    Please help me with an as3 preloader

    Hi All,

    I'm a flash noob and really need some help. I spent two full days trying to figure this out and I'm completely stuck.

    I'm using a common preloader technique which basically uses one swf file (preloader.swf) to open another swf file (content.swf) using the following flash object:
    var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("content.swf");

    It almost works but the progress never quite makes it to 100% but it suddenly stops around 85% and launches the video early. It screws up the timing and the video becomes out of synch with the audio.

    Any help would be GREATLY apprecaited.

    You can see what I mean here:

    Thanks SO MUCH in advance.

    Your code is fine. I throttled my connection back and got to 99% before it loaded. How are you activating your sound? I would suggest streaming the sound, instead of loading the event. That should do it for you. ; )

    Thank you for your helpful replies. It turns out that the preloader was not working properly due to the fact that the HTML code I was using to load the swf file was incomplete. This caused it to load propelry in IE but poorly in chrome and ff.
