Flash movie - controller not displaying

I am using flash 8 pro to import an flv video file and outputing video.swf and SteelExternalPlaySeekMute.swf. Problem is the player portion at the bottom does not display in a webpage. It displays fine when I play locally.

Here is the code I am using to embed. I am using the method to avoid the box that displays around flash content in IE. I have tried the more orthodox method object embed.

<div id="flashcontent">
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
   var so = new SWFObject("Video/GD_Teams.swf", "GD_Teams", "320", "280", "8", "#000000");
   so.write("flashcontent");
</script>

you have to copy the "SteelExternalPlaySeekMute.swf" also in same folder where you have the "Webpage" which embeds the SWF

catch here is:

when you run SWF only, SWF relative path will be the same folder where SWF resides..
and when SWF gets embed in a webpage/HTML, SWF relative path changes to its HOST means, that webpage,
so you need to copy the "SteelExternalPlaySeekMute.swf" in the folder where HTML file resides.

it seems you have both SWF in "Video" folder, and HTML outside "Video" folder.
just copy "SteelExternalPlaySeekMute.swf" file outside "Video" folder.

All will work fine.
