Fudging a flash hyperlink

    I've got a site I help maintain which has an adserver written in Perl (which I don't know).
    SEMrush
    A customer wants to put up a flash file which I've got working with
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="[url="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"]http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0[/url]" width="760" height="120" id="movie" align="">
    <param name="movie" value="[url="http://adserver.mysite.com/ads/crosses_760x120_2.swf"]http://adserver.mysite.com/ads/crosses_760x120_2.swf[/url]">
    <embed src="[url="http://adserver.mysite.com/ads/crosses_760x120_2.swf"]http://adserver.mysite.com/ads/crosses_760x120_2.swf[/url]" quality="high" width="760" height="120" name="movie" align="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" plug inspage="[url="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"]http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer[/url]"> 
    <param name="play" value="true">
    </object>
    
    Code (markup):
    which plays the file beautifully. The guys who wrote the flash files didn't embed the hyperlink within it, so I need to bodge it for them.

    Any ideas on how?

    I meant to reply to this one a little back SK so sorry I forgot.

    I thought thru your options and came out with a flat zero to start so - I went and got my reference books out and came out with another flat zero - the problem being in one sense that you are trying to link a "space" rather than an "object".

    However I don't know if you know of this group - the perl m[ou]ngers - they may be able to help:

    http://london.pm.org/

    http://london.pm.org/mailman/listinfo/london.pm

    So I am sorry that I could not help and it seems that nobody else could either but I just wanted you to know that I had tried and I hope the London Perl M[ou]ngers can. :)

    I've had no luck putting a link on a flash movie. But you may wanna look into some javascript stuff. See if that helps.
