Thread: Flash video causing rest of HTML page not to load.

    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
