Flash 8 Pro - I need the script for 6 buttons to play different parts of cue point embeded streaming movie

Posted on 2007-08-12

Hi, I am using Flash 8 Pro with Flash Media Encoder on Windows XP.
I have an encoded movie for which it has 6 embedded navigation cue points; I would like 6 custom buttons (which will eventually sit on top of part of my movie; each having an ability to jump to part of the movie and automatically play their designated section of the movie before stoping.

Users will be greeted with a static greeting image which will be used as 'home' and can be returned to.
The other 5 buttons will each have a small sequence/situation to play where they each will stop on there own designated scene after they have run their course.

Possible useful points:

My movie will end up being streamed from either our own streaming server or a streaming server service.

I have had a play with embedded navigation cue points found located at
The Adobe live documents site but they stop short of helping me with what I am trying to do.

Fully appreciate anyone who guide me here.

    Then you need 6 frames in your scene. Each is the cue point.
    Paste the following actions for each button:

    on (release) {

    where 1 is the number of the frame you want to jump to.

    You need to paste this action in your first frame:


    or it will start to play your frames one by one.

    You can even create dedicated scene for each of the cue point, it doesn't matter, but I recommend you to do it in a single scene, it will ease the layers management and other stuff.
