I have a home page that loads several flv's. I am also trying
to give the user the ability to view the page without video. When
the user clicks a button on the home page, it sets a cookie that
reloads the page with a different swf file that does not contain
any flv's. However, since it takes a second or two for the cookie
to be read, the initial swf has started loading, and even though
the entire swf is swapped out with the "video-less" swf, those
original flv's continue to load in the background, slowing
everything down even though the user wants no part of the video.
Any ideas how to solve this?
fyi, another feature of the home page shares a similar
problem. The user is to select one of 3 "personal assistants" who
will be their guide through the rest of the site. Once they've
selected, another cookie is set. Each time they return, the initial
swf checks for a cookie, and then displays a static image of the
character they have selected. At this point, I am also trying to
"unload" all of the swfs, but they still load in the background. I
have tried both "unloadMovie(movieName);" and "stream_ns.Clear();".
