hi guys,

I have an old web page that is working fine, i have an embeded flash object which plays fine in ie, but does not play in google chrome.
in chrome it shows just a blank space.
I am not sure if i have to change the code to make sure it work in any browser.

see sample page at

Please advise, this is code that i am using
            <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
                       width="953" height="395">
                <param name="movie" value="site_flash/flash/header3_fv8.swf?button=1" />
                <param name="quality" value="high" />
                <param name="menu" value="false" />
                <!--[if !IE]> <-->
                <object data="flash/header3_fv8.swf?button=1"
                        width="980" height="403" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
                 <param name="quality" value="high" />
                 <param name="menu" value="false" />
                 <param name="pluginurl" value="" />
                 FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).

    update your flash settings using this template
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="550" height="400" id="movie_name" align="middle">
        <param name="movie" value="movie_name.swf"/>
        <!--[if !IE]>-->
        <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="movie_name.swf" width="550" height="400">
            <param name="movie" value="movie_name.swf"/>
            <a href="">
                <img src="" alt="Get Adobe Flash player"/>
        <!--[if !IE]>-->

    Most people tend to use SWFObject, which handles differences between browsers:

    The generator will even create the webpage for you.  What more could you want?
