Preloading external flv for FLVPlayback

I have flash actionscript 3 project that on the second frame (after the welcome screen) loads external flv into FLVPlayback component or external mp3 for player.

I'm trying to find code for preloader to the entire project - that will show before the first screen and will preload also the external files so when the user moving to the frame with the player the flv/mp3 will be shown immediately.

is it possible to load the flv into some object and then assign it to FLVPlayBack component as source?

Any help will be much appreciated!

    If you are intent on making the user wait for the video to load fully, then don't keep it external.  Import it into Flash and place it in a movieclip in the first frame.  Make it visible in the second frame.
