> but how can I choose which part of a swf to download first?
You can't. As far as what frame your sound would be embedded in if you unchecked "export in first frame", I believe it would be the frame that sound first appears on. There may be a way to set what frame but I haven't found it.
Your best bet for large sound and video files is usually to download them externally.
Well you could turn export in first frame off and just put the sound in an empty movieclip or on the timeline not playing in frame 100 or something and have the flash movie preload until frames 1 to 99 have loaded and then have a seperate preload effect for the rest of the frames when needed having your main content between frames 1 and 99.
Hope that helped, Ade
Yes it helped a lot, I guess that's the only way. I was thinking about something similar, but I was hoping that there is a simple, working AS solution, but I guess that this is the only way.
you could also just stick it on frame 2 and have preloading code to goto frame 3 after loading.
Another alternative is to load the whole thing into another movie and have preloader code on that instead.
