Flash video code from a news site not working (4 posts)

    Hi, I've been trying to embed a video from a news channel online into my blog. I'm straight copy and pasting the code, but it doesn't work, the actual code ends up displaying on the post rather than the video. I've had this happen with video code from several different news outlets. It's frustrating, they give you the code and then it doesn't work! I've tried a couple of plugins as well, but am clearly not picking out the file name correctly. Here is the code I'm currently trying to embed...any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Code is from here:

    http://www.fox44.net/global/video/flash/popupplayer.asp?ClipID1=2632708&h1=Bonus%3A%20%20Missing%20Girl%20Press%20Conference&vt1=v&at1=News&d1=107933&LaunchPageAdTag=News&activePane=info&rnd=16962112

    And this is the code they provide:

    <object id="WNVideoCanvasDEFAULTdivWNVideoCanvas" width="400" height="340">
    <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
    <param name="quality" value="high">
    <param name="wmode" value="windowless"></param>
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always">
    <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.fox44.net/global/video/flash/widgets/WNVideoCanvas.swf"></param>
    <embed
    src="http://www.fox44.net/global/video/flash/widgets/WNVideoCanvas.swf"

    But I can't even find the right swf file in the code! For all of the plugins I've found, you'd need that....and if it's in there, I can't find it. The one swf file is not the actual video.
