Flash plays before html page is completely loaded

A flash intro for a website's homepage starts to play before
the html page
elements are completely loaded and visible. The html page is
not
complicated so it would seem the flash is even slowing down
the loading of
the html and it looks bad, but not terrible. Is there a way
to, like,
prioritize the loading of the page elements?

Sorry, I didn't design the HTML page but I'm sure it was
tested in a few
different browsers. I'm not sure if it happened on all or
some. The sites
already live so the designer did not think it was a problem.
Just thought
there may be a stacking order or something that would load
the background
before the Flash starts playing. Thanks for your help.

  • How to show a MPEG4/H.264 video in Flash in an HTML page?

    Maybe my title isn't clear. I am hoping someone can shed some
    light on the h264 use in flash.
    Instead of displaying a progressive download .FLV video , I
    am trying to have an MPEG4 /h.264 approx. - a 30meg video display
    in flash in an .html page. Quicktime is easy to do, but Flash is my
    goal.
    I read several articles on h264 and flash 9, including this
    adobe
    H264 article but was hoping there might be an easier and maybe
    quicker solution. I did try renaming the .mp4 extension to .flv in
    dreamweaver but it did not display the video. (...unless it was
    downloading the video completely before displaying...not sure)
    There is a ton of sites, blogs and articles on h.264 and how
    flash 9 will display it...but when it comes to how one might
    actually have h.264 in flash on their own site...I am finding it
    difficult to figure out.
    Forgive my lack of action script and Flash knowledge...any
    direction is appreciated.
    Erick

    ...well I did follow that article on playing an h264/mpeg4
    video in flash. It works well, but how would you add playback
    controls?
    FLVPlayback component only allows you to source an FLV video
    not h264/mpeg4.
    This is probably a simple as3 answer...but I am not
    knowledgeable on as3 to know what code to add.
    Any suggests or direction that I should look would be great.
    In the meantime I am researching actionscript 3 to find and anwer.

  • Long Delay Before Web Pages Start to Load, Then Load Suddenly Normally

    I've been experiencing some problems with my internet connection here for the past couple of days.
    This article from Apple support sums the problem up as far as I can tell: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106799
    "This document discusses two causes of a situation in which a delay occurs before Web pages begin to load, followed suddenly by page loading at normal speed. The same delay may also be noticed for TCP/IP applications other than Web browsers."
    However, their solution does not work. My DNS Servers box is empty as I have no DNS server to put in there (should I? I don't recall ever having anything there). The article is lacking in the fact that it doesn't explain what we should do if we don't have anything in that box (or we don't know what to put).
    I did not change any settings before this started happening. The only thing I did was install Opera. I tried uninstalling Opera and the problem didn't go away. It happens on Opera, Firefox, and Safari. I can't for the life of me figure this out. I have even re-flashed my router firmware just to see if that was the problem, and nothing.
    Any help would be nice. Thanks!

    Okay, a guess...
    The page only contains some JavaScript.
    I don't think the page is meant for people to view - here's the code from the page...
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>FOXNews.com</title>
    <script language="JavaScript">if(typeof(parent.prInst)=='undefined'){var prInst=1}else{prInst=parent.prInst+1} for(i=0;i<parent.frames.length;i+){if(parent.frames.title=='prif'){prInst+}}this.title='prif';var prs="http://ads.PointRoll.com/PRServe/?pos=s&num="prInst+"&"location.search.substring(1)"&r="+Math.random();document.write('<scr''ipt language="JavaScript" src="'prs+'"></scr''ipt>');</script>

  • Calling a function in flash on an HTML page

    Hi,
    I need help regarding how to call a flash function from an HTML page. The idea is to have a link on my page (HTML link) that once clicked displays a movieclip in flash. I know i have to use the asfunction in HTML. So far I have just created my swf file with a function called showInfo. I've embedded the flash into an HTML page. I have then added a link on the HTML page as follows:
    <a href="asfunction:showInfo">Link name</a>
    but when I click it says:
    "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (asfunction) isn't associated with any program."
    is there a piece of code I need to write in flash for this to work?
    Thanks
    Eugene

    have your html link call a javascript function and use the externalinterface class in flash to communicate between javascript and actionscript.

  • How to detect that ADF page has completely loaded with OpenScript

    In Selenium tests I use AdfPage.isSynchronizedWithServer to detect whether an ADF page has completely loaded. I attempted to do the same with OpenScript by doing something like:
    boolean loading = true;
    while (loading) {
    String[] result = web.document("/web:window[@title='*']/web:document[@index='0']").executeJsFunction("AdfPage.PAGE.isSynchronizedWithServer()", null);
    if (null != result && result.length > 0 && "true".equalsIgnoreCase(result[0])) {
    loading = false;
    } else {
    think(5.0);
    unfortunately this fails with
    ERROR [1] Error in section Run at line unknown. An unexpected exception occurred in the script. Script section: Run. Caused by: Exception occured.
    java.lang.Exception:
        at oracle.oats.scripting.modules.webdom.api.elements.DOMDocument.executeJsFunction(DOMDocument.java:1043)
    Anyone know how to call ADF JS from OpenScript or alternatively what is the recommended way to make sure that the ADF page has loaded completely ?

