i have this php file that calls the name of a .swf file that is stored in a db.  i am trying to embed the .swf using the following code, but all i get is a white box in place of the actual .swf...am i doing somethign incorrectly?
<?php 
 
echo "<script src='AC_RunActiveContent.js' type='text/javascript'></script>";
 
// Recieving the variables. 
$performerName = $_GET["performerName"]; 
 
include 'dbconfig.php';
 
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die("Error connecting to video database");
 
 
$query =  mysql_query ("SELECT * FROM tour WHERE id = 10") or die ('Error: '.mysql_error ());
 
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query)){
 
echo "<script type='text/javascript'>";
 
echo "AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','300','height','169','src','assets/indexmenu/menu','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','".$row['trailerserverpath'].$row['trailer']."' );";
 
echo "</script><noscript><object classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0' width='300' height='169'>";
