    Ok This is how it works.. i upload 3 things into my host root of that domain

    mp3 file
    player0.swf
    mp0.xml

    The player0.swf is just the flash player
    The Mp0.xml has details of what should be played and colors etc..

    Now the html code i post to my blog is

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="200" HEIGHT="60"codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash7/cabs/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0">
    <PARAM NAME="movie" VALUE="player0.swf?loadFrom=mp0.xml">
    <param name="play" value="true">
    <PARAM NAME="quality" VALUE=high>
    <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#ffffff>
    <embed src="player0.swf?loadFrom=mp0.xml" WIDTH="200" HEIGHT="60" quality="high" bgcolor=#ffffff type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
    </embed>
    </object>

    This basically calls the swf and the xml file.

    Ok now the code inside the XML is this

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>
    <movie load="on" colorAll="#003366" mode="on" play="off" loop="off" tips="on" streaming="on" helpNote="THis%20is%20a%20Test" copyrightURL="http://www.consumerfinanceadvisor.com" projectTitle="steve" player="advanced"><catalog>
    <item><title>You Will Do Even Greater Works</title><file>steve1.MP3</file><stoppoint timeout="0">off</stoppoint><beforeurl trg="_self"></beforeurl><setpoints></setpoints></item>
    </catalog></movie>

    The wierd part about it is that.. if i leave the permalinks set to the default

    http://www.consumerfinanceadvisor.com/?p=123

    then it shows up in when you click the title. but as soon as i change the permalinks to

    http://www.consumerfinanceadvisor.com/2006/03/16/sample-post/

    i get what you see at the site

    Here is the deal.. permalinks seems to be causing the issue.. as if i leave it on the default it shows up on the main blog and on its own post but if i change to a permanent link path which is what i do for all my blogs then it wont show the player.. somehow the permalinks is throwing off the player from knowing where to look for the swf and xml.. IM SO CLOSE to getting this resolved just need peoples ideas

    Is this line correct in your XML?
    tips="on" streaming="on" helpNote="THis%20is%20a%20Test"
    Otherwise your code looks fine.

    Do you update your permalinks?
    BTW, I got a 404 on both links.

    ok now if i change the code above in my post from

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="200" HEIGHT="60"codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash7/cabs/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0">
    <PARAM NAME="movie" VALUE="player0.swf?loadFrom=mp0.xml">
    <param name="play" value="true">
    <PARAM NAME="quality" VALUE=high>
    <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#ffffff>

    Single post pages have a different .php file -- you need to add code to that as well as the Main Index Template (and you might want to look at the archive and category pages too).
