    external preloader/ internal preloader

    can someone explain me the difference? i am trying to build a loader but that loads a movie clip wich is part of the same swf(i dont see the point in converting this mc to a jpeg as it would weight more), what are the main lines for achieving this?

    I don't know exactly what you mean..

    External preloader would likely mean a function that loaded something external like a JPG and waited until it loaded to display it. This prevents the Flash from showing something like a blank image while it loads.

    Internal preloader might mean something like having a preloader for the movie it is inside at the beginning to load the entire movie before playing.

    well my goal is to fetch an object wich is already inside the swf an have this object a loader assign, just like you would fetch an external ressource (jpg etc..) but this time all inside the swf,is this possible?

    If it inside the swf, you don't need to preload that item. Its already loaded.
