simultaneous playback issue
Here is my problem:
I have 2 (or more) instances of the same SWF file, and each one runs on a browser window or tab.
A message is sent to all the instances to play the same video. The FLV files are hosted on a web server (so no FMS is involved here).
The first instance to play the movie calls the infoStatus() function (called when the video state changes) almost immediately after the play() method is executed, but the problem is that, unlike the just mentioned behavior, the other instances take a long while between the execution of the play() method and calling the infoStatus() function, causing the video to start playing several seconds (even minutes!!) after calling the play() method.
Does any one know what's happening here and how it can be solved?
Here is part of the actual code:
