    You will need to have a preloader that follows the code that does the
    streaming. Example would be frame 1 could contain the FLVPlayer Flash
    Component that would play the flv and frames 2-4 the preloader loop and
    frame 5 + the movie content.

    In the preloader loop you can select measuring by number of frames
    downloaded or number of bytes downloaded and you can decide if the numbers
    should be a percent of the total possible or a fraction depending on your
    design needs.

    In case you are not sure what a preloader code looks like, you can look at
    some examples I provide for students in my Flash courses at
    [url]http://www.hosfordusa.com/ClickSystems/courses/flash/[/url]. Scroll down to
    preloaders.

    Not show there is the Flash ProgressBar component that is also a preloader.
