Embedded SWF flashes white before it loads.

I have an SWF embedded in a table. When it loads in the
browser the SWF briefly flashes white before the preloader begins
to load. I have set the color properties in both the SWF file and
in the table cell. Is there a way to change the color from white to
another color?

Thanks for your help, but I already figured it out. Here is
the code:
classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="
width="79" height="427">
<param name="movie" value="assets/swf/thmbs.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<embed src="assets/swf/thmbs.swf" width="79" height="427"
quality="high" pluginspage="
I had to add a "bgcolor" to the "embed" tag. Note, for some
reason this will overwrite the background color that is set in the
SWF in Firefox.
Thanks again!
Thanks again!

  • Safari flashes white boxes when loading pictures or video, distorts text

    I have Safari 3.1.2 and a lot of times when I look at a photo on a flickr page, when the photo loads it flashes these annoying white boxes everywhere. And when I watch a youtube video it will flash white sections on them. Also, when I'm scrolling through an article, the lines will double up and distort. If I restart my computer it will adjust to normal, but the after a while it will start up again. I've singled the problem down to Safari because Firefox does not have this problem. I guess I could just use Firefox and say sayonara to Safari? Any advice?

    I have exactly the same problem with browsers, iPhoto, and also text breaking up when scrolling up and down (in Mail, for instance). I also have a Macbook Pro (15", 2,4ghz, GeForce 8600M graphics).
    I have heard about people taking the unit back to Apple and having the graphics card replaced, and some people talk about it being a video driver issue, but this has been going on for me since at least 10.5.2 (that's when I first noticed it as a problem) and if it's a software problem it's taking a long time to fix it!

  • Embedding swf in container on page load

    I'm trying to figure out what the AS3 script is to have a swf embedded inside of a container, little new to AS3. any help? Thanks.

    There is nothing wrong with that code unless you have some object on the stage with the instance name "sliderCont" that you are expecting to have the swf load into.  The code creates a loader instance named "sliderCont" and loads an swf into it, and then adds that loader to the display list.
    If "sliderCont" is some other object, then you need to pick a different name for your loader and then add the loader as a child of that.
    var ldr:Loader = new Loader();
    ldr.load(new URLRequest("flash-xml3.swf"));

  • A flash of white before animation plays on iPad in Adobe Content Viewer

    Hi Everyone, I'm creating Edge animations and importing the .OAM files into my layout in InDesign CS6 for the Mac, then using the Digital Publishing Suite to publish to iPads.
    On an InDesign page where I have solid color background, the frame where I have the .OAM file placed in always flashes white before it animates. I've colored the background of the Edge file, I've placed a PNG that has that color as a background in Edge, I've colored the background in InDesign, and I've given that graphic box the .OAM is placed in a color. The little spinning wheel I can live with, but the flash of white looks like I did somethign wrong. Is there a workaround?

    Hi, I haven't implemented this myself yet but came across it in Apple's support documentation, complete page here http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5068
    This bit specifically:
    About opening the HTML widget
    Depending on how complicated your HTML Dashboard widget is, your readers may experience a flash during HTML initialization when they open the widget in iBooks. To avoid this flash, modify your Dashboard widget so it tells iBooks when to switch from displaying the Default.png file to displaying the running HTML widget.
    Make these three modifications to add this optional feature:
    Add a IBNotifiesOnReady item set to true in the Dashboard widget's info.plist file, so iBooks knows this Dashboard widget will tell it when to switch to displaying the running HTML widget:
    Set your Dashboard widget to load the Apple javascript library:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="AppleClasses/AppleWidget.js"> </script>
    Set your Dashboard widget to let iBooks know when the HTML initialization begins, and iBooks can switch from showing the Default.png file to displaying the running HTML widget by calling (in javascript):
    Important: If you choose to modify your Dashboard widget to avoid the flash, be sure to do all three of the above steps. You must compete all of the steps for this to function properly.
    I hope it fixes your problem!

  • Composition flashes white when loading

    Does anyone know why my edge project flashes white when its loading?
    I'm using the most up-to-date version of Edge Animate but it did this in previous versions so I don't think its got anything to do with the version of Edge I have.
    Also I've hidden the preloader and turned the stage colour to transparent.
    Does anyone have any ideas I can try out?

    Can you post a url for others to test/troubleshoot?

  • Cannot see embedded swf's in html

    When creating my flash file, i load swf files into loaders on my stage. When testing it, it works fine, but when publishing it to the web, it dosn't show the embedded swf's?

