What is the proper way to embed flash (.swf) into an Ebay listing?

I see it more and more on Ebay where there is a flash video or some sort of flash component in the Ebay listing.

Anybody know what HTML code would do this?

Try this html code,
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-4...
codebase=" " ID=banner_2000_08_15_b WIDTH=468 HEIGHT=60>
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE=""> <!use your SWF file instead>
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#000099> <EMBED src="" quality=high bgcolor=#000099 WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE=" "></EMBED>

i have used this code:

 <OBJECT id="FlashPlayer" width="290" height="135"
         <param name="movie" value="">
         <param name="quality" value="high">
         <EMBED src="" quality="high"  
             type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="290" height="135">

and inserted my url/swf  and it worked.......i have not tried to make the dimensions bigger yet or insert anyting other than 'test text'.

but that worked.

i will let you know how that works. I am going to try to place a larger ad with some animations and such and video to see how that works.
