Unfortunately, I think that the requirement to have Director
available makes this method unfeasible.
I am not familiar with the Flash format. What is the byte level and
how do I find it? Or is that clearly described in the File Format
Do you think there would be a possibility to do this without Director?
Best regards and thanks for taking the time to explain this,
