Hi Boris,

I'm not really a pdf2swf chap - rarely, if ever, have I had call to use it. 
than attempting to answer questions of course.  I did not write the viewer 
code, nor have I really looked at them either, as always preferred to script my 
own in
swfc.  The source of the viewers is available to edit though, if you fancy 
to wade through it yourself.

Have you tried the very simple swf load script I put here,

as a starting point for rolling your own basic viewer?  Change the dimensions of
the viewing frame, add a few simple buttons, and you're practically there.  As 
go along, simply consult the documentation, and keep asking on the list if the 
arises.  Common answers of interest can always be posted on the wiki.

While it obviously depends on the size of your converted file, swf files viewed
directly in a browser, will nearly always load quicker.
