Playing Flash movie file continuously

by eerunee / June 17, 2008 1:00 AM PDT

I am trying to play a flash movie file on my website, and would like to play this clip continuously without manually replaying it. I was wondering if there is a Parameter name/value tag that I can use to achieve this.

Here is my Object Tag:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0"
width="160" height="120" id="MaryamSlideShow" align="left" class="FlashMovie">
<param name="movie" value="Multimedia/MaryamSlideShow.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="play" value="true" />
<param name="bgColor" value="#FFFFFF" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<embed src="Multimedia/MaryamSlideShow.swf"
width="160" height="120"
quality="high"
play="true"
bgcolor="#FFFFFF"
wmode="transparent"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>

playcount="loop"

Why the 10000? This will appear to be a loop till it counts down to 0 but it is not a loop.
"true" has already been determined

1. Playcount, as far as I can see, requires a numeric value. And "loop" isn't numeric.
2. 10.000 repetitions for a flash movie seemed enough to me for a web-page. Assuming it's half a minute, that's 5000 minutes, that's more than 90 hours, that's nearly 4 days. But if it isn't enough, just add a zero, so it will continue for more than 35 days.
