Scrolling Image Flash

I have a site that I would like to be able to swap out some images at 15 second intervals.  There would be 2 to 10 images.  I really don't want them to be in a "canned" flash file if I can avoid it.  I would prefer a situation where the pictures are pulled from the database on page load and then swapped out every 15 seconds or so.

Any ideas?

You can write a Flash .swf where the photos are all external to the program.
If you always call them  1.jpg 2.jpg, etc.  you can swap them independently of the swf.  All it knows is to load 1.jpg or 18.jpg etc.

You could also create random file loading with javascript.

Thank you.  I think I am going to go with a manual flash build.
