    SWF not playing in IE

    Hello all, hope you are well.

    I have an swf embedded in my website.

    In google chrome and firefox it works fine however in IE8 it does not. I think it works in earlier versions of IE.

    Here is the code:

    Code:
    <TD vAlign=top align=left><EMBED height=100 type=application/x-shockwave-flash width=300 src="banner.swf"  originalWidth="375" originalHeight="125" bgcolor="#000080" quality="high" allowNetworking="internal" allowScriptAccess="never" allowFullScreen="true" play="true" loop="true"></TD>
    Can anyone suggest how to fix this?

    Thank you for any input.

    Kind regards, Mike

    Replace your <embed> code with this:
    Code:
    <object data="path_to_file/file.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="insert_width_of_movie" height="insert_height_of_movie">                    
              	<param name="movie" value="path_to_file/file.swf">
                 <param name="SomeOtherParam" value="ParamValue">
    </object>
    IE in particular requires the
    Code:
    <param name="movie" value="path_to_file/file.swf">
