I'm loading a huge amount of images in my app and caching them internally.

Will these be added to the Internet cache also?

Can I stop them going into the internet cache?

thanks

Caching is at the heart of how the Flash player works - it's there to speed up downlloading of content.

But, if you want to prevent people from raiding their own cache to access your images (that's what it sounds like you want to do) there is no way that I know to do this.

I Googled the problem and found this

This person claims that this prevents (or at least makes very difficult) to cache the actual swf. It may be that these settings extend to any content that Flash downloads... or maybe not... but it seems like a place to start exploring.
