    Prevent Flash Player 10.1 freezing when off-screen (AS2)

    ChromeShark

      I'm working on a set of SWFs that need to sync with each other using LocalConnection in AS2.

       

      It was working fine in Flash Player 10, but as 10.1 throttles Flashes when they are not visible, the SWFs lose their sync if any of the SWFs are not visible on the page.

       

      This is particularly annoying as we were not aware of this new behaviour in 10.1 and I expect the update will break a lot of similar websites.

       

      Can anything be done to prevent Flash Player from stopping the Flashes? Ideally through the AS2 code.
