    I cannot get the preloader work fine. Here is the problem. I wanna load external swf (one) of about 1.8 Mb. Also I want to resize it to fit the holder. This is what i`ve done (if you don`t mind I altered the code, but keep your copyright on). So I modified the code like this:
    1. There werw two layers with placeholder2 (deleted one of them). Was testing the movie in all ways and the duplicate layer was redundant.
    2. Deleted the row script with the _go button, and deleted the button, this for automatically loading the movie.
    3. Inserted _xscale and _yscale code strings (are more effective towards the resize.height etc).
    4. Modified the counter number to 1 instead of 4.

    Well the problem is: even if I was testing my movie from my pc, the movie to be loaded was on the internet (i had to test the speed of the load action). All were working great. Counter worked, the loader animation stoped after the loading was complete. All was perfect. well , when I uploaded my initial file on the server and targeted the external swf to be loaded (on the same server) it worked but not so fine.

    Resizing was good, displaying alright. Problems are: the counter doesn`t work…it indicates loaded 0% (even if i stay 20 min) and loader animation doesn`t disappear. The movie clip plays without problem, but the counter as i said and the loader cube animation are always visible, the problem is that the square loader animation remain even if i switch the page (i have a flash web based site). Any suggestions? Thanks I appreciate!
