Can I embed a presentation within a presentation?

I am trying to embed an Presenter generated SWF into a web page

It works OK if I try to embed a single slide e.g.

<object width="660" height="405">
<param name="movie" value="mysite/data/swf/slide1.swf"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed src="mysite/data/swf/slide1.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="660" height="405"></embed></object>

but if I want to embed the player in order for the viewer to watch/interact with the whole presentation, e.g., by linking to playershell

<object width="660" height="405">
<param name="movie" value="mysite/player/playershell.swf"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed src="mysite/player/playershell.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="660" height="405"></embed></object>

Then I get a blank page. The object is there, and if I right click and click 'play' then I get the message "**** called the test framelabel inside the flash player"

If I enter the URL mysite/player/playershell.swf directly into my address bar, the whole presentation plays back fine. But not when I try to embed it.

Any suggestions?
