    Question Flash video restarts at every ajax poll

    I've got some code that downloads a flash .swf file and plays in a div. All works fine BUT the video will restart every time ajax polls the div population code [php].

    I'm using the prototype.js library for my ajax support. Does anyone know how to prevent the video restarting every poll?

    Smile I used DOM to fix

    enabled javascript in the ajax start up so I now pass DOM info back to the calling html page plus javasscript to stop/start the ajax polling all works a treat...

    echo "<html>";
    echo "<body>";
    echo "<script type=\"text/javascript\">";
    echo "elem1 = document.getElementById(\"question\") ;";
    echo "elem1.innerHTML='<html>HTML to be displayed in the div<html>';";
    echo "myAjax.stop();" ;
    echo "setTimeout(\"myAjax.start()\",20000);" ;
    echo "</script>";
    echo "</body>";
    echo "</html>";
