A common misconception is that SWFObject can embed/control video files. This is not true. SWFObject only embeds Flash SWF files and cannot embed other types of media in an HTML page.

Previous versions of SWFObject
SWFObject is currently at version 2.2. It is important to note that version 2.x is a complete re-write of SWFObject; version 1.x used an entirely different syntax and codebase and is therefore incompatible with SWFObject 2.x. This site only covers SWFObject 2.x.
