i try to include a flash videoplayer into a side. i want to use the embed-tag to do so, however, whenever i try to include the necessary html code silverstripe replaces it with <object ...>, deleting all my flash variables i had inside the embed tag.

so my questions:

1) why does this happen
2) can i disable ANY replacement of my own html code. i dont want silverstripe to correct anything i insert as raw html actually.

no, i was talking about putting the HTML code into the content (by using the html editor).

my code reads like this here

<embed src="/assets/Uploads/flvplayer.swf" name="flashplayer" 
bgcolor="#FFFFFF" width="375" height="320" 
id=1752" pluginspage="" />

however, when i save it silverstripe adds an <obeject - tag and removes my "flashvars" and of course the player wont work anymore. i would simply like to keep silverstripe from doing anything with my added code.

ahhh I see. I have only used flash in SS through a element on the page which the client could change based on uploading a new flash file.

Sorry, haven't placed any flash into the content area.
