Flash Video on a webpage outside of the current domain

I need to show a swf video on a webpage.  The flash video file and component are in a folder on the same server but in a different folder.  I have a server with multiple domains pointing to multiple domains.  The files are in a folder called "Misty-Pollard-New/Videos"   I can get it to show the video (auto play is false) but I cannot get it to show the skin with the play button that should come up under it.   I have changed the path to the things that I can (ie the scripts are in my main server account so I have changed those to http://www.brightideaswebdesign.com/scripts/----- ) but I cannot find where I would need to change anything for the skin.

Here is a link to the page where I am trying to add it
http://www.brightideaswebdesign.com/trying.html 

What am I doing wrong for it to now show?  All the files have been uploaded to the server.

Hi brightsusan,

http://www.brightideaswebdesign.com/SkinUnderPlay.swf is reporting as 404.  Are you sure you uploaded that file to that location?

Where can change that ? Its in the Misty folder
That file needs to be in the same folder with the other Flash files.  It's called by the skin source code so you don't have control over it.
How would I add a video to another page?  

Again, the files are in a folder named "Misty-Pollard-New/Videos" that is where all the files are located.  
So the path is http://www.brightideaswebdesign.com/Misty-Pollard-New/Videos/english_20opportunity.swf

I would like to actually end up adding it to site that is on the same server as well as another site that is not.  I would think there is someway to add it using the direct path in someway.

When I created the flash swf file, I made sure to put the entire path for the movie but for the skin there isn't an option to put the entire path unless I do a custom skin.  
What happens if you add the video to another page at a different directory level now?
it doesn't show the skin
Can you give me a link so I can see it?
