Job Description

Design an SWF file that displays visual content depending on the settings of an external XML document.

The idea is that we will have a SWF file that will play a gallery of images one at a time for 10 seconds each. The idea is that we will run these galleries on multiple computers to display different galleries. Each SWF gallery will need to create and then monitor it's XML file going forward so that for example if we have 4x computers running 4x galleries and we update one of the XML files for say PC 1 - PC1 will be checking the XMl file on each loop and see that the XML has changed and thus change the gallery accordingly.

The SWF is to use its own file name to generate the name of the XML config file it loads.
For example, north-screen.swf would try to load north-screen.xml
I think that this._url and/or _root._url can be used to find out the file name of the SWF that is running.

If there are multiple images defined in the XML file, the SWF should cycle through them in 10 second intervals.
At the end of each loop, the SWF should reload the XML config file in case it has been updated.

If no image is defined in XML then SWF file plays a default image that is set to fall back to.

Log of each time the script loops.
