    My website: http://blsmithmedia.com/
    Area in question: "Featured" tab on the left in the center of the front page.
    Issue: The YouTube video does not fade in and out correctly on PC (using latest final builds of Firefox/Chrome/IE) - it 'pops in/out', but fades in and out correctly on a Mac (using latest final builds of Firefox/Chrome/IE).

    I have tested this on multiple Macs and PCs and came to this conclusion. I would like the transition to remain smooth on PC as well but don't know what I can do. I have tried the old and new embed codes with Youtube and came up short. Can any of you recommend something I can add to the embed and/or a plugin that would allow this area of my website to fade in/out correctly? I very much appreciate it.

    I had a similar thread like this up a few weeks ago but now that I've cleared up what is causing some users to have the problem and some not I felt it warranted a new thread.

    Experimenting with the work-around you mentioned in the previous thread is on-going and I've been very busy this last week to try anything new.

    My main point with this thread is to inquire about why it might load differently on different operating systems - working great with one and poor with another.

    The fact that it works/doesn't work on different OSes probably means that it's a problem embedded very deep in how the single OSes render their GUIs and there is not much you can do about it at all.

    Actually it's because the bytecode interpreter of flash player is different on every OS.
    For those who don't know what a interpreter is:

    When you make a flash application you compile the actionscript code into bytecode. The installed version of flash player (Which is different on every OS) then reads that bytecode and runs the application. A normal program would get compiled into binary code and runs directly.

    The negative side is that it's less efficient. But the positive side is that you can run your application everywhere (as long as the interpreter is installed (flash player in this case). It's obvious that the flash player in mac is slightly different then the one used by windows. Which causes your problem.




    ....Or I could have said "Flash player is different on every OS so it will handle Flash differently on every OS."
    Instead of probably saying something wrong and making a fool out of myself.

    How about using HTML5 player and div with CSS animation covering entire video that removes itself after the end of the animation using JavaScript?

    If the player is based on HTML5 it should work without any nasty tricks.

    The neat thing about the new youtube embed code is that if you have activated HTML5 video on youtube it will also display as such in the embed.

    It's this neat html tag called iframe. magical
