Movie Object loading issue.

Respected sir/madam,

right now i am displaying movie (.wmv) file using <embed> and <object> tags inside <div> tag. Everything is working fine.

But when user upload 10 MB size movie (.wmv) File, My browser screen is blank ,bcz the browser will start play the movie once the movie (.wmv) file is completely loaded in cache.

I am trying to display 'loading....' message,until browser completely loads movie in cache and starts playing. My Doubt is - is there any javascript functions available to know that movie is completely loaded in cache and it will start to play now.

Incase if there is any function.it will be helpful for me to hide that 'loading...' message using CSS property.

Thanxs for providing some clue or suggesstion to my issue.

Perhaps you could use the object tag's standby attribute - see ref.

i tried by setting standby attribute for <object> tag.but standby attribute text is not displaying while object is loading.

i am displaying my movie(.wmv) file with these <object> Attribute settings:

showcontrols : 0
showstatusbar : 0
showdisplay : 0
autostart : 1
loop : 0

Is there any other way to solve my issiue.

Unfortunately, getting sound working properly in all browsers is difficult.

Is a Flash/JS solution OK? If so, you could try using SoundManager.
