hi there, i see some videos from a video upload site and want to embed them into my blog, but when i paste them in, and load the page, it autoplays, which is NOT good as i have multiple videos there and don't want them ALL to play at once... here is an example of what the codes look like and what do i have to modify to stop the autoplay? any help is VERY much appreciated. take care

<object width="450" height="353"><param name="movie" value="http://www.videonews...ovieplayer.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="FlashVars" value="vidpath=http://www.videonewslive.com/upload_videos/881.flv" /><embed src="http://www.videonews...ovieplayer.swf" FlashVars="vidpath=http://www.videonewslive.com/upload_videos/881.flv" width="450" height="353" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedi...getflashplayer" /></object>

Try adding this to object tag:
<param name="play" value="false" />

and this to opening embed tag: play="false"

If that doesn't work, then it may have been set inside the flash.

Is this a change from before when it was auto-playing? I took from your post that it was working, but it started to play on page load which you didn't want. What is the link to player?

i appreciate you sticking with me. i am at a very novice level of html knowledge. please excuse my long windedness. before, with the original html codes for embedding worked perfecly, just played automatically when the page loaded. after making the insertions (seen below) it did not work and i'm assuming i did not insert it correctly in the language talk of html world.

this was the original html code:

<object width="450" height="353"><param name="movie" value="http://www.videonews...ovieplayer.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="FlashVars" value="vidpath=http://www.videonewslive.com/upload_videos/881.flv" /><embed src="http://www.videonews...ovieplayer.swf" FlashVars="vidpath=http://www.videonewslive.com/upload_videos/881.flv" width="450" height="353" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedi...getflashplayer" /></object>

and you suggested to add this tag: <param name="play" value="false" />

and this to opening embed tag: play="false"

so what i ended up doing (not sure if it was correct) was make these insertions

<object width="450" height="353"><param name="movie" value="http://www.videonews...ovieplayer.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="FlashVars" value="vidpath=http://www.videonewslive.com/upload_videos/881.flv" /><play="false" embed src="http://www.videonews...ovieplayer.swf" FlashVars="vidpath=http://www.videonewslive.com/upload_videos/881.flv" width="450" height="353" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedi...getflashplayer" /><param name="play" value="false" /></object>

once again, thank you so much for helping me. take care

This is in the wrong order: <play="false" embed You have essentially removed the embed tag. Never put anything before an opening tag's name.

This. <param name="play" value="false" />, probably doesn't matter, but why not place it with the other <para> tags?
