PHP; Load .mov File Last

Using the line:
<body bgcolor="#ffffff" onload="MM_preloadImages('../graphicindex/clicktoplayred.png','../keynote/keynotecprof.mov')">

means that key elements in the page do not load until the end which makes the page look defective which it now is.

Is there a way of loading the .mov file last?

Hi,

Are you saying you've been able to load a movie this way?

Do you set the height and width of the images you are loading?  Doing so would keep the layout constant.

hello smudgemouse, I am not familiar with the MM_preloadImages( ), - function, but I will just assume from it's name that it will load files into an array or Image stack. What I would try, is to take out the <body  onload= , entirely as -
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">

and add this at the very END of the html, just before the </body>-

<script language="JavaScript">
MM_preloadImages('../graphicindex/clicktoplayred.png','../keynote/keynotecprof.mov');
</script>
</body></html>

which would cause the loading the .mov file to be last. . .

alternetly, you might try -
<body bgcolor="#ffffff" onload="MM_preloadImages('../graphicindex/clicktoplayred.png')">

but I am not sure all of what the MM_preloadImages() might be for
