How to get old swf files to play with the lastest flash players
I'm fairly new to flash, and I don't really understand flash coding very well to fix my problem. I also like to add that, this freeware program was created by a Japanese programer and I cannot contact them for help, because their website no longer exists.
I am hosting a client through my computer where people can draw together in a room. Before entering, there is list that shows usernames that are currently drawing in that room. The problem is no one can see the list of names in the latest flash player. In order to see the names the flash player needs to be downgraded to version 188.8.131.52. Is there a way to fix this by changing the coding?
This a working example of what I am talking about, it isn't my website but it is essentially the same http://midna.info/pchat/
when I open the HTML file in my dreamweaver the following code in the flash section is written like this:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" id="pchat_user_list" align="middle" height="300" width="200"> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"> <param name="movie" value="pchat_user_list.swf"> <param name="quality" value="low"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff"> <embed src="pchat_user_list.swf" quality="low" bgcolor="#ffffff" name="pchat_user_list" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" align="center" height="300" width="200"> </object>

You must have the flash source code to do any changes for the problem you encounter. The HTML embedding has nothing to do with that unfortunately.

The classid is only needed for IE6 which is now dead - if you get rid of that then the object tag will then be able to work for all modern browsers and you can then get rid of the embed - which is only there to avoid needing complicated conditional comments to nest two object tags (one for IE6 and one for all other browsers).
