Subject: Re: FLASH: flash memory problems

We hit the memory ceiling (on both macG3s w/256mb and P3s
w/NT4/256mb) at ~100mb fla size. Broke the movie up, worked
fine. Flash is a bit primitive when it comes to allocating
memory for large sized files. Sounds like your files are
pretty large, best solution, get another 128mb (at least).
Second best, set your virtual memory to ~350mb, and give
flash enough so it quits whining.
