Are the swf's in the same server folder as the web page that holds the main swf?
Based on your code I tried to find...
but it is not there.
Also, in the code you show you use "menu.swf", but in the Menu.html page it is "Menu.swf"
hey Ned, well the directory for the files is corrected tested that. The correct link was http://www.affiliatemedia.cc/stride/Menu.swf which is supposed to load next to the video (to the left of it) in http://www.affiliatemedia.cc/stride/indexS.html
here is the link of the menu(fla) that is supposed to load in the empty movie clip https://www.yousendit.com/download/MVNmQ1ZqaytTSURIRGc9PQ
here is the link of the site(fla) that runs the swf files in empty MC's https://www.yousendit.com/download/MVNmQ1Z2YWI1aVozZUE9PQ
100 downloads available of links in yousendit
I think it might be the preloader but, that works too, i mean i re hit "apple return" to refresh the load, and make it go internet speed to see the preloader run and that works. but again when loaded online(hosted on the web). its not showing up (the menu.swf)
So the line of code you showed earlier had a typo only for the posting (lowercase "m")?...
I'm curious why you have what you call a preloader for the menu? If there is some reason for needing to wait for the file to load, you should use the MovieClipLoader.loadClip() method rather than loadMovie. loadClip() supports have an event listener that you can use to determine when the file has completed loading, as well as load progress reporting ability.
