Chapter 14. Adding Sound and Video > Using Embedded Video Clips in Your Movie

Using Embedded Video Clips in Your Movie

Embedded video clips bear similarities to other symbols, yet they are a distinct and unique type of element. As with bitmaps, you can update video clips, automatically bringing in a new copy of a file you edited with an external editor. Like graphic animation symbols, video clips play within—and must synchronize with—frames within the main movie Timeline. Like sound clips, video clips can contain audio, although you cannot see the sound’s waveform in the Timeline. If you place video clips within Flash movie clip symbols, you give the video an independent Timeline, and you gain the full control over the video-clip object that you have over movie-clip objects.

As with any symbol, you place an instance of a video clip by dragging a copy from the Library window to the Stage. The Property Inspector gives you information about selected instances of embedded video clips.
