    Is there a possibility to store and transfer the .swf file in a packed format.
    I zipped a.swf file and it went 30 % smaller!!!
    If it can be transfered packed and be unpacked at client side that would make a difference.

    any tools /ways to do so ???

    No, the problem with that is the whole file would have to download and then un zip defeating the whole purpose of Flash to stream. Regards, Bill

    In the beginning the web was without shape and color, and the hype covered the darkness of the net. Then there was a Flash and life came to the web and vision became reality.
