Yes it does actually work with wordpress 4.1

This is actually a lot simpler to implement than the instructions suggest (far toooo many options, most of which you can ignore). Basically there are a two stages to do to make this work after installing the plugin and activating it:

1st upload your *.swf movie via ftp to the folder of your choice, which is easier if you choose the root directory (your public html folder of your website). You cannot use the Media uploader within wordpress as its not allowed for this file type.

2nd you will find on your Pages editor toolbar a new red flash logo button called "insert a kimili flash embed tag" if you hover your mouse over it. Position your mouse on the page where you'd like to insert the movie, Click this embed tag button and simply enter the name of the flash file in the SWF Definition section. Now the important bit: you MUST include the path before the filename, so if you've put the file in the root directory simply precede the file name with / , for example /mymovie.swf . You can specify height and width, then click the Generate button and it should insert something like this into your page :

[kml_flashembed publishmethod="static" fversion="8.0.0" movie="/mymovie.swf" width="600" height="450" targetclass="flashmovie"]

That really all there is to it, unless you need some specific settings you don't need to do anything else. If this doesn't work see the Support pages, that's what I did but as I say the instructions do seem to over-complicate it.

Very helpful and just what I needed!

This Flash embed plugin helped me place a Flex application in a WordPress site. I had one issue with drop down menus appearing behind the Flash object, but since I could easily set the wmode to transparent and fiddle with the z-index of the menu in CSS, the problem was fixed! Thanks!
