Issues hosting Captivate swf files on Confluence 3.5.1

Am able to play Captivate swf files on a Confluence page, but without the video controls.

Captivate creates the controls in a separate swf file, along with a couple of html files that put everything together and launch the video in a browser window.

Can someone kindly advise how to set this up in Confluence?

Ideally, I would have visitors click a link in Confluence, and open the video in a full screen, replicating the experience of clicking on the swf executable which Captivate can also create. (Alas, if you host the .exe on a Confluence page you are only allowed to download, not play, the file, doubtless for valid security reasons.)

Thanks for any assistance!

Did you ever find a work around for this problem? I'm having the same problem with Confluence 4.3.
