I'd like to cache my flash movie on my page

Dear Experts,
I'd like to cache my flash movie on my html page, I do not want to download it again and again from the server when the page is called. Because, I will not change it for two weeks and the file is proportionally large. As far as I know, the browsers cache flash files, but I need to be sure..
I use https ( secure connection )
I wrote my html page like this. What do you think about it?

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="Cache">
<title>My Title</title>
</head>

<body>
<object width="1366" height="768">

<param name="movie" value="upt_video.swf">

<embed src="upt_video.swf" width="1366" height="768">

</embed>

</object>

</body>
</html>

The server isn't going to cache it because it just serves up the file.  Caching would just serve up the same file from a different location.  The only useful caching is in the browser.  And note that every different user / browser has their own cache.
