Hi guys, I just created a question here for further details:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24684791/how-to-avoid-the-weird-effect-when-changing-tabs?noredirect=1#comment38290825_24684791

To explain it in simple words, when I switch back to the website that contains the Flash movie, the container content is filled with what I was previously watching in the previous browser tab, the picture illustrates the glitch:

However, this doesn’t happen in this site, I can switch back and the content is always there, that is why I think it’s related to how the content is being embedded in the html.

Does anyone know?.

Thanks.

Is your computer being slow when this happens?

Not at all, it happens all the time. It seems like a rendering issue, but I don’t know/understand the origin. The glitch, like I said, doesn’t happen in other sites I tested, this included.

I get this sometimes too, but very rarely.

This happened to me once, but went a way after a bit. Are you using an old version of Flash Player? (for your swf export or your personal player).

No, players are updated to latest version. And since it happens on my site and not in others, a player version problem is out of the question.

It might be the way you are embedding the swf. Try googling the best way to embed swfs on an HTML page.

It may have something to do with the wmode parameter.

The wmode parameter, didn’t think about it, it makes sense.

I will comment the direct parameter in the html and see what happens.
