    Code:
    <fb:swf 
    swfsrc="xxxxxxx.swf"
    imgsrc="xxxxxxx.jpg" 
       width='300' height='250' />
    This isn't working for me, any ideas how to get a simple flash file to be embedded into a fanpage fbml box?

    Dude, DO NOT post FBML codes here on the forum. It is against the rules!

    There's no problem posting examples that are in the developer's wiki, which this is:

    Code:
    http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Fb:swf
    It's only the custom, non-compliant codes that should be kept private. :)

    Well, you do know FB was recently having issues with allowing people to add apps to their fan pages, right? This has since been fixed, but it may have been causing your problem (maybe not though). My suggestion is that you read up on FB's Developer section.

    If I had any experience with this I would help you out free of charge; however, I do not. You might want to consider posting a cheap project on Rent A Coder since you already have the code and all you need to do is get it working.
