    Safari Screwing Up Flash File Display

    Hey,

    I am using a pop-up to play a SWF file. It looks great in firefox
    but safari screws it up. Basically, with safair, it stretches out the swf file
    so it breaks through the pop-up. Also, there are black bars at the top and bottom of the flash file (I figure that was intentional, I didn't develop it, I just build the pop up)

    It looks fine on firefox but awful on Safair. Does safari need specific commands in the embed tag? All I have is this for my popup code:

    <embed src="file.swf">

    The popup is great. I just wonder why Safari shows the embedded swf file differently from Firefox and if there is a way to fix this.

    Thanks

    Think I fixed it using object:

    <object
    classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com
    /pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
    width="340" height="250" id="movie" align="">
    <param name="movie" value="file.swf">
    <embed src="file.swf" quality="high" width="340"
    height="250" name="movie" align=""
    type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    plug inspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
    </object>

    I hope this helps other users out there.
