My video is a bit jerky at the moment at the beginning.
Can I somehow have my adobe swf player load up a generously sized buffer before it starts to play, or is that not the issue?
Later on in the video, the jerkiness is not an issue.
(I have Adobe flash cs3 pro)
you can preload a swf.
does your swf play smoothly in the test environment? does your swf play smoothly after loading into your cache on re-load? if yes and yes, then preloading will help you. otherwise, it won't.
can I preload a number of seconds in my SWF?
How do you do that?
sure. use your frame rate and the number of seconds you want to buffer to determine the number of frames you need to preload.
