To load other xml file than default gallery.xml use extra parameter when embeding flash.

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7" width="600" height="400">

To make transparent background use wmode=transparent parameter:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7" width="600" height="400">

</object>

Important: if you are using javascript to activate flash, like one that comes with dreamweaver AC_RunActiveContent.js, then you need to add extra variables there as well.

AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7', 'width', '600', 'height', '400', 'src', 'veppa_photo_album2?xml=gallery_x.xml', 'quality', 'high', 'pluginspage', 'http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash', 'wmode', 'transparent', 'movie', 'veppa_photo_album2?xml=gallery_x.xml' );
