Playing MPEG movies

Is there an easier way to load MPEG movies aside from converting it to SWF?

When I convert to SWF I have the ff concerns:

  1. file is too big 30 or more MBs
  2. need to retain the quality and scale
  3. takes a long time to load
  4. takes up a big chunk of memory (i’m assuming)

I’m making an interface that will be played from a CD so bandwidth is not an issue but load time from CD is.

Are you loading the .mpg into a MC symbol?


Any other way to do it?
