    FireFox and Transparent Flash

    I'm trying to get a Flash file to show up as having a transparent background.

    I'm able to get it to show up properly in IE [or....it shows how I want it to in IE...be it properly coded or not]. However, when I attempt to view in FireFox it shows the regular background [which is white].

    Code:
     <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="550" height="360">
        <param name="movie" value="course.swf">
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
        <embed src="course.swf" width="550" height="360" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> is what is supposed to make it transparent.


    I eventually gave up and just changed the background of the flash file to match the page.

    I'm just curious if I did the code itself wrong [well...Dreamweaver did the code for me for this particular event] or if FireFox doesn't allow transparent flash files.

    Any help would be great.

    That was where I found out how to do it originally.

    I guess FireFox just isn't supported for this type of thing. [it said Mozzila was...but I guess FireFox isn't]

    It works for me. Have you tried installing the latest Flash Player?

    I have Flash 6 installed on this particular computer.

    No worries, I just changed the background color to match the webpage.
