Wrong bytesTotal for loaded swf

I have a preloader. It loads external swf.

In the following construction:

mclListener.onLoadProgress = function(target_mc:MovieClip, bytesLoaded:Number, bytesTotal:Number) {
      trace(bytesTotal);
      trace(target_mc.getBytesTotal());
}

I get only one value - 1126163 bytes. But I know that the real file size is 495965 bytes.
How could it be? How can I solve this?

I saw once a piece of AS that used: if (_this.URL <> _parent.URL) { //preloader code}  or somethig really similar to it, and besids the code it was explained that they were waiting for the movie to be ready to start preloading, I didn't fully understand the concept behind that but maybe it has something to do with your problem...

Cerf,

Unfortunately it will not help me. onLoadProgress makes me sure that Flash really thinks that the file it loading is 1126163 bytes and everything is ready for preload (I'm not getting -1).

I found explaination here: http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=288&threadid=854993&highlight_key=y&keyword1=bytesTotal

you are seeing the uncompressed value of the swf file with getBytesTotal(). (There is an option to compress the swf in the publish settings)

But still the question to get real file size is opened.
