Actually they are swf files. I took a quick look, but couldn't find the 
source URL -- it also looks like they're trying pretty hard to prevent 
you from embedding the show on another page. If you can find the link 
then I don't see why flash.php would not show the slideshow.

flash.php will show YouTube videos -- any flash content. Take a look at 
davidgilbert.org -- lots of useless videos (from many sources) on there, 
all served with flash.php.

Just use the src (http://www.youtube.com/v/D4ljY0Z-8Gc&hl=en&fs=1) -- 
usually just copy the YouTube url.
