 <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/p/PlaylistID"></param>
 <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
 <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
 <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/p/PlaylistID" width="560" height="315"
 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"
