    Prevent flash video from playing automatically

    chuckee Level 1


      I know extremely little about Flash, and have been sent a completed SWF file, which I have inserted into my webpage with the code below.

      The problem is that it starts playing automatically. Is there some way that I can add a parameter to the code below so that the video doesn't start automatically, or will the SWF file need to be re-created?

      Thanks very much
