SYMPTOMS

When you open a Web page that contains a Video for Windows (.avi) file in a Web browser, the animation starts immediately after the page is loaded even though you cleared the Start options on the Video tab in the Image Properties dialog box (Edit menu).

CAUSE

This behavior occurs when either of the following lines of code are included in the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) document:

   <img dynsrc="filename.avi" start="">
                

-or-


   <img dynsrc="filename.avi" start="FILEOPEN">
                

RESOLUTION

  1. In FrontPage Editor, select the image.
  2. On the Edit menu, click Image Properties.
  3. Click the Video tab.
  4. Under Start, click to select the On File Open check box. Make sure the On Mouse Over check box is not selected.


-or-

Click to clear both the On File Open and the On Mouse Over check boxes.

  1. Click OK.

Method 2: Start animation when the mouse passes over the image

  1. In FrontPage Editor, select the image.
  2. On the Edit menu, click Image Properties.
