I've created a swf into which I am now trying to input an ad banner at the bottom. The ad in particular is an animated gif and is being fetched from another domain. I've tried putting it in an img tag but I only get the first frame.
Is there a way to reference an external animated gif and get it to display correctly without needing to import it to the library first? I was hoping to be able to hold the information on the ads in a database table in order to be able to switch the ads more easily.
I am using Flash CS3 / Actionscript 3.
