Strategies for presenting videos over the internet

Recommended Posts

With my dial up, those cute little movies on MySpace look bad, because they have to load, and they show little bits of the video as it is loading. I guess this is called streaming. But it does not make for a good display, at least not on machines and connections which are not state of the art. I am also presenting wmv files on a web page. And my page has this same problem. I am looking for amiable solutions. I suppose one would be to present a loading message in place of the video loading. But how do I do that? I use the following snippet to display the video (abbreviated here)

<object id="MediaPlayer1" abbrev. ></object>[b]<script for="MediaPlayer1" event="scriptCommand(Type, Param)" language="Jscript">[/b]			alert(Param);</script>

The Param parameter lets me know every time I need to change a gif image in another frame. Is there a way I can tell when the clip has stopped loading, so I can remove the loading message, and restart the video? TIAGeorge
