I have a 7 meg FLV file which streams very nicely using the FLVPLayback component in Flash CS3. It does a very nice job of waiting for the FLV file to buffer before playing which allows for steady playback, however, there is currently about 5 seconds of dead time while the FLV file buffers. Sometimes longer when viewed over a wireless connection. I would like to add just a simple Circle Youtube Style animation at the beginning of the file to allow the users to know that a file is loading. No progress bar required.
Please help !
