I'm trying to extract something like this:

<object classid=clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000
codebase=",0,19,0" width=640 height=400>
<param name=movie value=url>
<param name=quality value=high><param name=SCALE value=showall>
<embed src=url quality=highpluginspage=
getflashplayer type=application/x-shockwave-flash width=640 height=400
bgcolor=#000000 scale= showall>

I don't know how I can get the param

# below don't work
    for test in soup.fetch('object'):
        print test # nothing

# nothing
print soup.findAll('param',{'name':'movie'})

# nothing
print soup.findAll('object')

Is it possible with BeautifulSoup to extract the object tag with his
child param ?
I have made everything in BeautifulSoup so I hope its possible :S

Thanks anyway,
