I was thinking of just making this custom unless there are canned solutions available.. it seems pretty simple.

I want a little 400x300 screen that just rotates through 5 images and has buttons so you can choose the one you want to view. See nhl.com for example.

My question is... is there an easy way to link the images to a folder so that I could just drop them in there and then replace them periodically with "image1.jpg" "image2.jpg" etc... so I don't have to constantly edit a flash file? How would I do this?

Its possible if you load the images externally, meaning don't embed them directly into your file but load them dynamically.

Here is an example that loads 3, which you can expand to 5 easily.
