HELP !Coolplayer Bandwith issue / FLV embedding (1 post)

    I tried using the Coolplayer plug-in for embedding Flash videos into my posts, but my bandwith went through the roof overnight. Even Googlebots hitting the page was counting as a full download of the video, even if the person/bot never hit play. The strain it put on the servers was unbearable.

    I am trying FLVEmbed right now, not quite sure yet if this is also the case, but has anyone else experienced this? I really want to embed Flash video, but only strain the server if you actually want to watch it.
