I am not quite sure, but doesn't flash stream flv files?
Did you try a trace on the getBytesTotal() if it returns the full flv size?
and see if the real file size is returned by this method or inly the buffer size.
FLV files are not streamed unless they are served from a Flash Media Server.
The preloader issue is probably because the OP is using the FLV Playback
Component. All components are by default set to load on Frame 1, i.e.
before your preloader has a chance to show up.
To solve the issue, right click on the component in the library, choose
"Linkage" and uncheck "Export on first frame". Then set the "Export
Frame for Classes" to something other than Frame 1. Do this by going to
File>Publish Settings and under the Flash tab, and click the
"Settings..." button next to ActionScript version.
O MY GOSH ! It worked, that's excatly what was happening. Wow I wish I can buy you a beer as a thank you...great job Thanks!
No problem... it's one of those things that is not at all intuitive, but
once you know about it, you definitely remember it! :)
