Okay, I've perhaps made some progress. I originally got the mp3 player from http://www.internaldrive.com/2009/03/11/making-a-flex-mp3-player/ which works perfectly. So, I figured I'd download the .swf and upload it to my site. I did this and got the same results. This is making me think its a server-side issue..but what could possibly happen to make it not retrieve ID3 info/display visuals?
i just tried your link in firefox and it gave me security sandbox errors. This may or may not be something to do with it. I've tried similar things and in my experience it's usually down to timing of when events do/do not fire. check that ur not making assumptions about when something has ocurred, or been initialised - i also got reference to null objects on ur link.
Well the directory where the original mp3 player swf resides is restricted, so I cant tell if there are other files that need to be in the same directory, but i did try moving only the .swf and .html file to their own folder locally and it worked like a charm...just doesnt make sense...how are you able to tell its referencing a null object? Is there an addon of some sort for firefox that can see this stuff?

Not sure if this helpful, but I went to your site and immediately recieved this -
TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
I tend to see this semi-often now that I've installed the debug version of the Flash player, so it may be nothing... or maybe it is?
i just installed the debug player for IE and from what i'm seeing its mainly not able to remotely fetch ID3 info, I'm going to upload the mp3 and try loading the data locally from the server and see what happens...I have my fingers crossed
Sweetness...that was it...for some reason it won't load from a remoteURL even with allowScriptAccess set as "always"...oh well..this will work for now...thank you for all your help!
okay, now for problem #2..you can go to http://www.p455w0rd.net/ and @ the top-right (just to the right of the "Thank You" animation, is the mp3 player...when i exclude the wmode property it works fine with adobe's lovely lavender-puke background..but when i utilize transparency, it doesnt recognise mouse actions (hover/click)..i figure this is probably a bug, so is there a simple fix?
Used CSS's z-index property and it worked in IE..but not for chrome
