    Flash player introduction on homepage
    I came across a website for a land based casino that has a woman appear on the homepage (flash player) and give a verbal introduction to the casino.

    I like this and am starting to think it may be something to add to my website. I am not very technically gifted and am not sure about the logistics of implementing this on my website.

    Would the autoplay function be a problem and do you think it might be better to have something like a youtube video embedded where the user could make their own choice whether or not to play it?

    Without the link to the website the post will not generate any discussion and I can't private message you.

    When can I post links?

    One thing you need to remember is that Flash won't be visible on an iPhone or iPad, and will likely leave a gaping hole on your front page for those users.

    Personally, I can't stand auto-play when I land on a page - I'm self-employed, so it's not a big deal, but I would hate to be at the office when some video started playing..

    Just my two cents worth..

    Oracle you can post it to the Review forum and add the link there.

    This is a very good point and is another very important reason that this is not a good idea.

    This has been said to me many times since I started to research the idea and it has overall been negative comments about the idea.

    While personally I like the idea there are far too many cons to place this on the website.

    Thanks for the helpful advice.
