    hello all
    i have 2 problems, hope one of you could help me solve them.

    Doubt 1:

    if i want to add a link on my page to another website then must i type in the whole address...as in

    get url(http://www.flashkit.com) ?

    get url(www.flashkit.com does not work) so isit the former one?

    Doubt 2:

    my movie is a bit large and it takes a while to even get to the loading page.....my company sup says that she has seen flash pages which load extremely fast. i have tried decreasing the jpeg quality and even compressed my file. any other solution?
    i guess the trick is to just load the a partial part of the movie and let it begin immediately and as it goes the rest of the movie is loaded......am i right? if so , how do i do it? say i just want the first scene(which i would make it to be really small) to be loaded and it starts to play as soon as a visitor wishes to view the site ...the rest of the scenes load as the 1st scene plays.....

    do suggest how i could do that. thank you for your time and energy. ......by the way anyone in europe wanna join me to go arnd europe?

    with regards

    It does sound like you need to put a preloader in. There's a tutorial for a Flash 4 preloader that might help:
