Flash 8.

How would you go about making it so that the viewer would have something to read while a Flash video buffers, but more specifically a video using the FLVPlayback component?

I have a series of five minute long videos that take a while to buffer. It would be great if I could kill some of this buffer time with a safety message that they have to read anyway. Problem is as soon as the head hits the FLVPlayback frame in the timeline the message goes away and is replaced by a blank buffering screen. Can you preload these things? Thought I read this was not possible.
