    loading jpg image before flv plays

      I want to load a jpg image into my Flash player for 3 seconds before the flv starts playing.
      How can I change the jpg via javascript or html?
      What are the considerations for small and large videos and buffering?

      Thanks

          What version of Flash Player are you publishing to (or more importantly,
          as you publishing for ActionScript 2.0, or 3.0)? What mechanism are you
          using to get your FLV to play? FLVPlayback Component, Media Component, or
          NetStream object?

          For JavaScript, you can use the ExternalInterface class. For HTML, you
          could use a FlashVars parameter.

          Can you rephrase? What considerations are you talking about? Are you
          asking for general buffering guidelines?
