Maybe the loader has an issue with you?!  ;o)  What compressed file?  Please

Many thanks for your reply and sorry for my inaccurate reply.

Both preloader loader (lessig-freeculture-loader.swf) and presentation (lessig-freeculture-loader.swf) are uploaded at http://www.archive.org/download/Lessig-Free_Culture/.

The presentation is a 6.4MB file generated by swfc. It has been generated with compression. The preloader loads the presentation, but when getting the bytes loaded and the total bytes, it counts the bytes as the presentation were uncompressed (so it gives a higher file size: 8.7MB).

It seems that this is an ActionScript “feature”. Is there any way to get the actual number of bytes loaded and to be loaded, that is, the bytes in compressed format?

I hope I have explained myself in a more accurate way.

Thanks for your help,
