I have some code that works fine in an html file. Rename it to cfml and it won't work. Can someone tell me why? Below is the code.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>video_pod</title>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<!--url's used in the movie-->
<!--text used in the movie-->
<!-- saved from url=(0013)about:internet -->
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="360"

height="240" id="video_pod" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="video_pod.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor"

value="#ffffff" /><embed src="video_pod.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="360" height="240"

name="video_pod" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"

</object>
</body>
</html>

that's not the issue... the problem is that the control is there but it says "click here to activate control" and never does anything.

Also note that when i double click on the html file, it runs just fine. Only when I access it through my web server does it give me the weird stuff.

Nevermind I figured it out... all the files should've been in the same directory.
