Visualizing Flash WMODE Options

A while back I needed to demonstrate how Flash's WMODE settings behave across all platforms and browsers. Instead of trying to explain it in words, I made a standalone test page that illustrates several key concepts.

  • Different WMODEs sort different with elements on the same page.
  • Some WMODEs cause noticeable performance degradation, including the ability to skip Flash frames.
  • Some WMODEs behave differently across Operating Systems.

I hope it is a useful educational tool.
