my MySpace URL: www.myspace.com/littleatari

My problem is that i've been trying to get an embeded player to show up but it wont. I already have one similar to it up and that working. I input the code and then after i'm done it doesnt show up. I go back and check the code to see that it's changed. The url for the video doesn't the beginning.
It's supposed to look like this:
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/3wh4lO4AEJY"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/3wh4lO4AEJY" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed>

But instead it looks like this:
<param name="movie" value="http://www...com/v/3wh4lO4AEJY"></param><embed src="http://www...com/v/3wh4lO4AEJY" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed>

The youtube url is gone.
i just want to know how to prevent it from changing on its own.

Looks like MySpace prevents you from hotlinking to movies on another domain. Either place them on your own domain or forget it.

Actually myspace doesn't allow the object tag. This link (http://myspacesupport.com/) may be of help to you. Try this for your flash code

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/3wh4lO4AEJY" menu="false" quality="high" width="425" height="350" name="index" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

Here is another good link (http://mygen.co.uk/).

Myspace is dumb, in quirks mode, blocks lots of code, and is ...addictive.
