    Based on your code you're passing arguments directly to your .swf file so it would have to control those behaviors. If this is not the case, do this:

    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <param name="autoStart" value="true">

    Not just those two parameters, but all parameters.

    That's my guess as to what's going on without knowing how your .swf if coded.

    i tried that but it does not seem to work. the odd thing is when applied the player starts with a pause button instead of a play button.. which would indicate that it should be autoplaying. but it doesnt?

    If you're using a tool to generate the .swf, try another tool. Plenty of freeware Flash .swf player alternatives out there so don't waste your time trying to get this one to work. I personally use Moyea Pro, happens to be a Windows product I run under Parallels on my Mac - it's amazing. Here's a page listing all kinds of alternatives for Mac and Windows.
