Hello all,

I was wondering how to have a video (flv file) load and play only when the 'play' button is pressed, as opposed to the the video file loading when the page loads. I dealt with this issue about 4 years ago, dealing with Flash 8 and flash video, and thought I'd found the solution. But it's been a while so I can't remember exactly how I worked it around.

Having the whole video (or several videos) load on page load can really suck up the bandwidth, and I'm a bit limited on that. So how do I instruct the container (swf) to only begin loading and playing the video (flv) on press play?
