I'm having a little trouble getting some video to preload in a targeted MC.The pathe to the target clip is:

_root.target.workTarget

In the first frame of the movie I have this AS:

if (_root._framesloaded == 1250) {
gotoAndPlay(3);
}

The second keyframe:

gotoAndPlay(1);

I also have a looping preloader animation. The problem is the animation just loops, it never loads thevideo. Could someone please help me with this. I believe it's my path, but I've tried everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, why aren't you targeting the movie clip that you are loding into? Your preloader targets the _root., there is nothing loading into the _root level. You are loading into a MC so:



if (_root.target.workTarget ._framesloaded == 1250) {
whatMC.gotoAndPlay(3);
}

The second keyframe:
whatMC.gotoAndPlay(1);
