Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Flash video causing rest of HTML page not to load.

    I have Flash video on a front page of a website.
    I think there's a definite bug.
    Not sure what the cause of the problem is, but I think I've at sussed out what the problem is.

    The front page, apart from the Flash video, is just GIF's and text.
    The webpage loads up.
    Some of the graphics get loaded... but then it stops.
    The video loads and starts streaming and playing.

    It seems as though the video hogs ALL of the download bandwidth.
    This means that the rest of the graphics doesn't get loaded: until the video has finished downloading.

    What is my solution?
    Use Javascript to load the Flash video last?
    If so... how??

    Any help would be appreciated.

    dont know what the problem would be ... usually everything should download together. I've never had that problem even w/ streaming video. But if you wanna try a javascript fix try this:
    HTML Code:
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    function loadFlash(){
     var p=document.getElementById('flashDiv');
     p.innerHTML='<object ... </object>';
    Then you would need a div with id "flashDiv"
    PHP Code:
    <zip> echo this; </zip
