    You should definately preload your avi's. Because avi's require alittle more
    effort from the CDROM and the CPU. Preload your movies BEFORE you actually
    start the movie..

    I found that I got GREAT results by placing all the movies OFF-stage, say
    -1200 of the left. Set their playrate = 0..

    Then when you need the movie, just change the xloc of the video 1200 which
    places it centered (or whever you want it) then set the playrate = 1. This
    basically holds the movies offstage, paused untill you need them.

    Give it a try and use LINGO to do what I mentioned above.

    Hi VaAceman,

    What would the basic code of moving an AVI off stage look like?

    Thanks,

    Hi Doug,

    Doesn't seem to do anything to the video when added to a button rollover:

    on mouseEnter me
    sprite(5).locH=2000

    Any ideas?

    If you have DirectToStage on then you would need to turn it off before doing
    the move. So you would need something like:
    on mouseEnter me
    member(QTvidMember).directToStage = 0
    sprite(5).locH = 2000
    end mouseEnter me

    hth,
