so, this is kind of complicated. i'll just explain it the best way i can. first of all, i'm a mac newbie...i can stumble my way about, but not that great.

i have a mac mini that i want to put in a restaurant. this mini will be attached to a large digital screen displaying a menu. i want to be able to play a flash movie (.swf) on that mini in full screen mode. here's where the problem is. i want to do this all remotely. i don't want the people in the restaurant to have to mess with the computer at all.

i think it will be easy to remote connect (sorry, PC terms) and update the .swf's (yes, these files will be updated a lot...but they can always be named the same thing...for example: breakfast.swf). but what needs to happen is that these flash movies need to play at predetermined times (breakfast,lunch,dinner). i was referred to using Cronnix (i think it will work...haven't been able to fully play with it yet).

but, here is the bigger problem. i need a way to automatically launch an .swf in full screen (without any window borders or menus). is there a flash player that would do this? is there a way to set up the actual flash file to only play in full screen (again, without anything else on the screen)? and i guess i also need this player to always remain on top of any other window or program.

any help would be awesome. thanks in advance.
