Hello,

First off I'm using CS3, with AS3. I'm a complete novice with Code so please spell it out to me as simply as you possibly can. (I've spent 3 days searching for solutions that I can't understand)

I'm trying to preload a movie so that it doesn't stutter when it plays. So i thought preload the whole flv and then let it automatically play. I followed Adobe's tutorial http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/ar...amming_03.html on 'Controlling web video with ActionScript 3 FLVPlayback programming' and added a progress bar all using components. But I just can't get it to work, the progress bar disappears when it loads and the movie starts playing before its preloaded.

Here's the online version;

and I've put the .Fla here:

Thanks for any help,

A struggling, tired designer...
