hi there -

i have some news for you. it's not the best news, but it should help you understand what's going on.

flash .exe files are cool to use, and have been used for non-browser flash presentations. however, they are not intended to be used for large files. doing so will cause the behavior you described - inconsistent playback, logical mistakes, crashes, etc.

a 4mb flash projector is definitely pushing the limits of what is safe to do in flash. it just can't handle that much media efficiently. for a more robust multimedia tool that was made to do this, try director.

i want you to view this technote:

it's pretty self-explanatory.

i should know because i wrote it. ;>)

hope this helps -

hi there -

re: "download time"? i don't know what you mean. this file is for offline viewing?

you can use the bandwidth profiler (when in "test movie" mode) to see what it would look like d/l at different modem speeds.

2. the FLA file size is not as important here. the important thing is the SWF file. a SWF that is more than 2 or 3 megabytes can and will start making problems for people, in the browser or as a projector.

hope this helps -
