Kimili Flash Embed

Provides a WordPress interface for SWFObject 2, the best way to embed Flash content on any site.

Note: Because this plugin has been around for a while and numerous older versions exist, yet version 1.4 is the first version to actually be included in the WordPress Plugin Repository, any older versions are NOT available here. If you'd like to download an older version, you can do so at the Kimili Flash Embed for WordPress Home Page.
