Cannot figure out how to stop a Flash SWF from looping

I have a series of flash swf files that I am attempting to incorporate into my website.  My problem is that I cannot figure out how to stop them from endlessly looping.  I really do not see what the problem is, I've tried in every way that I can think of to turn loop to false and nothing seems to work.

The page is located at:   http://ss.scottberriman.com/template/sellinseverin/buyers_presentation/index.php?slide=2

All help is very appreciated.
<script language="javascript">
	if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {
		alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");
	} else {
		AC_FL_RunContent(
			'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0',
			'width', '720',
			'height', '540',
			'src', '/template/sellinseverin/buyers_presentation/Slide<?=$_GET['slide']?>',
			'quality', 'high',
			'pluginspage', 'http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer',
			'loop', 'false',
			'menu', 'false'
 
			); //end AC code
	}
</script>
<noscript>
	<object classid="clsid:d28cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="720" height="540" loop="false" id="Slide<?=$_GET['slide']?>" align="middle">

did you check in the flash video itself to make sure it doesn't loop?

thanks

Yeah, unfortunately I think that this is the correct solution.  I have a program that converts powerpoint to flash.  The stupid thing makes the individual files loop in the swf itself instead of setting a parameter at runtime.
