I am a small time web developer, and I want to add a flash intro to this web page I am building. After spending many hours making it, I find it doesn't run the way I had intended.

I NEED to get advice on how to get the whole of a movie loaded into memory before it starts playing (because I dont want the buffering pauses in it). I want it so that it autoplays when the browser loads (can do that), but it MUST not pause after it starts playing (and i cannot optimise it any further!).

Also I have a question, the publishing gif/ jpeg files, are they the picture that is displayed while the movie is loading?

Please can someone help me out here as I am working on borrowed time (the deadline has been extended for this movie..)

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU anyone who helps me!!!
