How to reference an 4fv on a Flash Media Server from a web server on another server.

The code below was taken directly from the Flash Media Server "start page" that ships with the server.

For starters, I simply want to reference / play a video from the media server by embedding this code on another web server.  

It seems that some additional changes to to this code or to my website server itself but I don't know what those are.


<object width='640' height='377' id='StrobeMediaPlayback' name='StrobeMediaPlayback' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' classid='clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000' >
<param name='movie' value='swfs/StrobeMediaPlayback.swf' /> <param name='quality' value='high' />
<param name='allowScriptAccess' value='always' /> <param name='bgcolor' value='#000000' /> <param name='allowfullscreen' value='true' />
<param name='flashvars' value= '&src=rtmp://'/>
<embed src='swfs/StrobeMediaPlayback.swf' width='640' height='377' id='StrobeMediaPlayback' quality='high' allowScriptAccess='always' bgcolor='#000000' name='StrobeMediaPlayback' allowfullscreen='true'
pluginspage=''   flashvars='&src=rtmp://' type='application/x-shockwave-flash'> </embed></object>

You need just add full URL to your SWF file from another server

<param name='movie' value='' />

<embed src=''

Don't forget to create crosssdomain.xml file on your second server.

Thanks.  "doh" on my part.

I'm not sure what the contents of a crossomain.xml file are but I did not need one after specifying a FQDN.

Ready to award the points for the right answer (which got me most of the way there) but before I close this question, I apparently do need the crossdomain.xml file. Interestingly enough, one browser renders the flash fine, another one does not...possibly because of the cross-site reference.

Any additional pointers much appreciated.
