Summary: embedding media from grooveshark won'd work
Original Request:
I'm attempting to embed a little media clip (song) from grooveshark- I paste the embed code using the lj embed function because the html code contains the object coding, but I still can't get it to show up correctly. perhaps I can show you an example-
<object width="250" height="40" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="gsSong2945227962" name="gsSong2945227962"><param name="movie" value="http://grooveshark.com/songWidget.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="window" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="flashvars" value="hostname=cowbell.grooveshark.com&songIDs=29452279&style=metal&p=0" /><object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://grooveshark.com/songWidget.swf" width="250" height="40"><param name="wmode" value="window" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="flashvars" value="hostname=cowbell.grooveshark.com&songIDs=29452279&style=metal&p=0" /><span>Oh Beautiful Town by <a href="http://grooveshark.com/artist/IAMX/405279" title="IAMX">IAMX</a> on Grooveshark</span></object></object>

LiveJournal strips certain scripting and embedding tags from user's content for security reasons, as detailed in the FAQ linked above. If the Grooveshark widget contains these tags, the widget will not show up in any LiveJournal entries.

It's possible that Grooveshark offers widgets with alternative codes that are permitted on LiveJournal. Please contact Grooveshark's support department to find out if this is the case, and how to access any widgets of this type that they might offer.
