"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

We've run into this problem with many of our clients - the trick is remembering the swf is called relative to the page (line 11) and the data.xml (on line 12) is called by the player.

So it all depends on where these files are located and where they are relative to eachother.  Typically they are placed in a folder at the root level of the THEME.  

If so change "banner.swf" to "/sites/all/themes/MYTHEME/MYPLAYERFOLDER/banner.swf"
if the XML file is on the same level as the swf that should be all you need.

Good Luck
