I have 3 big swf files(1.5MB for each)on web page.

movie1.swf  movie2.swf   movie3.swf

and I want to play them serially.

My question is how to load movie2.swf and hold during
play the movie1.swf, and after that, movie1.swf it can
smoothly play movie2.swf and so on.

So, if anyone can help me this, I will very thank you.

try this..

new movie
open as library..movie1.fla
in frame 1 layer 1 drag all the symbols for movie1 and
place around OUTSIDE the stage

close this library

put the word LOADING on the stage so there is something
to look at while the assets for movie1 load.(could be a small animation)

create a new movie symbol..'first'..import movie1.swf

open library

drag an instance of 'first' to the stage into frame 2..(put a stop also)

give it an instance name of..'f'

..................

create a new movie symbol..'second..in frame 1 put the
action...

loadMovie ("movie2.swf",_root.tm);

create a new movie symbol..'targetm'..

put a stop in frame 1
drag an instance of 'second' to frame 2..(put a stop)

back to main stage...new layer..drag an instance of 'targetm'to the stage in frame 2

give it an instance name of..'s'

new symbol..button..put a shape in and copy to all 4 frames of the button

main stage..new layer

drag an instance of the button to the stage in frame 2..select it

put following actionScipt..

on (press) [
  with (_root.s) {
  gotoAndStop (2);
  }
}
on (release) {
  unloadMovie ("_root.f");
 }


that's it..

As your movies are quite large I have included the unload action
as well so the Flash player is not running everything at once.

The idea with the first frame and assets is that movie1 cannot
start playing until all the symbols have loaded..it plays and
movie2 begins loading.

Repeat the process from the dotted line for movie3
