    since your server runs php, chances are that the server already supports Ming or swflib. Both could be used to convert jpeg on the fly into swf.
    So you would actually do a loadmovie('swfimage.php?image=my_cat.jpg'
    and php would respond with a swf movie
    There are other ways to do the conversion (at least one with a hefty price tag) and in any case you would have to convince the server admin to install stuff. If ming is not yet available, suggest to upgrade to php 4.0.5
