Thread: Why Are All Movie Sites In Flash

  1. #1
    ok here's the deal iam not an amateur web designer iam not a pro neither but i can knock together a site with flash and sum good coding but i don't know why every movie site is made with nothing but flash - i mean flash is great but to much flash is just annoying...

    don't these designers -- who are getting paid amzing amounts of money - know not everyone has a highspeed connection...

    just thought i express this... if enyone can come up with a reason why movie web sites are all in flash i would love 2 hear it...

    thanks and take it easy

    Simple reason - All movie sites rely on people being able to read them, right? If you check the Macromedia web site, apparently 98% have a version of Flash Player installed. I don't think the stat's accurate but AFAIK it is near to it.

    It's the same reason why most software developers program primarily for Windows - Unless you're aiming just to be for a select few, why use something other those which the majority of visitors can use?

    Hope that answers some questions.

    'cause it looks cool. Or at least the website owners think so. Image is everything in their eyes.

    Frankly, I wish more sites were built that way. This will encourage people to get broadband. More users [usually] translates to lower costs. Broadband is the future and the sooner dial-up users realizes this, the better off everyone will be.
