Loading Movies or Images

The MovieClipLoader lets one Flash movie play another. Effectively, the second movie plays on top of the first. It's easiest to understand, though, if you think of one movie as the host and the other movie (the one that's loaded on top of the host) as the submovie. Think of a big entertainment system—a wall of stereo and TV equipment. The movie you put into your VCR can play on only the TV screen. Think of the TV as the host Flash movie, and the video you put into your VCR is loaded on top of it.

One reason to do this is because you might have several submovies that only play one at a time. You might want to give the user the choice as to which submovie to play. All you need to do is trigger the MovieClipLoader when the user clicks a button. It's sort of like a jukebox, where each record or CD is a separate submovie. The reason the MovieClipLoader is beneficial is that only the submovies the user requests have to download.
