Adding fixed paths so that a script can be embedded remotely

This is actually a follow-up question to one that I had successfully answered a couple years ago, but need to tweak.  The original thread is at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Web_Graphics/Macromedia_Flash/Q_22915848.html.  I need to modify the script referenced there so that it works when the flash file is embedded in a remote site.   To briefly summarize...
1- The script adds random rotating image functionality to a header/banner on my site.  To see it working properly, check www.campspofford.org.
2- I need to embed the code for this in a remote site which will look to the main site for all of the files.  It is a third-party payment solution that I'm trying to customize to look like our main site.  The page in question here is http://campspofford.dojiggy.com.  
3- On the aforementioned remote site, the banner displays, but the random images don't show up.  I believe that it is because it is look for a path relative to the server it is running on.

I'm pretty certain that this is a really quick fix - one line maybe?  But I need help from you flash experts!

Thanks in advance!

The banner calls this image http://www.campspofford.org/images625x225/img57.jpg which is not present in the server. Hence not loading. Kindly check the path.

Thank you!  Something so simple, but I stared at it for quite some time and just didn't see the obvious.  I was indeed missing the directory from my specified path.  Thanks for setting me straight!