  • Uploading Flash Intro to play before home page in Dreamweaver

    I'm new to Flash CS3. I'm trying to figure out how to make my
    flash intro to my website play before it takes me to my home page
    in Dreamweaver. In other words, the flash intro plays and then
    automatically goes to my designated home page.The intro is the
    first thing you see. Do I set that up in Flash or Dreamweaver?
    Detailed instructions needed.
    thanks

    Hi!
    Basically, you have to do that in Flash. A possible way to go
    is this: you´ve got two pages, say "index.html" and
    "pageB.html". "index.html" of course is the first page any browser
    would read. Here you´ve embedded your Flash-Intro. Now, after
    your intro´s been played, you want the browser to switch
    automatically to "pageB.html", which is your actual home page, the
    actual first one, as if it were. No problem! Go to the last frame
    in your Flash animation (authoring environment), press the F9-key
    (in order to open action script), switch to expert modus and type
    this:
    getURL("pageB.html","_self");
    Now, "pageB.html" should be replaced by the correct name of
    the page, and you might have to type a complete path so the proper
    page can be found (something like "myPage/homePage.html" or
    whatever, depending on how it is structured). You could experience
    some trouble here, but keep on it!
    The instruction "_self" lets the browser open the new page
    (your home page) in the same window, which is hopefully what you
    want. If you want a new window, type "_blank" instead.
    Hope I could help you!

  • Flash not playing on html page after template is altered

    Hi,
    Can anyone help. If i alter anything on a template none of the .swf files on pages based on that template will work when previewed in the browser.
    I am using DW CS3.
    Anyone any ideas

    Good day,
    This issue can be considered as a limitation at some point because Dreamweaver lacked the ability to "auto-update", although it was not really the best practice to include Flash contents in a DW template.
    There is a workaround though. You may need to edit the template (.dwt) itself and work in Code View.
    While in Code View, use the Find and Replace (Edit > Find and Replace) feature so it will be easier for you to find what you are looking for.
    In the Find and Replace window, choose Current Document as value for Find in, and Source Code as Search.
    In the Find input field, type --> 'src' (including the single quotes) and click on Find Next.
    Once you found 'src', pay attention to the text next to it enclosed in single quotes. The value in the single quotes is the path of where the Flash file is saved. try to remove ../ if you happen to see it. (do this if the Flash file is located in the same folder where the HTML page which uses it is saved)
    Using Find and Replace again, this time, try to search for 'movie' (including single quotes). You'll see again the text next to it which is the same value as what you have searched before. Do the same thing, try removing ../. (do this if the Flash file is located in the same folder where the HTML page which uses it is saved)
    Save the DW template file and try to preview the pages again in the browser.
    I hope this helps.

  • How to wait until html page is completely rendered

    I use a JEditorPane to display HTML and i want to print it to an image. so i tried to load the page (JEditorPane.setPage(URL url)) and wait until the property "page" is fired. Then i printed the component to an image.
    My problem is that the page wasn't completely loaded (rendered?) when i tried to print it.
    Is there a way to be notified when the page is completely rendered?
    thx in advance
    ~elchaschab

    However, you might consider setting the document property for it to be
    loaded synchronously.i've already used my own HTMLEditorKit for synchronous document loading.
    class MyHTMLEditorKit
    extends HTMLEditorKit
    public Document createDefaultDocument()
    Document doc = super.createDefaultDocument();
    ((HTMLDocument)doc).setAsynchronousLoadPriority( -1);
    return doc;
    You probably already played around with calling repaint() and
    validate() before printing.i tried to call repaint and validate before printing but
    still it doen't work. :(
    As a last resort, you could experiment with calling the printing
    routine written as a thread passed to invokeLater(), although there is
    no obvious reason why this would make a difference. i don't understand what i should do with invokeLater().
    could you please give me a short example?
    thx,

  • Video playing on HTML page without player?

    I have seen a few examples (none of which I have a link for)
    of flash
    video that plays on a HTML page that is not confined to a
    flash player.
    So the video of a person is shot against a green screen and
    the
    background is later keyed out and the the video plays on the
    page.
    Does anyone know how this is done?

  • Can't get FLV to play in HTML page...

    Hi,
    I dragged the FLVPlayback to the stage and set the source to my FLV file name and set the skin to one of the options.
    My HTML page calls upon the published SWF file. Do I need to name the additional SWF file to the same name as my skin?
    How do you publish the skin file also?
    I'm thinking this issue lies with the dimensions of the movie. The FLV says it is 640 x 480. So I went in and modified the Flash document to the same.
    Do I need to use the Transform tool and make the actual player to these proportions so it fills the stage? - here is where the confusion lies...or is it 'smart' enough to conform. My settings are the default of 'maintain aspect ratio'.
    Please help!
    Thank you.

