Chapter 24. External Assets > Using Shared Libraries

Using Shared Libraries

A shared library file enables you to use the same buttons, movie clips, fonts, bitmaps, and graphic symbols in computers across a network, or even just in different Flash movies on the same computer.

A shared library is an SWF file stored on the same Web server as the main movie. When the Flash Player encounters a symbol from a shared library, the library file is downloaded. After the entire library file has been retrieved, the movie can use the symbols from the shared library.
