Hello,

I have added an Adobe Flash video to my website.  The video starts automatically, and I do not want it to do so.  I have tried adding several tags to the code, but to no avail.  The tags I have tried are:

1) Add a Flash parameter inside the <object> tag:
<param name="play" value="false">

 2) Add the attribute play inside the <embed> tag:
<embed ... play="false">

 3) Add the attribute flashvars inside the <embed> tag:
<embed ... flashvars="play=false">

4) Add the following code after the last "<param name...>" tag:
<param name="autoStart" value="false">

Am I doing something wrong or does the video itself have to be coded to not autostart?

Tahnks!
Anthony

Are you using a freeware video player or did you create your own?

The video was actually converted by a professional website deveopment team from a QuickTime video.  Does this answer your question?

I have to assume you're using Flash to play the video they converted. The player itself may require specific parameters. Can you provide a link to the page with the video? Didn't the professional website development team provide you with instructions? This sounds like a question they would need to answer.

xmediaman,

Yes, we are using a flash video that they converted.  They did not provide me with instructions.  You can get to the video, as is, at this link:

Yes, this looks like a custom video player. The developer will have to instruct you on how to prevent auto play.
