View Full Version : no preloading of video while opening the website

04-02-2007, 10:25 AM
Hi there,

I'm a newbie here and have a question about embedding a flash
video in my website. I was looking for a thread here but could not
find anything. So I hope it's not off topic!

I used the Flowplayer (http://flowplayer.sourceforge.net) to embed a video in my website. So far so good. BUT, whenever I open the site, the video is preloaded in the background (stored in IE6 cache) even though autostart is off. I have experienced that with a quicktime player plugin as well!

Is there a chance that the video is NOT loaded until I start the video?
The preloading of the video reduces the speed of the site finally!

Any help would be nice. Thanks in advance!

the code I included:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="FlowPlayer.swf"
width="320" height="264" id="FlowPlayer">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="FlowPlayer.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="scale" value="noScale" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<param name="flashvars" value="configFileName=flowPlayer.js" />
</object> <br>
