    Pausing the loading of an external SWF?

      Does anyone know of a way to pause the loading of an external file so that it can be resumed later.

      Alternatively, does anyone know of a way to detect the file size of an external file without actually loading it into your movie?

          no, it can't be done. and i don't think you can detect the size of an external file size without starting its download.

          you might be able to use the filereference class to detect a file size, but it would require the user to mouse over the "browsed" file and so probably wouldn't be helpful.
