I have created a flash file, and it is rather processor intensive. I want to change its quality depending on the actual frame-rate it is playing in the browser.

To do that i would need to know the time it takes to do 2 frames. Any suggestion on how i could do this?

Flash has methods for capturing time from the host system, but this sounds like an impractical idea, IMO. Check into the Date class in the Actionscript dictionary.

When you set the framerate for a presentation, you're setting a maximum playback rate. You probably know that you won't achieve that rate on all clients. Also, if a client's playback is sluggish, it won't be consitently sluggish.
