Problem integrating a Flash video player

I have a custom Flash Video player on my site and it works.. It grabs the video ID from the URL and begins to play the video, however, the buttons in the player don't do anything! They are active, for example, when you hover over them the button image changes to what it's suppose to, etc.. But when you click the buttons they just don't do anything. <confused>

I know that the player is fine because it works fine on my old site. I get the player into my code this way:



function Player($play = 0) {
    return '<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" width="480" height="300" id="Player" align="middle">
               <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
               <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
               <param name="FlashVars" value="id=' . $play .'" />
               <param name="movie" value="Player.swf" />
               <param name="quality" value="high" />
               <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" />   
               <embed src="Player.swf" FLashVars="sid=' . $playSid . '" quality="high" bgcolor="#000000" width="480" height="300" name="Player" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="true" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />

Any thoughts?

Hi - did you check the resulting code in the generated HTML?
