Nope. Animation? You mean like an animated move of a Media Player object inside a page? You can't even do that with a still graphic, although several have suggested that be added as a new feature for the software.
I don't know about TransparentAtStart, but Mark investigated the AnimationAtStart option, and it doesn't get rid of the logo at the beginning...just prevents it from being animated. Which made it kind of a useless option, we thought. (The goal was to prevent the WMP logo from appearing during stream loads.)
I didn't catch that the AnimationAtStart option was diabled - we had a discussion awhile back about getting rid of the MS logo in streaming sources. Oh well.... I guess it's a minor issue in the big scheme of things.
What does the TransparentAtStart function do? Anyone?
you could try floating a black 1*1 pixel stetched ontop of the media_name if its streaming.. during the start of the stream.. so that after it starts playing.. the movie will then goto play and u have the pixel become non-visible.. [or you swap with a transparent pixel, etc..
not sure if this is overly possible under the current settings.. but using layers and img-swapping.. it might work [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
