View Full Version : Multiple FLV Files Playing At Once

03-28-2009, 09:21 AM

I have a site with a range of categories which instead of having just a picture i want a 5 second clip for each, and i have 16 of them all on the one page!

I have it all set up and playing on the web, all the videos are looping, and because there are 16 of them it is slowing loading time WAY down. Im also finding that the videos are stuffing up and all out of whack! Like when i scroll down on the page they will start playing and then stop and start. The files are around 200-300 Kb each.

I also just tried to convert the videos to Gif and that worked out ok, but the colour quality was CRAP!

Ive seen this done before on a website with about 20 of them and they were .flv i think and all worked fine.

What can i do??

Thank You

I'd try putting them all in the same swf file.

How do you mean?

what like put all 16 videos into one big swf file?

Or have all the different swf files in one folder like i should have already?

As DoMedia says, if you have the whole page as a SWF file it should be quicker than loading all individual videos. It is likely that you will use some common elements so these will load together.
