View Full Version : Slideshow start delay

I have some photobucket slideshows on my myspace page...

myspace.com/mc68hc11a1p
(http://myspace.com/mc68hc11a1p)

Everything works fine in firefox, but not in IE. Apparently IE is a resource hog and has trouble loading some slideshows if you have too many on your page. Usually when you view the page in IE only one or two of the slideshows will actually load, the others will just show up blank or as errors in the page.

Is there some code that I can add that will delay the start of these slideshows to give IE a little "time to breathe"? I was thinking that if I gave the page a chance to load first, then had the slideshows start sequentially a second or two later, it might work a little better.

Here's a sample of the code from one of the slideshows that I use on my page...

<div style="width:600px; text-align: center;"><object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="never" allowNetworking="internal" height="180" width="600" data="http://w86.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w86.photobucket.com/albums/k92/mc68hc11a1p/Pink Floyd/1165168575.pbw">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never" />
<param name="allowNetworking" value="internal" />
<param name="movie" value="http://w86.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w86.photobucket.com/albums/k92/mc68hc11a1p/Pink Floyd/1165168575.pbw" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
</object>..</div>
