What format does the Tinymce editor expect for flash?

I want to be able to click the flash button in the tinymce editor and navigate to a swf file and have it play in the content area. When I create my flash movies I am using the FLVPlayback component in Actionscript 3. This method does not use a single swf file but mutliple swfs and an flv and a javascript to dynamically write the embed tag. It also supports some syntax for IE to work. When I put all the files together in my assets/flash folder and press the button in Tinymce I can navigate and select the main swf file. When I look at the page I have a flash player that is the correct size but no skin and it won't play the video. I am assuming that the Tinymce button is very old and doesn't know what to do with the way flash does things these days.

What format does tinymce expect to find flash files?
