  • Opera Browser Problem

    For starters,

    The test view of my site is at http://www.robindean.com/main.html

    My prediciment ....

    When a visitor goes to my site, audio should start playing automatically. I'm using "Wimpy Player" (wimpyplayer.com) to play my flash files.

    However, some browsers require that a viewer "click" on a flash file to activate it.

    That's a big problem.

    My audio playing flash docs are hidden in a frameset that is "0" tall, so when a viewer looks at it through say, Opera for mac (hint), they have no idea what they're missing.

    Is there a way to "activate" the flash docs automatically?

    If you want to see the hairy code and all, disable javascript in your browser and view the source code for http://robindean.com/audio.html

    And another question ... is there a simple object based way to say "if Opera, do this"?

    "However, some browsers require that a viewer "click" on a flash file to activate it."

    I don't think you can by-pass the features built in to the browser.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

      Opera provides you with an object that allows access to its console (for logging) called 'opera'.
      testing for the presence of this is probably sufficient.
