HTML embed flash not working

I have one flash file that will not work inside my network. When I embed the file in html it opens but when I press play it goes blank. I can embed another flash file and it will auto start. If I take the flash file that does not work and put it on another server outside my network it works.

If I put the url http://www.defelements.com/Yantis/sample.swf in my browser it works but if I embed that in html on my server it will not play.

note: that url is on another server, that is not my server.

As you explained the 2 files are working outside the network, I can see them from here too. So the problem is probably on the firewall port.

try opening port: tcp / 5222 and try again.

hope that helps

I copied the code to another server at my home and I do not have port 52222 open and it works.

I can embed other flash files and it works on my network.
The flash file that does not work has two files involved to run a .swf and a .flv
the swf  has code embed in it that calles the flv file

jarospiritCommented:
are you calling the flv locally or remotely(url).
The server might not have the MIME type for FLV
