    preload flv before use

      So I have a site that has a button that once pressed plays an flv file. But, the file is too large to play all the way through without stopping to buffer in the middle. I feel like I'm ruining a first impression when that happens since it is the intro video to the site. How do I get the flv to load before they ever click the play button to watch it?

          Depends on how you are loading the FLV. Are you using components? If so, look for an "autoPlay" option somewhere, and turn it off. I can't remember off the top of my head, but I know at least some of the FLV components have that option.

          If you are doing it via code and a Video object, I believe you can just start loading the FLV via play("video.flv") and then immediately pause() the NetStream.
