    Default Flash works in Firefox but not in IE

    I have added flash to a website I'm working on. It is working fine in Firefox, but it is not working in IE. Can someone look at my code and tell me what I'm doing wrong? Here's the link:

    I'm pretty new at flash so it is probably something really dumb.. Many thanks for your help and your time.

    Hi there undone,

    try it like this...
    <div id="header-image">
    <object id="header_flash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="assets/mcnutt2.swf" width="960" height="298">
     <param name="movie" value="assets/mcnutt2.swf" />
     <param name="quality" value="High" />
     <param name="scale" value="ExactFit" />
     <param name="wmode" value="Transparent" />
     <param name="play" value="true" />
     <param name="loop" value="false" />
     <param name="menu" value="false" />
     <param name="allowfullscreen" value="false" />
     <param name="sAlign" value="L" />

    Default It's working but IE blocks it!

    Thanks, coothead! Your code worked in both, but it also messed a bit with the background design. I fiddled around with a combo of what I had and what you suggested and got it to work in both AND preserved my design, so I think I'm good to go.

    This is my first experiment with flash in a website. What is concerning me is how IE, depending on security settings, may block it from running unless you click on their status bar and allow it to run. Is there any way around that? I am guessing that people who are not very familiar with this won't know what to do and will assume the web page is broken.

    I just love this forum and all the help it offers for a newbie web designer and coder like me!
