Hello...

My flash site contains several external .jpgs with are called in through loadMovie();. This works fine on my local machine as everything is stored and readily available.

However, in online implementation, the loadMovie(); takes longer to excute as the images have to be downloaded by the end user.

So my questions is two-fold:

1) Is there a way to preload external images through flash and also which won't make the preloader to the entire movie last for 2 and a half centuries?

2) If I implement a javascript preloader, will this have any effect on how fast the flash movie calls the same images.

Thanks

...Not sure. But if a browser and flash use the same cache, it may be best to just use a div with the display:block, and load all the images inside.
