You can simply create framework in flash with different butttons. Then these button will call your AVI, SCM movies with fscommand.

Otherwise convert AVI or SCM movies into quicktime movie and import all track into flash then try to play.

You can send javascript or vbscript call, routines, function to your web page from flash movie with the help of fscommands and vise versa.

This means you can control or communicate with other plugin in browser, ActiveX controls. Also from plugins or ActiveX controls you can cantrol flash movies.

So with these commands you can simply call AVI or SCM movies and they will play with associated programs.

For converting AVI into Quicktime, you will get number of thirdparty tools like as

1. Adobe Premiere for Windows
2. http://www.downrecs.com/software.html   "TRMOOV.EXE"
3. Intel has a program, SmartVid, which will convert files without regard to the codec used
4. The Mac-based solution is a tool from Horizons Technology
5. http://www.video2flash.com/swf/console/
6. http://www.geocities.com/vid2swf/
