    I am building a large CD Rom project that incorporates a lot of video files. Is it possible to build a preloader in Flash that loads an html page with an embedded QuickTime movie in it? How would the .mov file secretly cache from the user's CD drive onto the computer and be ready after the Flash animation ends and the html page begins?

    Thanks!

    Its possible. You disable Quick Start in the embed tags. http://developer.apple.com/quicktime/ has tutorials on how to do this.
