    Default Flash clips load slowly

    Hi,

    Would you have any idea why the flash clips are loading slow on the web page in the link provided? At times, it can take almost a minute for the clips to load.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Sometimes content takes a while to load. Depends on the embedding methods as well. Movie clips are usually very large (1 to 2 MB per minute of video). Depending on the length of said clips you will have to wait. Also browsers will use a proprietary loading method unless told otherwise. Meaning they load top to bottom and then lesser sizes to larger sizes. This helps CPU speeds and bandwidth. If you have multiple items to load and they are large the browser will load them one at a time top to bottom to save the bandwidth.

    You can try to reduce file size, or use a single Flash Player and load the movies into that, using a pre-loader for each.
