Loading bytes with SWFLoader

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm creating a mobile app where I'm loading some SWF files from a server and also some SWF files from the devices local disk. When I'm loading the SWFs locally I have to do it in the form of a byte array. I can do this no problem using the Flash Loader class loadBytes method. The problem is I would like to keep all the loading in a LoaderMax queue as this is very convenient to use.

 

Is there any way to load bytes using the GreenSock SWFLoader class? Or failing that any way to load a Movieclip into a SWFLoader, as though it was loading from a url? This is probably not possible but I thought I would check.

Sorry, but that isn't currently supported. You could just extend SWFLoader (or create your own that extends LoaderItem) and add whatever functionality you need. The private variable for the Loader inside is _loader.

I need this as well... Were there any updates on this issue, or perhaps ptc could share his code with me.. I want to Load the swf as bytes like the classical loader does.

 

Thank you.

I ended up using DataLoader and I got the ByteArray from the loader.content variable.
