Virtually every site on the Internet uses the .flv standard to play videos. The old adage 'if it works don't fix it'
on FP's own site: I quote:
When you have installed your player with an initial splash image, the Flash video player won’t be loaded until the player is clicked. We call this state a “splash state”.
This lack of industry-standard streaming means that you will encounter problems with playback unless of course you have the luxury of a fibre-optic connection combined with a whizzy graphics card.
The sooner they revert to the proven .flv technology, the more visitors will be left high and dry.
