Find it impossible to embed a simple mov into the content pane. I've tried editing the Tiny MCE config file:

function nullConverter(url) {
   return url;
}

/**
* TinyMCE initialisation template.
* $ variables are replaced by string search & replace. It's pretty crude.
*/
// Prevents "Error: 'tinyMCE' is undefined" error in IE7 on Newsletter Recipient import.
if((typeof tinyMCE != 'undefined')) {
   tinyMCE.init({
      mode : "specific_textareas",
      language: "$Lang",
      textarea_trigger : "tinymce",
      width: -1,
      height: -1,
      auto_resize : true,
      theme : "advanced",
      content_css : "$ContentCSS",
      document_base_url: "$BaseURL",
      urlconverter_callback : "nullConverter",
      
      setupcontent_callback : "sapphiremce_setupcontent",
      cleanup_callback : "sapphiremce_cleanup",
      
      Theme_Advanced_Layout_manager : "SimpleLayout",
      theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "manually_placed",
      theme_advanced_toolbar_align : "left",

      theme_advanced_buttons1 : "italic,underline,strikethrough,separator,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,styleselect,formatselect,separator,bullist,numlist,outdent,indent,hr,charmap",
      theme_advanced_buttons2 : "undo,redo,separator,cut,copy,paste,separator,search,replace,separator,flash",
      theme_advanced_buttons3 : "",
      theme_advanced_buttons3_add : "emotions",
   /*

          extended_valid_elements : "*
  • " //"img[class|src|alt|title|hspace|vspace|width|height|align|onmouseover|onmouseout|name]"
       });
    }

But, when I type into the HTML editor

<embed src="some_reference_to_mov"></embed>

I would automatically get:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="undefined" height="undefined"><param name="movie" value="some_reference_to_mov" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="some_reference_to_mov" wmode="transparent" quality="high" menu="false" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="undefined" height="undefined"></embed></object>some_reference_to_mov&quot;


in it's place. Is there a fix for this?
