If your code's currently showing the static SWF images, then there's NO change that needs to be
done - it'll all just work. The static image you curently see is actually just an animation with a
single frame rather than many, and to the user an aniamtion would simply show the "loading...
xxx%" messages you normally see before kicking off into its show.
