I have a problem embedding a swf in my website.
The swf is a dynamic image gallery, and fetches the images with an xml file.
I tried using relative and absolute paths, but I am still unable to load the swf.
Can someone please help me?
This is the site:

And this is the code I used to embed the file:

Iam not sure if this is the absolute path, since I am redirected to another site, when I open the file manager.
I am using 000webhost.
Thanks in advance.

What I have tried:

<pre><script type="text/javascript" src="/public_html/swfs/logros/test/swfobject.js"></script> <div id="flashcontent"> This text is replaced by the Flash movie. </div> <script type="text/javascript"> 
var so = new SWFObject("", "Gallery", "1024", "768", "8", "#336699"); so.write("flashcontent"); </script>

I just tried the absolute path you gave me in the previous comment, but that didn't work. I know flash is a dead technology, but I have a nice image gallery, that I would like to use with my website. Please let me know if there is something else I can try.

I fixed the swf part, now the problem is that the images that should load from xml are not loading. I used /public_html/swfs/logros/test/images/Logros 2016-2017/GL10_1.jpg, as the path for one of the images, but I don't know what path should I use.
Can someone please help me out, and let me know which would be the full path, that I should use.

I also tried using this code in xml, but still nothing:

I fixed the problem I ws having. I just have one more issue. The flash image gallery displays just fine in firefox, but it doesn't display in edge or chrome, any ideas why?

Because Flash is dead, as Graeme already mentioned. It's either not installed or not enabled in those browsers.

The Flash player will no longer be distributed or updated from the end of next year:

Firefox will disable Flash by default this year, and remove support completely next year:

Chrome will disable Flash by default from July, and remove support completely next December:

Edge will do the same:
