preloading video clip defined in a text file- help

preloading video clip defined in a text file- help

I need to load a series of video clips, as defined in a text file, into memory so they can be played virtually instantaneously on the touch of a button.

No problem loading the clip into memory so it is just outside the screen area, and moved in and played when it is needed.  Big problem, ie I can't work out the right coding, to get director to understand which clip I need from a string read from a text file. (The text file can be changed externally.)

RE: preloading video clip defined in a text file- help

You can import videos dynamically into the Cast using either Member.filename or Member.importFileInto().
