Hi I have posted this question before bust no replies..so posting it again..

I am having difficulty to embed a .swf inside IE. The src inside the embed tag does't end with .swf but it sends the request to the server which redirects you to the .swf .. this works fine inside firefox .. any tips on this implementation

Hm. You didn't provide any example source, so it's hard to say anything specific; however, there is an article over at A List Apart that you may find interesting.

Hope this helps...

Thanx for the reply here is the example of wat I am trying to do

<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://localhost:8080/vts/v/video listingId=100001"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
<param name=allowScriptAccess value="always"></param><embed src="http://localhost:8080/vts/v/video listingId=100001" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350" allowScriptAccess="always"></embed></object>


http://localhost:8080/vts/v/video listingId=100001

this will redirect to
http://video-int.superpages.com/player/test.swf videoId=100001

but the .swf player is not getting the input parameter videoId=100001 .. I was thinking it has to do with the HTTP response that is sent after redirect and its bloacking the request query string.. because this works fine in FF

If you're using a strict doctype in your page, you may being tripped up by one of the params in your object tag. Specifically,

<param name=allowScriptAccess value="always">

Should be

<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always">

If that doesn't resolve the issue (it may not), you may find this article from Adobe helpful. It looks like the section that discusses flashvars may help.

Hope it does...

Again thanks for the reply..I just put some logs in my action script and here what I got

original src inside embed
http://localhost:8080/vts/v/video listingId=123

server redirect to
http://localhost:8080/vts/test.swf videoId=xyz

but in flash player actually got
http://localhost:8080/vts/test.swf listingId=123