    I'm assuming you intend that the embedded swf is the one that loads the other swfs... the one that is coded into the html page, not the ones that are loaded into loaders.  Did you upload the AC_RunActiveContent.js file that Flash creates?

  • Page Flashes Yellow when Page Loads

    Hi, I actually have a web guy doing a site for a client of
    mine, but when the site loads, the whole background flashes bright
    yellow and subsequently each page flashes yellow before it loads as
    well, but only once. Web guy took out the SWF animations I sent him
    and the flashing stopped. I've given SWF animations to other web
    designers and this hasn't happened. Would someone be kind enough to
    look at the site and let me know if they have any ideas. It's still
    a work in progress. Here's the link:

    In the site CSS, there is this:
    body {
    background-color: #FFFF00; /**this is yellow**/
    Change it to dark blue.
    Also, that page has some html errors including 2
    </body> </body> tags at the
    end of the document. Only one end of body tag is required.

  • WAD: Problems when exporting to PDF with embedded .swf

    I'm using Web Application Designer (WAD) 7 and have created a template with an "Export to PDF" button and an embedded .swf flash file which is an Xcelsius dashboard.
    What i'm trying to do is show the information I want on my dashboard and then export that to a PDF to email out to multiple users who would be interested in the data each month.  If exporting to PDF isn't the best route to get a snapshot of this dashboard out to other users and there's an easier way please let me know, but here are the issues i'm having:
    1) When I have the dashboard showing the information I want and click the "Export to PDF" button, the dashboard reloads as the PDF settings window pops up and gets reset back to it's initial state.
    2)  If I ignore problem #1 and click on 'OK' in the Export dialog anyway after selecting PDF settings, my Adobe Reader pops up but then shows a message saying "The file cannot be opened because it has no pages".  Basically it doesn't see the .swf as being a component to take a snapshot of and print on a PDF. I did try adding a text component just so there was something on the template and I then get a PDF with that text component showing and no .swf snapshot.
    Has anyone come up with a workaround for this?  I've tried using the BEx Broadcaster with the 'Send' option but get the same results in regards to the blank page.
    Thanks as always for the help!

    Thanks for the reply.
    The dashboard is connected to a query in NetWeaver BI to get its data.  So the request of the user is to be able to adjust the dashboard to show the information they need (well say of a certain region) and then take a snapshot of that and email it out to co-workers in Group A.  Then the user will adjust the dashboard to show other data (for a different region we'll say) and take a snapshot to email out to co-workers in Group B. etc and etc.
    I have looked into installing a PDFCreator print driver but that wouldn't be feasible to get it on all machines in the business.  I've also looked into getting it as a .jpeg which would suffice, but am unsure if there is a way to do it with script and connect that to the dashboard when a button is pushed (will look into this).  This seems like a topic for over in the Xcelsius forum now.
    I used the following code within the <body></body> tags of the WAD's xhtml to embed the .swf:
    <object id="dashboard" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" height="600" width="800" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" >

  • Stage flashes white just before images load

    Hello Forum members,
    I have a strange problem. I have developed a Flash slideshow that loads 6 images from the web server using an xml loader (the image names are in an
    xml file), then loads these images into an array.  I have an xmlloader to read the xml file, and a Loader that loads the images from the array,
    and then changes the images every 4 secs or so.
    My problem is that when the web page is opened from a client, the space where the flash object is located (in a table)
    flashes white until the images are loaded.  I thought I could fix the problem by making the stage the same color as
    the background on the web page. No dice, I still see a white box (800x320 px) that is the size of the stage, and the size of
    the images.
    When I compile it on my computer, if I look fast I can see a quick flash of white just before the images load!
    The web site is: www.andiamoadventours.com.  I did not develop the page, but put the Flash code in the index.html page.
    There is quite a lot of javascript on this page, maybe developed in Dreamweaver.
    Any ideas on this?  I can attach the action script code if desired, for more clarification.  Let me know on this.
    Basically, the images reside in a folder on the web server, the xml file has the image names, the xml loader reads the xml file,
    and when it is complete, goes to a routine that takes the name of the image from an xml list I create, and then loads an array.
    I load the image into the loader, etc.  This is clearer with the code.  I am using CS4 and a document class, slides.as.

