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",

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?
