I have a function called jsPause in my movie that I call in my javascript:


of coures I get a handle to the SWF movie file into "movie".  Anyhow this works great in IE but does not work in firefox.  Its like jspause() doesn't exist.  Below is my object/embed code and you'll note that swliveconnect is set to true.  What am I doing wrong?
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="640px" height="500px" id="[iNetVideoPlayer1]" name="fVideo">
<param name="movie" value="video3.swf" />
<param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="salign" value="lt" />
<param name="swliveconnect" value="true" />
<param name="loop" value="false" />
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="false" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" />
<embed src="video3.swf" width="640px" height="500px" name="[iNetVideoPlayer1]" wmode="opaque" quality="high" salign="lt" swliveconnect="true" loop="false" menu="false" allowfullscreen="false" bgcolor="#000000" />
