Basically, when the embedded flash is not in view, it doesn't load. The only time it loads is when the embedded swf appears on the screen as you scroll down. Check the link to my myspace. The profile is public, but make sure the video is not in view: http://www.myspace.com/vitaliy_russak Reproducible: Always
This is probably a feature of My Space which keeps your browser from loading things you are not actually seeing. Perhaps you should file a bug with myspace? Marking Invalid.

Perhaps you should file a bug with myspace? > Marking Invalid. NO, it is not a myspace bug. It is also a myyearbook bug, a myflashfetish.com bug. No there is something wrong. on myflashfetish.com, there is a video player that autostarts when in view, but I made it smaller, and it didn't. Please reply.
Hello everyone. We have also confirmed this problem with websites we have developed. We have inserted a small flash music player at the bottom of the page. The player will not load and music will NOT start until you scroll down to make a tiny portion of the flash player visible on-screen. We have tested and confirmed this issue in both FF2 and FF3. Sample website where problem occurs: http://cpcfh.com (local funeral home) You may reply to mailbox at hilltop dot net for further information if needed. Also tested in IE7 - works without scrolling to the bottom. Thank you! Hilltop
This bug still exists. Problem is unresolved.
Reporter, please retest with Firefox 3.6.12 or later in a fresh profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). Also update your plugins (flash, adobe reader, java, quicktime, silverlight, etc.) Go to the developer's website and download the latest version from there. If you no longer see this issue, please close this bug as RESOLVED, WORKSFORME. If you do see the bug, please post a comment.
Apparently after some sort of Firefox update, this issue was resolved. Now when I middle+click the link, it opens in a new tab, and flash content starts up just like I wanted it to be.
