    weird bug in my animation, only happens when playing in Chrome browser? How do I debug this?

      Hey all,


      I have an animation / swf file I have created in flash, when I export the swf and test it in flash it's fine.
      And when I run the webpage that contains the swf in Google Chrome browser I get like a white box that just pops up on the screen for a few seconds on the first loop of the animation and then it goes away, and I can not workout why it does that in Chrome, all the other browsers show the animation behaving like it should


      I put this animation into my webpage using a method like


      <script type="text/javascript" >


                                    'codebase', 'https://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0',

                                    'width', '683',

                                    'height', '161',

                                    'src', 'images/main',

                                    'quality', 'high',

                                    'pluginspage', 'https://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer',

                                    'align', 'middle',

                                    'play', 'true',

                                    'loop', 'true',

                                    'scale', 'showall',

                                    'wmode', 'transparent',

                                    'devicefont', 'false',

                                    'id', 'main_',

                                    'name', 'images/main',

                                    'menu', 'false',


                                    'movie', 'images/main',

                                    'salign', ''

                                    ); //end AC code





      <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="683" height="161">

                      <param name="movie" value="images/main.swf">

                                              <param name="wmode" value="transparent">

                      <param name="quality" value="high" wmode="transparent">

                      <embed src="images/final_main.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="683" height="161"></embed>





      This is probably an outdated method? This file was originally created in 2006.


      This doesnt come up when testing the file in flash or show up in another of the other browsers liek ie, ff, safari etc and behaves like it should. Why is Chrome doing this to me?


      I tried debugging the file and going through the layers but I don't see anything why that box would be coming up for a few seconds on the first loop.



      Any help would be great
