Change the flash movie so it doesn't autoplay :)
I believe this involves putting a pause at frame 0 or 1 (I forget
where Flash starts counting frames). So the movie loads then waits.
Sometimes people put a pretty picture for the holding screen, with a
button for "Play".
I am not sure you can cause it not to autoplay in HTML, so I'm not
sure PmWiki's plug-in is responsible for this. It would probably be
the HTML to load the movie when someone gives permission -- but
usually the point is to have the movie loading. Once the movie is
loading, I think it's up to the movie what it will do when it's ready.
Please let me know if I'm wrong. I'm not a Flash guru!! but I
probably should be ;)
