I've built a site and it's loading slow on certain websites. First of all... some sites stop the automatic audio from playing, saying something like "this site is trying to use active x control, do you want to install"... So that's the first thing I need to fix. Is there a way around this? Some way to have the audio going that universally loads fast and plays on all computers?
Also some pictures/navigation buttons don't load on the page with certain websites...
I was thinking that maybe the sizes of all the pictures and the header flash is maybe causing the slowness of the loading. Here're the sizes below--
-navigation buttons are 30-37 kb each
-flash in the header is 173 kb
-audio that plays automatically is 515 kb
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
