    External SWF Preloader

    Babbaganooosh
      I have a SWF with a loader component into which I load a child SWF. The problem I have is the child movie plays while it is loading, and when the progress bar component disappears and the movie is displayed it has already run through half. I know I can put a stop(); in the first frame of the child movie but how do I reference the child to make it play once it has loaded?

      I tried loader.content.gotoAndPlay(2); but that doesn't work. I put it in the second frame of the preloader, and it seems to work, but it's constantly refreshing.

      I just need an external SWF preloader that doesn't start playing the external until it's completely loaded. I've found lots of preloaders, but the only ones like this use buttons the user has to click on.
