Shockwave movies crash on web

Shockwave movies crash on web

Shockwave movies crash on web

I have 4 Shockwave movie links on a web page.  When anyone clicks to view just one, it works fine.  But if a person hits the back button and selects another, it ALWAYS causes a GPF error and crashes IE.  It doesn't matter what order you select the movies in (a person could select the 4th movie, view it fine - go back - and select the 1st movie link and it will crash).

I have tried unloading the movie with a quit button, but it doesn't fix the problem.  I am using Director8 and all of the people who have tested it did so with the newest shockwave viewer plugin.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!


RE: Shockwave movies crash on web

My suggestion is to combine all those movies into one in FLASH. That or offer a back button on the second pages so the visitor could return that way. Plus if your using cookies you might want to check them out.

Hope this helped,
