I am a flash newbie, how can I get the flash to start playing before it is finished loading on a website? I embedded a FLV file into a flash and I'm going to export it as a SWF, I want it to start playing the movie before it's done loading so people don't think that it's not working. Thanks!
by default, swf's start playing when enough has downloaded to display frame 1.
if you want an flv to start playing by default and it's displayed in an flvplayback component, set the component's autoStart property to true.
Rather then embedded the flv file into the swf have you thought about loading it
in at runtime?
