i was trying to make a flash video playback using swfobject java script. there is a folder called flash in the root folder (site) and there is the video called flash_sample.swf in there. i dont know why doesn't it work. it's just a blank page with the text that i enter in the body section: This element can contain.....

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

    <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        swfobject.embedSWF("flash/flash_sample.swf", "flash_movie", "300", "200", "8.0.0");


    <div id="flash_movie">This element can contain content that search engines can index, and which is helpful to those who do not have Flash installed.</div>

Default Re: playing flash file

Hi, you should check the link to your script folder also. this is because src="swfobject.js"> has indicate link to swfobject.js file.
