I think you're right about the issue. Using flash parameters is what is usual in the <object> tag.. but that is still not using <embed> ..which is what is needed.

If the flash movie were in an html page and it was embedded only with an <object> tag
then the movie would show in IE and not in FF and netscape..which require the <embed> tag to display it.
So usually the swf is embedded with both.
Don't know how this works with a jsp page...or are you saying the text is displaying
(some of the flash movie showing ) and just the images aren't..as that would be strange.

The movie is loading but the movie calls some external images (one being the background). They don't show?

well I know Firefox and Netscape are now javaScript based..maybe there is some kind of conflict between the javascript engine and a jsp page?..something that stops the flash movie loading images?..out of my field really..can only offer conjecture. You could maybe ask the same question in either javascript.. or FF browser

The OBJECT tag is used by Internet Explorer on Windows and the EMBED is used by Netscape Navigator (Macintosh and Windows) and Internet Explorer (Macintosh) to direct the browser to load the Macromedia Flash Player, so I'm thinking this is the issue. I'm passing the base url in the Object. Maybe if I change the image path input to flash parameters this might help?

Just looking at the code for that page..

.......
<script src="scripts.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript">
if(is_flash)
      {
      writeFlash('http://files.ea.com/downloads/ea/lotr/lotr_mainV2.swf', '950', '725');
      } else {
      document.write('');
      }
</script>
.......

is the only reference to the flash movie.. the function writeFlash is obviously server-side..so I guess you need to change that to include the <embed>
