Wierd apparent auto-download of Shockwave audio

Hi everyone,

I have recorded some conference calls for my business partners, put them online
in Shockwave audio format using a player available from Shockwave. And I'm
encountering an annoying problem.

When someone connects to my page at
http://users.myexcel.com/igrover/wednesday-recordings/ using Internet Explorer,
even though the browser says the page is finished downloading, there is heavy
traffic in the background that, according to Ethereal, is the Shockwave audio
being automatically downloaded. But according to the configuration, I've
disabled the auto-play feature of the Shockwave player.

Why is the Shockwave audio automatically downloading in the background?

Thanks in advance,

Isaac

That's the second time in a few hours that you posted the same question,
the answer hasn't changed since then, here it is again:

That's what you get if you attempt to embed audio, don't:

Thank you for answering it again. The reason I asked the question in a
different group is because most groups have different readers and while I won't
necessarily say that you are wrong with your response, I believe there might be
more than one right answer to my question.

Embedded external data gets loaded with the page by systems that have
support for the data type used.

Solution: stop doing that and make it user selectable: link.