    Hello dmennenoh
    I replaced the old code with the swf object, and added a background color to the embedded definitions,
    This solved the problem!
    Thanks, I will keep this in my memory

  • Navigate to url is producting a white flash before url loads

    I wonder is someone can help me.  I have placed  brief swf in an html page.  There is a simple enter button which should load the next html page.  I have used:
    var link:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.adobe.com");
    button_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onClick);
    function onClick(event:MouseEvent):void
    button_mc.buttonMode = true;
    however there is a white flash screen before the url opens
    How can I avoid this.

    Maybe it is only because the HTML background of the new page is white, so it shows before the swf is actualy begining to be in the page.
    But a link to what you are doing would be helpful.

  • White flash before iFrame loads?

    Hi all,
    My site all worked good (nataimages.com) in Safari 3 but with Safari 4 I started getting this white flash in my portfolio page before iframe loads. It looks ugly. I started looking for the fix and I found out that it's something called FOUC (flash of unstyled content) and can't fix it.
    Does anyone know the fix for it?

  • White box of death! Trouble embedding swf into Dreamweaver!

    So close to being finished! I notice this question on alot of other forums but its never resolved!
    here is the site now:
    you will notice a slight flash of a white box before the preloader starts, i'm trying everything to make it go away! this box seems to be the same size as my embedded swf. the site and preloader are all in one swf. all i need to do is make that white box the same color as the background so it is unnoticeable.
    here is the code from dreamweaver (you'll notice im sticking in color values wherever i can!)

  • Cap 2 - Embedded SWFs not loading

    Hey everyone...
    I'm building Captivate tutorials using Cap 2. As part of
    these, I'm creating separate simulations in Captivate, publishing
    them, then dropping the SWFs into slides on my larger project.
    So, the problem I'm having is that when I'm progressing
    through the larger Captivate module, I'll get to a slide that
    begins with one of the swf animations, and the slide audio will
    begin and the slide progresses, but the embedded swf is still
    loading. So, what happens is by the time the swf finally loads, my
    main timeline has moved almost completely past the animation...so
    basically, it screws everything up.
    I've tried using a preloader for the whole project, set to
    100% and that didn't fix the problem, which leads me to believe
    that the animations aren't actually loaded in that preloading
    I've tried synchronizing the animation with the project...no
    luck there. I've made sure that the embedded animations don't have
    preloading of their own. Nothing seems to work.
    Ideally everything would load up in the initial preloading,
    but I'd settle for having each slide wait until the contents are
    completely loaded before beginning.
    Any suggestions anyone might have would be greatly

    So I figured out a workaround for this issue, if anyone is
    I republished the Cap projects I was imbedding into the
    larger project in Flash 8 format, and published the larger project
    in Flash 7 format. Doing so causes the larger Cap project to
    publish the Flash 8 swfs along with the rest of the published
    files, and then calls to those files instead of trying to imbed the
    swfs within the larger project. Works like a charm.

  • Dreamweaver embedded flash content will not load in IE7

    My company standard is IE7
    I'm charged with developing flv that will auto play on PC from a removable thumb drive.
    in addition it should be able to launch a url.
    I'm using CS4 Flash and Dreamweaver
    developing on a Mac.
    I've used action script 3 to program buttons that start, stop and launch url
    I've worked everything out on a Mac.it works fine in Mac environment.
    I've gotten swf files to autoplay on PC
    the PROBLEM?
    when I try load the html web page on the PC with IE7 the flash content (either a swf or flv embedded using Dreamweaver) does not load.
    IF I leave the IE specific html in the code IE7 returns a message that flash player needs to update. - IT has installed the latest version of flash player.
    if I extract the sniffer/alternative code the flash content does not load there is no message
    If the swf file auto loads and plays then Why is that a problem?
    action script -  to launch url execution launches as a security warning and the trusted settings window
    not very seamless eh?
    so the alternative is to play the flash content embedded in html and create launch url button in html . . . but ofcourse flash content won't load in IE7.
    I've not been able to test the code on any other version of IE
    I hope this is enough information to help if not let me know what you need to know . . .
    thanks in advance for any time you all spend on this.

    So right now you have a SWF file that plays and FLV file and it's not loading in IE7.  Is the testing server that you are using NOT on your local machine?  The reason I ask this is because IE will typically block content if it is hosted on the local machine and treat it as a security risk, prompting the message you refer to.
    Also would it be possible for us to see the code you are using for the plugin?  Most users here will be able to help troubleshoot any issues with the HTML code if we can see it, however, there is a possibility that the fix may be in Flash, in which case you should cross-post this in the Flash forum as well for assistance just in case.
