Animated GIFS and QT movies stop loading when using onclick, why?
Posted on 1998-05-13
I have a page that plays Qt movies for streaming video and audio and I also have animated GIFS on my pages. When I use this to display a status msg:
<a href="#" onMouseOver="MM_displayStatusMsg('Where?');return document.MM_returnValue"><img src="images/5a.GIF" width="70" height="70" border="0"></a>
(created in Dreamweaver), when the user clicks the image all animated GIFS stop looping (they freeze at current frame) and QT movies stop downloading, which really ruins the dynamics of the page. Reloading the page will start everything from the beginning. How can I fix this? Viewing in Netscape 4.05 for PowerPC (Mac). Thanks!
