Assuming you have an instance of the FLV component in your library named FLVPlayback, the following code will dynamically add an instance to the stage, play the flv, and when complete, remove the flv component and goto frame 10.

If you search for flv in the Flash help you will find reference to other parameters for the flv component such as auto hiding skin, autoplay etc.

And obviously you will have to change the sizing, positioning and naming parameters to suit your needs.
import mx.video.*;
_root.attachMovie("FLVPlayback", "my_FLVPlybk", 1, {width:400, height:300, x:10, y:10});
 
_root.my_FLVPlybk.width = 400;
_root.my_FLVPlybk.height = 300;
_root.my_FLVPlybk.contentPath = "movie.flv";
_root.my_FLVPlybk.skin = "steeloverall.flv";
 
var listener = new Object();
listener.complete = function(evt)
{
  removeMovieClip(_root.my_FLVPlybk);
gotoAndPlay(10);
}
_root.my_FLVPlybk.addEventListener( "complete", listener );

Open in new window

O.k. What would be the reference if I am loadiing the swf to a container swf.. I want the gotoandplay to be in the loaded movie.swf timeline and not the container swf. see the following site and video load as an example...It has to be something other than root. to you know?
