Embed FLV in CFM page

I have a webpage that I need to include a FLV in. I want the FLV to play on the page when it is opened. I have included all the code...but it isn't showing up for some reason. The link to the page is: http://www.miswaco.com/Products_and_Services/Wellbore_Productivity/Specialized_Tools/Finger%20Basket.cfm

Appreciate any help.

To be honest ksa i would sack off macromedias flv player and use:

I have had to do that on the last project I worked on. It's a lot easier to setup as well.

The link that you're trying to play (streamname) doesnt seem to exist:

http://www.miswaco.com/Products_and_Services/Wellbore_Productivity/Specialized_Tools/FLV/FingerBasket.flv?

Is the server configuring to run flv for this site? You have to add the extra mime type into IIS for example

Thanks....but this isn't really the solution I want. I don't want users to be able to jump ahead...I just want them to be able to play it. What i need is a simple fix for this.

Underneath the <param> flashvars try adding an embed. I've used the mamcromedia FLVPlayer that you are using before and looking at my code I've always had one of them, so try:

<embed src="FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" flashvars="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=/Products_and_Services/Wellbore_Productivity/Specialized_Tools/FLV/FingerBasket&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" quality="high" scale="noscale" width="342" height="192" name="FLVPlayer" salign="LT" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" />

I'm not 100% sure that will work but I've noticed that mine always have that.

Tomarse111Commented:
hmmm the other thing i notice is you have an <object> inside another <object>? Is that on purpose?

I'm not 100% certain you can do that. I think each <object> needs to be closed off before using a new one

When I download your flv file from:

http://www.miswaco.com/Products_and_Services/Wellbore_Productivity/Specialized_Tools/FLV/FingerBasket.flv

it doesn't work when viewing it. Check to make sure that the file is working and placed in the correct place (the above URL). Then only use one <object> just to try and get this one working and then we can build up if necessary. Lets not complicate it with trying to run mixed <object> tags for now.

It works when I play it. I took out the extra object tag for now and added your embed tag.

You've now got the streamname pointing at:

http://www.miswaco.com/FLV/FingerBasket.flv

which, again, doesn't seem to be a legitimate flv file.

Where in your site is the FLV located?
Where in your site is the FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf located?

OK. From a code point of you that now looks fine I think (it matches up to what i have working on my flv on my test site at least). The only problem I now suspect is that the flv is somehow corrupt, as still when i download it and urn it it says

Unrecognized format for

'C:\DOCUME~1\TRJENK~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\FingerBasket-1.flv'

OK I've got your flv to work. Running that page with firebug now shows there is an error in your swfobjectmodified.js:

rv.split is not a function
[Break on this error] var pv = ua.pv, v = rv.split(".");
