    SWF won't load from CD

    Hey guys:

    I have a projector (which is about 3MB) open up and directly load a swf into that projector (which is video , 42MB) and it works great locally from the hard drive, but just gets stuck when I run this from the CD. Is it because the file is just too big to run from the CD? If so, what is the suggested maxiumum file size? I even have a preloader on the swf that is being loaded but NOTHING comes up and I am not sure why.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You have to think in Flash

    Preloaders only work when you can stream data into the Flash player from a web server. When you load SWF files from CD the entire SWF is loaded before it starts playing. So the delay you're seeing is from trying to load the entire 42MB file from CD into memory. Macromedia recommends not trying to load files larger than 4MB into Flash at once. I know you don't want to hear this, but you're well over the safety limit on this one!
