Dynamic image pulls for timelapse

I am currently developing a time-lapse project for a client, and the images have been collecting since June 06.  this is all displayed on a webpage (http://www.ccwater.com/losvaqueros/conditions.asp) but it makes me download all 365 images.  Is there a way I can make this into a flash or quicktime movie that dynamically pulls the images from a folder on a server? I would like to have a slider control (QuickTime) for the user to go back and forth, or just play through the whole timeline.  Remember, the images have to be pulled in dynamically, so a simple quicktime movie wont do it.

Server is IIS 6 w/ ASP, full control available to add plug-ins.

You can absolutely do that in flash.  using xml. I would search out a good photo gallery tutorial for flash. that loads photos from folders

You would create a new xml object, load the xml, push the values in the xml into an array and then cycle through that array using attachmovie to put the files on the stage.  I will try and find some helpful code tomorrow.  I just made something that kind if works this way.

No answer, but I did get poitned in the right direction.  Ended up buying a ohmyflash.com project that had what I needed and then modified it to my specific needs.
