<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="videos/hdsd mov.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><param name="LOOP" value="false"><embed src="videos/hdsd mov.swf" width="550" height="400" loop="false" align="middle" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="[URL]http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer[/URL]" />
</object>

What this does is uses one script for embedding the swf for one type of browser, and in the <noscript> section which would be activated is another script, for the alternative browsers. Just edit in your own preferences, and it should work. Hope this hepls!!

Validation (XHTML 1.0 Transitional): Element 'embed' is not supported.
