I have simple embed Flash Player tag on my web page and the video plays but it always starts automatically. The file name is really long, but once you get past that, you'll see I have 'play="-1"' and i've also tried 'autoplay="false" but nothing stops it from starting automatically when the page loads.

Not sure if you good with Javascript, but I would recommend the SWFObject library for integrating SWF files into your webpages.  The reason is because the implementation is simply more readable.  It's also a great deal more flexible.  Check out

Thanks airestav - i'm not great with Javascript but this will help a lot.

It seems like the reason I can't turn off the autoplay is because the file I am playing comes with a lot of configurations already done. Do you think this might be the problem?
