This is my first time incorporating flash into a silverstripe website. I'm trying to embed a swf file (portfolio_loader.swf) that calls another .swf file (portfolio.swf). The second swf files also uses an XML file to load images. I've uploaded all the necessary files into my assets folder.

I'm trying to embed it here: The swf is embedded, but it doesn't seem to load the second swf file.

However if I call it directly.. it works fine.

I've used the following to embed it:

<object width="800" height="450" id="header" align="middle">
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
<param name="movie" value="" />
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#2c2c39" />
<embed src="" menu="false" quality="high" bgcolor="#2c2c39" width="800" height="450" name="header" align="middle" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />

Help would be very much appreciated. :)

Edit: Sorry.. this should have been posted in the general questions area. My mistake.

If you're putting that code into the wysiwyg editor, that'll strip most of the code out.
You could make a custom page type to allow a custom file where you hard code it.
