Flash Video Question

I am looking at using Flash for instructional web videos, but am wondering about downloadable files.

When viewing a Flash video, does it get stored in cache so when viewing it again it does not have to be re-downloaded, thus not incurring additional bandwidth charges?

If so, is there any way around this?

I know with Quick Time, files can be set up to be stored in cache, so there is only "one" download.

This certainly would make a big difference, particularly with material that needs to be viewed numerous times, i.e. sports instructional video clips.

Thanks for any thoughts.

You right click on the video to set the properties. One of them concerns the cache size.
