How to embed a flash video on a drupal page for firefox

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am trying to embed a flash video in a drupal page.  Using a WYSIWYG editor, I edit the HTML and embed the file.  To accomodate both Explorer and FireFox, I am trying to place the following tags:

<object id="christchild" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab" width="600" height="300"><param name="movie" value="christchild.swf" /><embed src="christchild.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"
width="600" height="300" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></object>

But everytime I save it, it drops the embed tag - and then will work only in IE, not FireFox.  

Any ideas how I can either:
   Get drupal to stop deleting the embed tag, or
   Insert the Flash in a way that drupal accepts and works in both IE and FireFox.
