Hi all,

Can I preload the wmv file before play?

I want to show the text "Loading... please wait" and until the wmv is total loaded to user's cache.

If Javascript can't, please suggest other language/method.


Thanks,
Eric

Sorry, I've never heard of a reliable method to fully preload a WMV video to 100%.

Though, the Windows Media Player plugin tries to buffer chunks of the video, enough to (try its best to) show the video without gaps. If you want a "loading" bar of sorts, you can add:
    <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1" />
inside your <object>..</object> code, and:
     ShowStatusBar="1"
inside the <embed> tag. This shows "Buffering: 58% complete" (or something similar) to signify activity.
