  • How to stop the video playing automatically?

    Greetings Broncofans form the UK's #1 Broncomaniac!

    Can anybody tell me how to prevent the video on the front page playing automatically? I do have broadband, but I'm finding that the page wants to load the video before anything else loads. And then the audio starts playing before the pictures have loaded. This happens every time I go to (or go back to) the front page. Is there any way I can stop this, such that I can play the video when I choose to watch it? This is going to drive me crazy by the end of the season!

    Otherwise I love the new look of the front page.

    Here's to a great season. I'll be watching the game on Sunday live on UK TV!

    this is good advice

    it doesn't bother me much, but i've noticed the same thing. it should probably be changed so that the video doesn't play until we press play, or some such. like adrian though i love the new look overall.

      Right above the video is a button marked "Hide Video". Click that, and it will stop the video. You can also just hit the little square stop button right under it.

        That's exactly what I mean. Why should I have to click on Stop or Hide Video every time I go back to the front page? Apart from this, it also means that the rest of the page takes significantly longer to load than it otherwise should. I pity those who still have dialup connections! My guess is that the command to play the video by default is coded in the web page, and so we will have no way of preventing it unless that coding is changed.

          We're working on revising this so the video does not load automatically. May take a while to implement, though.

              Ya know Duece, I knew that. However, since the video currently plays, I was just telling him how to make it stop. It doesnt bother me at all. I just make a simple click! Not too hard.

              Id remind you two that there are people with REAL problems in the world today.........

                  It's the MAIN PAGE Jared!

                  WWW.DenverBroncos.com

                  You'll see the video start in the upper right.

                  I agree with these guys that having the video play automatically sucks, but I just dont think it's that big a problem. There is an option to shut it off, and it's not like it takes THAT much effort to do so.

                    YAY!!!!

                    I can reinstall Real One again soon. I uninstalled it to keep the video from playing.

                      Hence the smiley.

                      Although, I admit, I vere rarely go there, as my NFL.com page is set to link to any new Bronco related stories on that site or here. Takes me right to the article, so I don't usually see the main page. I bookmarked the forums.

                          He's like the head writer of DenverBroncos.com or something like that. He does most of the articles for DenverBroncos.com

                          I think he's like the official DenverBroncos Reporter.

                            Problem being, though, is even though you can "hide it", it STILL plays in the background......

                            tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of
                            men."
