I am building a website which contains a banner made in flash (.SWF)
This banner should continue playing after navigating to another page within this website.
It looks like i have to use cookies, but i just cannot get it to work.
Maybe sharedObjects can do the trick as well?

Can anybody help me out? Or at least give me a head start?

Underneath here i posted my header.php with the banner.swf embedded.
I include the header.php in my index.php
