There was some serious issues with the previous version of the Flash 6 player:
Macromedia – Flash TechNotes: Updated Macromedia Flash Player Active X control resolves streaming issues
The issues should have been fixed in the new version of the Flash 6 player that is out now.
The fixes include:
- Interrupting of loading media into player does not halt, rather queues and loads entire file.
- LoadSound continues to download even though the object is stopped, unloaded, or deleted
- When an event sound is playing and the sound object gets deleted, the sound still plays even though there are no more references to the sound object.
- Large Media (video, MP3) causes Flash Player to lock up.