    As mentioned earlier, most likely a pathing problem... but just a slight correction. If you just cannot figure out the pathing issue, put all your files in the same folder as the WEB PAGE, not the .fla, since you don't need to upload that file anyway.
    But, to dispell the myth that all the files need to be in the same directory... just not true. You can put your Flash related stuff in whatever folders you want as long as you realize that once you place your Flash .swf on a Web page, you are in effect, removing that .swf from it's physical location and moving it to the same folder as the Web page. So all files called by that .swf (skins, videos, xml) must be called relative to the Web page location, NOT the physical location of the .swf.
    From an old post:
    Pathing issues
    Almost always when it works on the local machine and not the server, it's a pathing problem.
    You can put your Flash related files in whatever folders you want, they do not have to be in the root. But if sticking them in there worked, then you know that the issue was a pathing problem.
    Just remember that paths become relative to the Web page on which those Flash files are used. So for example, if your .swf is in the flash/data folder and you use that .swf on a Web page in the root, you are in effect, removing that .swf from flash/data and putting it in root. So if the .swf is loading any related files (xml, etc), the path used inside the .swf to the .xml file has to be relative to it's new location in root and back down into flash/data. This is true even though when testing the .swf by itself, it can be inside flash/data and work just fine, since relative to it's location, the path is just fine, they are in the same folder. But if that same path is used when the .swf is placed on a page two folder levels up, the relative path has changed, the old "same folder" path will not work.
    So just be sure that you use addresses relative to the final locations and you can put the files wherever you want.

  • How to embed Flash Player into HTML page

    Hello,
    I have a question for some gurus who know very well the
    Javascript.
    Namelly what i want is to add <object> tag to the
    current html page programatically with using JAVA SCRIPT.
    As IE is more forgiving it displays the object properly but,
    in Firefox it behaves a bit different. Actually it doesn't appear
    at all in Mozilla browser. Any good sample would be great help.
    I was wondering what i am doing wrong?
    Thanks :)

    thanks.
    i am giving my problem clearly. i have one applet. Previously i am loading the applet in my html page using object tag like this...
    <OBJECT
    classid="clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" WIDTH="1000" HEIGHT="300" NAME="grid">
    <PARAM NAME="CODE" VALUE="com.adp.base.applet.PriceGrid.class" >
         <PARAM NAME="ARCHIVE" VALUE="common.jar,classes12.jar,toplink.jar" >
         <PARAM NAME="NAME" VALUE="grid" >
    <PARAM NAME="type" VALUE="application/x-java-applet">
    <PARAM NAME= "cache_option" VALUE ="no">
    </OBJECT>
    now what i need to do is
    i need load the applet only first time using web start and when ever the applet code changes in the server i need to reload the applet.
    for that i kept all the applet resources in .jnlp file.i want to cache all the resources which are in .jnlp file and applet must be displayed within a web page within a browser.
    Webstart always open a new application windows.
    I need to run an Applet embedded within a web page within a browser.
    Is there a way to still use Webstart?

  • Page never completely loads (busy circle)

    In Firefox the green busy circle (in the upper tab) stays in an endless loop indicating that it's trying to load something. Is this "normal"?  Perhpas it does this when there are audio clips that are set to not autoplay? I ran a site report. No errors found. Could it be something to do with the fact that I have java script references in the head and body?  If nobody can find any obvious errors then
    <!doctype html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <link href="ttt-css.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

    <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico” type=”image/x-icon” />
    </head>
    <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    swfobject.registerObject("FLVPlayer");
    </script>

    This is the site ( http://www.junkyardwillie.com/ )
    http://www.junkyardwillie.com/Scripts/
    http://www.junkyardwillie.com/ttt-css.css

    You do have a bunch of errors, including unclosed tags (visit the validator: http://validator.w3.org/ for a list of them), but I doubt that has much, if anything, to do with the continuous loading.
    That has more to do with the number and size of the files the page is loading.
    It does stop, after all of the audio and video files are finally downloaded.
    Keep in mind, a single 3.39MB MP3 (which you have several of on the page) will take about 16 minutes to download on an average 56k modem connection of 3.5k/second. With 5-6 of those plus a video loading in the background, it takes a couple minutes to stop loading on my highspeed connection. Anyone using less than a cable connection is going to notice a long load time.
    EDIT: It would load much faster if you gave the user a link to the audio files for download. You could also put the players in their own page and used an iframe that loads that page when the user clicks a link to hear the audio from the main page. The overall load time would be the same, if they click on each audio link, but if they don't, the page would finish loading more quickly than it does now.

  • Flash image and html pages
