Object not showing when added to web page

I have included an object in my presentation.  When I publish it and view the presentation it works fine.

However, when I include the presentation in a page on my website - I use Visual Web Developer - the object doesn't display - no errors just a blank space where the object should be.

I include the flash file thus

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="player/playershell.swf" width="900" height="650">

<param name="movie" value="player/playershell.swf?rqPresentationID=player" />

<param name="quality" value="best" />

<param name="scale" value="show all" />

<param name="menu" value="false" />

<param name="FlashVars" value="vBgColor=0x" />

</object>

the rest of the presentation works, just the object that doesn't.   I am greateful for any ideas.

Hi Sally,

You should be using the following code to embed the presentation into your website:

<OBJECT classid='clsid:527CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,79,0' WIDTH='600' HEIGHT='400' ID='player' ALIGN=''>

<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE='player/playershell.swf?rqPresentationID=TestPresentation'>

<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE='best'>

<PARAM NAME=scale VALUE='show all'>

<PARAM NAME=menu VALUE='false'>

<PARAM NAME=FlashVars VALUE='vBgColor=0x0000ff'>

<EMBED WIDTH='600' HEIGHT='400' src='player/playershell.swf?rqPresentationID=TestPresentation' NAME='player' quality='best' scale='show all'  ALIGN='' FlashVars='vBgColor=0x0000ff' TYPE='application/x-shockwave-flash' PLUGINSPAGE='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer' swLiveConnect='true' menu='false'>

</EMBED>

</OBJECT>

If you continue to have issues, you may consider just embedding the presentation as an iframe.
