Firstly, don't do that!
Any video that is set to autoplay will alert anyone and everyone nearby that someone is not working if they are at work. If you set a video to be available and not autoplay, then people will click on it when they want to.
Secondly, it looks like you've done most of the page in AP divs. Don't do that, either. You need to set up a web page that flows normally.
As to the Flash, I have to wonder if this isn't one of three things:
- You didn't upload all of the Flash elements that are necessary (and uploading the entire website should take care of that.
- Your server does not recognize the .SWF MIME type, in which case you need to edit your .htaccess file (Apache) or allow Flash on your IIS server.
- Browsers are no longer trusting Flash on websites and must be told in advance that they may play it. You can check for this by trying to play the flash file locally by previewing the page in the same browser you are using to check it on the server.

Thank you for your reply!
One questions though:
What do you mean by will alert anyone and everyone nearby that someone is not working if they are at work?
I just wanted a simple slideshow to play on the front page. I tried gif, but the quality was so bad.
But thanks! I will try editing the file and the browser.
Well, there's your video. And it starts playing as soon as the web page loads.
So, someone clicks on a link to your website and your video starts playing. In a work enviromnent, the sound from that video immediately starts. Alerting everyone to the fact that they're watching a video, not working.
