I'm using AS3 with flash cs3. I've followed a tutorial to get my buttons to play an audio file. Is it possible to get these button to play, stop and pause my video file (movie symbol, instance name play.swf) along with the audio? Any help would be appreciated.

sure, you just need to target the video mc and tell it to do what you want,

i'm assuming your using netstream to play an external flv file.  Just add

_root.pathtovideo_mc.NetStreamObjectName.pause()

_root.video_mc.ns.pause();

To the button function call to toggle pause/play  .stop() to stop,

But you can add any function calls you like to the button as long as the target path is correct, and you remember the function is executed in the button, even if you attach the function from the first frame of the root movie clip.
