    How can I precache an external movie, from another movie while this main movie is doing something else.
    What I want to do is precache an external movie into the browser so it will be available instantly later.


    thanks alot!

    .

    Well I need to be able to load a movie into the browser, invisibly as other things go on.

    So how would it be possible, with javascript, to precache a file invisibly?

    Im dealing with the same issue

    what is the actual code to make this happen. Im dealing with a very similar issue. I have a flash file(Base move) and I want to begin loading a swf into level 2 at the biginning say frame 1 of the base movie but not display it until say frame 300.

    The swf im loading into level 2 is a swf with video and audio, making in invisible it would still begin playing right? I can't have that. it needs to be ready to play once the base movie reaches frame 300.
