I have a WP 3.0.2 site. When I try to embed a swf file I have uploaded, all I get to show up, in either a post or a page, is a white area the size of the height & width paramaters. In order to play the flash video, I need to  right click and select "play" from the menu so watch the movie.

I am trying to figure out what I am doing wrong or why there are not play, pause stop, controls showing up and why the video preview image does not show up either

I am pulling my hair out over this one.surprised

NOTE; The WP SWFObject Plug-ins do not help with this. I have tried many of them to no avail.

I'm not positive, but off the top of my head, it looks to me like your problem might be this line:

<param name="play" value="false" />

Try setting that to "true" and see if that fixes it to do what you want?

By the way, too - you really need to keep your WordPress installation up to date with the newest releases, as they are important for security and bug fixes.
