    How do you get flv files to play using <OBJECT>?

      1.)

      The following code was downloaded from the Adobe site, and edited by me, but I would like to play flv files instead of SWF.

       

      <object

            classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

            width="550"

            height="400"

            id="shadow"

            align="middle">

         <param

              name="shadow"

              value="Shadow.flv">

              <!--[if !IE]>-->

              <object

                   type="application/x-shockwave-flash"

                   data="Shadow.flv"

                   width="550"

                   height="400">

                <param

                     name="shadow"

                     value="Shadow.flv">

            <!--<![endif]-->

            <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash">

            <img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif"

             alt="Get Adobe Flash player">

             </a>

            <!--[if !IE]>-->

            </object>

            <!--<![endif]-->

        </object>

       

      I thought flv was a more prolific filetype than SWF, and that flv was the norm....  I'd prefer to use the filetype which uses the least amount of disk space, and loads faster, between the two of them.

       

      2.)

      Also, I need to learn more about classid, because I do not know if the classid in the original code is that, which I need.  Is there a listing of class id types out there?  I do know what clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000 means....

       

      Please help
