<param name="movie" value=" file_name.swf?videoFile=christmas_1.flv">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="True" />
<embed src=" file_name.swf?videoFile=christmas_1.flv" quality="high" pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="320" height="270" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="True">
