How are you linking your movies? If you're using 'go to movie...' , that would
explain the above. Use 'gotonetmovie' instead.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have used the go to movie command. I will try your suggestion and let you know if it works!
It's working except I am trying to go from one movie to a specific frame. The lingo for example is now:
on mouseUp me
go frame 738
However it just plonks the user at the start of the movie whereas before it went straight to frame 738. Is there anyway to resolve this?
Another issue is there are white pixels suddenly around the graphics and it looks a complete mess!
Any thoughts on any of the above would be very much appreciated!
Have you tried what the help suggests:
gotoNetMovie " http://www.yourserver.com/movies/buttons.dcr#Contents"
Should go to marker content.
The white pixels are not caused by compression? You know that your movie, and all images included, gets compressed when you publish for web. You can try to set the compression yourself in the shockwave tab of the publish settings.
