I have made a website for my employer, as I am apparently the only computer literate employee ;)

Anyway, the site is www.thegoopguys.com

As you can see, the .swf file loads perfectly, and will autoplay if you hit the autoplay button on the control panel.

My question to you is: HOW on earth do I get that slideshow to just START autoplaying when the page itself loads up?

Attach your .fla.

Unable to attach here, as the file is 2.27mb, and zipped it is 2mb.

I'll look for a place to host it momentarily, unless you have any suggestions?

I thank you for the time, I am bound and determined to get this to work!

First rename your autoplay button mc to autoplay_mc... Otherwise Flash is confused by the same named autoplay() function...

And use this, at the end of your controller's actionscript ...

updateFrame();
autoplayStatus = 1;
autoplay_mc.gotoAndStop(2);
