    If when you test it locally you are testing in the Flash IDE and it works, then placing the swf in a different folder relative to the html page on the server is where your problem lies.  When you embed an swf into an html page, it essentially lives in the same folder as that html page, and needs to target any files it loads as if it is in that folder.  It does not have to be in the same folder, but it has to be coded to target files as if it is.
