This is the kind of format you need:

However, it does look like Flickr require a slightly modified html 
markup to get things working, so it looks like using flash.php direct 
isn't going to work after all. You could use the format you have, but 
from reading, it looks like this might be slightly more reliable:
<iframe align=center 
frameBorder=0 width=500 scrolling=no height=500></iframe>

You could use one of the other alternate flash markups on the PmWiki 
page as a starting point to creating a Flickr slideshow cookbook, or 
simply add your new flash-type to swf-sites.php.
