Thanks, Dave,

So flickr slideshows can't be embedded with any of these because they
aren't .swf files, right?

(e.g. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobsyouruncle/sets/72157612582511784/show/)

For that matter, I don't find links to youtube vids that are links to
.swf files, either

e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4ljY0Z-8Gc, which has embed code:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie"
name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param
name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

How would I convert that?
