Problem Playing Fash Movies in Rails app and IE

Has anyone experienced problems with playing flash movies (swf's) in IE whose links appear in views? We're looking for a solution to this.

If we put a flash movie in the directory public/fla (under RAILS_ROOT), and use a links such as:

<embed src="/fla/HP_03.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="753" height="193" name="HP_03" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="; />

from inside a view, the movie won't play in IE. It plays in Firefox, etc., we've tested this on several different machines using IE and non- IE browsers with the same result.

Note that we are using the src atrribute: src="/fla/HP_03.swf" - is that correct, or is there a problem in the way we are specifying the src attribute here? Or are we looking at the wrong place all together in trying to solve this problem?

The above works fine if the page with the embed link is a static page, but when the link appears in a view, the swf doesn't appear from within IE (only).
