I have an urgent problem that I've been staring myself blind at and I can't resolve it myself, I must be overlooking something because I think this one should be quite easy.

I've loaded an external sound into a dynamically created movieclip but I can't seem to control the volume which is the last parameter I need to be able to control. I've set the volume to 0 but it still plays at 100%. Test the script using/changing your own loadSound parameter.

Here's my script:

      //Create dynamic MC and load sound
                  this.createEmptyMovieClip("soundMc1", this.getNextHighestDepth());
                  //Creacte new sound object inside MC
                  var sound1:Sound = new Sound(soundMc1);
                  //Set volume
                  //Set what happens when sound is finished playing - unload MC from stage
                  sound1.onSoundComplete = function() {
                        trace("soundMc1 unloaded");
                  }//onSoundComplete function
                  //Load sound - streaming false
                  sound1.loadSound(YOUR-SOUND-HERE, false);
                  //Check that sound loaded completely before playing
                  sound1.onLoad = function(success:Boolean):Void {
                  if (success) {
                  }// if success
      }//onLoad function

This topic is extremely urgent and will reward 500 points.
