Chapter 12. Working with Video > Controlling Video Through Movie Clips

Controlling Video Through Movie Clips

While it’s an easy matter to drag a video file onto the Stage and then use start and stop ActionScripts to control the playing of the video, it’s better to create a movie clip, and then load the video file into the clip. It’s a bit more work, but the additional rewards are great. For example, you can instruct a movie clip to stop playing without affecting anything else on the Stage. As a matter of fact, you can have as many movie clips on the Stage as you want, and each one can be controlled individually. It’s exactly that kind of control that leads to awesome Flash movies. To control a video using a movie clip you will need to have a flash document that contains one or more video files, in the Library.
