White box before the flash movie loads!! HELP


#1
Hi

I've made a flash intro, on a black browser background and my html page is black as well. Although the flash movie is also a black background, there is a white box that appears at the begining of the movie.

I've tried to add transparent mode but didnt work.

OBJECT: <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

EMBED: wmode="transparent"

Any ideas of how to get rid of the white box?

This is the website bonansa country hotel

and this is the part of the code:



<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','550','height','400','title','BonansaCountryHotel.','src','BonansaCountryHotel','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','BonansaCountryHotel' ); //end AC code
</script><noscript><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" width="550" height="400" title="BonansaCountryHotel.">
<param name="movie" value="BonansaCountryHotel.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<embed src="BonansaCountryHotel.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="550" height="400"></embed>
</object></noscript>

THANKS

I’m going to state the bleedin’ obvious, but have you double checked the actual background colour of the flash file is set as black (Modify: Document: Background Colour).

Apologies if you have, it’s just I miss this kind of thing all the time!

You could try making an empty .swf with a preloader that loads your main .swf into it. That way, the browser initially only has to load something negligible like a 3kb swf, then it will load your movie and display a preloader. Sometimes if your trying to load even a medium sized .swf with a preloader, you get a brief moment of having a 'white square' apear on your page as the movie is loading. This wont look good if your web page has a black background. You could draw a black box as the background as a quick fix. Really though, you should be embedding your swf with swfobject since that is regarded as the best method.
