    Checking to see if a movie is loaded

      Is there a way to check, to see if a movie is already loaded on

      a particular level so that it's not reloaded every time someone

      goes to another page on the site? I want it to load only once

      and not ever and over again.

       

      thanks

          Hi there,

          Well, if you reload a website, then Flash needs to check if every part it's going to use is loaded. Whether you're talking about main swf itself, an external swf or an flv or other video file, it's always wise to make sure that the file you want to show is actually loaded (streamed flv is an exception). That's the whole point of preloading, but when your file is already loaded, it's in cache, then your preloader won't actually appear.

          I don't know if I get your point to be honest...

           

          If your movie is being loaded everytime you reload your website, it shouldn't, because the movie should be already in the memory. When you call a kind of load method in Flash, it always checks cache for already downloaded files.
