My preloader for a flash movie I'm making is flashing a white box for
like .2 seconds. How do I set the default bg value so it doesn't show as
white?

Since this is not the color of my page bg.

You need to set the bgcolor attribute in the object tag and the embed tag in your HTML if you do not want the default background to be #ffffff or white.

Here is an example of how to do it:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0"
id="bigwebmaster_sign" width="150" height="80">
<param name="movie" value="bigwebmaster-sign.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="menu" value="false">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#333333">
<embed name="bigwebmaster_sign" src="bigwebmaster-sign.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#333333" menu="false"
width="150" height="80"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">
</embed>
</object>

Just a quick question about preloaders...

I usually make preloaders for my flash movies since they take quite a while for 56kers to dl. Now the problem is, sometimes the preloaders work and sometimes they don't! And i really don't know why. When they don't work, it's jsut a blank white screen that takes a while to load.

Anybody know why?

Thanx in advance.

Brandon - can you tell me the technique you use to preload? do you use
ifFrameLoaded() or getBytes() ? or do you use some other method...
