Using a preloader, but the audio (FLVPlayback component) starts before preloader finishes.

How do I stop that FLVPlayback component (instance name = aud01) from playing until the entire .swf file is loaded?

Here is my AS3:

import fl.video.MetadataEvent;
aud01.addEventListener(MetadataEvent.CUE_POINT, fl_CuePointHandler);

function fl_CuePointHandler(event:MetadataEvent):void
{
      if (event.info.name=="Cue Point 1")
      {gotoAndStop(5);}
      {trace(event.info.name + ", Time = " + aud01.playheadTime + ", Frame " + (this.currentFrame +1));}
      
      if (event.info.name=="Cue Point 2")
      {gotoAndStop(10);}
      
      if (event.info.name=="Cue Point 3")
      {gotoAndStop(15);}      

}

stop();

Do you have your preloader set to progressive load? If so, it will play before the entire item is loaded.

I figured it out...

In general, I did the following:

() Unchecked "autoplay" in the properties panel of the FLVPlayback file
() Made sure there was no AS3 on frame 1 telling it to play
() In my preloader, in the "load complete" function, I told it to play the video
