Subject: RE: FLASH: flash for banners or not?

not catching the original post, I'll jump in anyway...

speaking from experience, Flash banners (while VERY cool) can be a pain in
the butt to implement on a huge media buy because many sites (and we're
talking big names here) don't even have their Flash specs set yet and
there's no web-wide agreement on what those specs should be -- it's still
"figure it out as we go" for the sites and there's a lot of excruciating
back and forth on things like where to place tracking URLs (in the html or
the flash), various sniffers, etc., etc.

once those hurdles are crossed, it is cool as hell to see your flash banners
all over

...and one day there will be industry standards (I hope)

it's an issue of the audience not having the browser or the host page's
webmaster not understanding how to implement it or the server not being set
for
it.

I agree, it would be great to do all banners in flash, but for now the best
for
a WIDE audience is probably gifs. But this is changing quickly.
