    Flash playback affected when offscreen?

    Laer2 Level 1

      I have an HTML page that has an embeded Flash header at the top of it with a looping animation and audio.

       

      When I scroll the HTML window, and the Flash header goes offscreen, I notice the looping audio starts playing back erradically.  Even when I scroll the window back so the header is visible again, I notice that even the animation itself appears paused for a moment before it begins playing again.

       

      Is this a known thing with embedded Flash?... that if offscreen, the playback is inconsistent?

       

      Any way around this?

       

      Also, I'm still wanting to have some sort of looping audio (ambient series of sounds) playing in the background.  Currently, I tried just having it as a looping section of the Flash timeline, which works... until the Flash movie goes offscreen.  Is there a better way to do it?
