Thanks, Andreas.

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,
