    If you don’t have administrative access to set the permissive flag, I discovered with some experimentation that if you rename the swf file with a supported file type extention like jpg, Office 365 will serve the file to the browser so that the flash player will play it. The flash player doesn’t seem to care what the extension is.

    I suggest you keep “swf” somewhere in the filename. I.e. rename movie.swf to movie_swf.jpg so that you know what it really is.
