Hi , I have a gif of a moving ball (ball.gif) that plays once on loading,

and when clicked it playsthe sound file (ping.mp3),but duz not move the ball.

1.How duz one get the ball.gif not to play on page loading ?
and
2.How can you make ball.gif play with ping.mp3 on the same onclick event ?

thanks.

You may want to start with a single image, and onclick replace it with the animated one.
