hi- I'm trying to get the header on this page to do a couple of things:

1. autoloop
2. play without controls.
3. play immediately without that buffering time.

Is it possible to do those three things?

it's not an .swf but an .flv

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" width="854" height="480" id = "Ocean">
  <param name="movie" value="ocean.swf">
  <param name="quality" value="high">
  <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
  <param name="allowFullScreen" value="True" />
  <embed src="ocean.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="854" height="480" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="True" >


Open in new window

I'm not sure I understand. The source is ocean.swf, although I do have it as an flv. I can use either one, but will need help making it work the way I want it to.
