It could be so easy but...
I read the same type of question a while ago that Petteri responded. He seemed to have its own solution. He published a link to a file as an example (link no longer works).
Is it the same difficulty in CS6 as CS5. Anyone have a good solution?
(Would rather not involve myself in Flash Programming).
A long time ago, you wrote: (in answer to the following similar question):
"I wish to export a swf file from InDesign CS5 that will play automatically in a browser and loop.
Currently all I am able to do is manually click the swf to start it and click through page by page.
The end product is a banner ad, so needs to play and loop on its own."

Here is original indd.... check the animation and timing panels. There´s a loop checkbox in both of them (you have to choose all the animations in timing panel before you see loop activated)
Perhaps this could help me (if the CS6 have not optimized this issue?).
I just want, a relative simple, swf banner to continue looping when I publish it in a browser (made in InDesign).
I have 3 "layouts" that I want to loop automatically in the banner.
Thanks for your reply Petteri
Here are those files again:
Here´s actual banner:
I´m not sure how wise it is to make banners with InDesign tough.... the biggest problem is filesize, InDesign adds all kinds of stuff to your SWF, even empty SWF is more than 100kb.. that´s quite a lot for a banner. With most of the hosts you can´t even upload a banner bigger that 40-50kb so that´s a real problem.
Filesize of that sample is 160kb.
Another thing is looping, it´s quite hard to make, I have done it to that sample by using external animation preset (done in Flash Professional), but it´s quite time consuming method...
