="xxx"> in the embed src attribute, remove that. It was put up by the forums, trying to parse the url or something.
