Jeremy ChopraSWF video will not play in FIREFOX or SAFARI but fine in IE and CHROME

Hi everyone,

I'm having trouble getting my video to play in Firefox and chrome on the following webpage..

http://cascadepictures.co.uk/reel.html

The space where the video is just loads as a white block. I read somewhere that it has something to do with the code for the swfplayer? But not sure what I need to do to fix it.

I put this same post up on the general web design forum and Curtis Thompson was helpful in pointing out that it was likely a "flash cross browser" issue with the code used by dreamweaver for the swf player.. I found a site where they had flash object tag for compatibility with other browsers but am not completely sure where to place it in dreamwever or what to replace from the current code I have?

My code is the standard one I got from inserting the swf player into my page although I removed the portion that left a box to demand an upgrade to a newer flash player.

I'm guessing I need to change something after the section stating:
"<!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->" ?

But so far no luck as I just seem to be making a mess.. The rest of my code and page are working fine though...

I'm using Dreamweaver CS5

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
