Kimili Flash Embed plugin settings
When I uploaded an FLV for display recently, the Kimili plugin would sometimes deliver the video quite quickly. Other times it would be painfully slow.
The plugin depends upon a file called SWFobject.js and, by default, it gets this file from a Google repository. This seems logical, because the repository copy is probably up-to-date, thus keeping the plugin up-to-date automatically.
But what if the Google server is slowed down for some reason? Reasoning that this might be the cause of the plugin’s sluggish behaviour, I changing its settings to use the internal SWFobject, rather that the Google copy.
At the moment, the video is coming in faster. I’ll have to keep trying it, to see if the improvement is consistent.
