Unhappy Adding movement to site banner

What is the best way to add movement to a site banner?

I've downloaded an animated file from istockphoto, but it's a Quicktime file. I've tried to create a Flash file from this using Flash CS3, but when I publish it, it's not showing on the page.

I've uploaded the .swf file, .flv file, .fla file and the javascript file created by Flash. It shows when I test the page, but it simply doesn't show after I put the file onto my webserver.

I now seem to have the Flash animation showing up on the site, but have discovered that the house image is too small for my needs (which I can obviously fix by getting a larger version) and more importantly can't figure out how to either (a) make the background of the Flash animation transparent or (b) push it behind the red strip that it is lying on top of. Any ideas anyone?

The page I am talking about is here.

Ok, I think I have the size/layer issue sorted now ... edited the file size in Flash.

Next thing I can't work out is how to make the Flash on a continual loop so that the house keeps jumping over and over and over whilever someone is on the webpage. I would really appreciated any help!!!

Hello


So what do you want to do with the loop?

If you could advise i then may be able to help you with the flash side of things.

Basically I want it to just continue looping over and over and over again, so that the little house in the Flash keeps jumping and jumping and jumping and jumping.
