This is now the Official DeviantArt Flash Preloader.

FAQ #790: Where can I download the Official deviantART Flash preloader?

*you can always leech it from my gallery -> here

:postit: Note: The code this preloader uses is written in ActionScript2, so you'll need a minimum of Flash MX2004

Ah ok, well this is just a preloader - an animation that is shown while the Flash movie is still loading.
The play button here does nothing, it only shows how the preloader will look like.
You would put this at the start of your own Flash movie, and it will show the download progrees. Once your movie is fully loaded, the user would click play, and your movie would start.

So how do you make the wait time longer? Or does it do it by itself?

ArtBIT Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It does it automatically, depending on the size of your movie.

Do you get any errors?
Have you tried creating a test movie with just one big image, and see if it works there?

i tested it in the flash document it comes in and it works fine, but when I tried using it in my flash movie,  it doesn't load correctly, instead of saying 100% it says 00.00%

That's exactly what a preloader does. It just shows you how much of your file has been loaded.
Ig you have a huge flash movie, you have to add a preloader so that users know how long will it take before the whole movie has been loaded and when will they be able to view the movie.

I'm currently working on a video that I hope to upload here. This should come in handy. Is there a limit to how much is downloaded?
Reply
:iconartbit:
ArtBIT Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It should work whatever the filesize of your movie is. The percentage is limited to 2 decimal places, so if your movie is really big, the numbers will increase very slowly, but it will work.

Don't know what he is talking about because it works just fine for me.

Download the file from: deviantPreloader .fla
And there should be a readme.txt file (or something similar) in the archive.

Lemme know if you have any further questions.
Cheers
