do you have more than one movieclip named serOver_mc? one that you created in the authoring environment and one that you create with the first line of your code?
if so, that would cause the problems you describe.
One thing to remember when loading a swf into a container is that the swf takes the coords of the container and not the screen.
Therefore the top/left of the container will be 0,0. To ensure your alignment is correct, always make the content with the reference top left.
Hope it helps
Kglad, The Feldkircher: Thanks.
Accepting that the swf "takes the coords of the container" made the positioning issue solveable for me.
I got control of the playback issue by simpling placing the line: "image_mcl.loadClip("rtmMovie.swf", serOver_mc); at the point of desired playback (inside an "on(release)" function. I know this works on my computer, but is it correct for deploying over a website.
My goal was to have the swf download and be ready for playback when the user came to the button that will launch it. Does "onLoadInit()" accomplish the download to the users computer, and then "loadClip()" launches the playback? Or are my users going to be waiting for this 100k download (a good percentage of my audience is on 28K modems) when they push the button to play it? That's 20 seconds of wait time I could avoid if I wrote the code correctly.
Thanks for the help.
