I am using a technique for embedding Flash movies into web pages that keeps my page valid XHTML (<embed> is depreciated):
This does fix the problem of Internet Explorer failing to stream the movie before it is completely loaded.
However, when using loadMovie, web browsers seem to keep reading the page, never saying 'done' at the bottom. I would like to have text appear at the bottom continuously, and I know how to do this, but it seems the status bar is not editable before the page has loaded.
In Firefox, it never stops saying "Read <url>", and in IE "(1 item remaining) Opening page <url>" and the progress bar freezes.
More importantly, it keeps IE7 from being applied.
Has anyone else experienced this and is there a way around it?
