play the flv video and then move to the next frame when it's done

I am having trouble with my actionscript.

I have a first frame that shows a play button, a second frame that has a video component that plays an flv

The next frame is another button to play it again.

I'm getting hung up on making it stop on each frame, let the event occur (pushing of the button or playing of the flv) and then having it move to the appropriate frame.

Any advice?

Here is a suggestion I came across

I have a "stop();" function on the video frame to make it stop and play the video.

When I name the instance of the video component myFLV and put the following code below the "stop();" my swf just plays straight through and doesn't stop anywhere.
var listenerObject:Object = new Object();
listenerObject.complete = function(eventObject:Object):Void {
	 // sends the playhead to the begining
	 myFLV.seek(0);
	 // plays the FLV again
	 myFLV.play();
};
myFLV.addEventListener("complete", listenerObject);

I got it by looking in the help manual.

Once I got this kind of control, I just have it go back to frame one where the original play button is.
import fl.video.*;
my_FLVPlybk.source = "Day4Vlog.flv";
my_FLVPlybk.addEventListener(VideoEvent.COMPLETE, complete_listener);
// listen for complete event; play new FLV
function complete_listener(eventObject:VideoEvent):void {
    if (my_FLVPlybk.source == "Day4Vlog.flv") {
        gotoAndPlay(1);
    }
};
