Redirecting to a new URL after a Flash File has finished... How to

I have a web site that starts with an intro... www.utcdemoderby.com. I can't seem to figure a way to automaticly redirect to a specific URl when the flash file is done playing.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

is it a simple case of when the flash reaches the last frame its' done?
what are you using AS3 or AS2?
in the former - URLRequest

package {
    import flash.display.Sprite;
    import flash.net.navigateToURL;
    import flash.net.URLRequest;
    import flash.net.URLVariables;

    public class URLVariablesExample extends Sprite {

        public function URLVariablesExample() {
            var url:String = "http://www.[yourDomain].com/application.jsp";
            var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
            var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
            variables.exampleSessionId = new Date().getTime();
            variables.exampleUserLabel = "guest";
            request.data = variables;
            navigateToURL(request);
        }
    }
}


in the latter - getURL("http://www.google.co.za", "_blank");

Yes, I just want it to redirct once the last frame of the flash is reached.

I am using AS3.

Can you help me decide where this goes in my code?
getURL("http://www.google.co.za", "_blank");

in AS3 you can't use getURL.
your code needs to go into the flash not the JS/HTML to embed the flash.

Hi
This is exactly what I've been looking for, but I tried blue-genie's AC3 script and this error kicked back when I was  converting the fla to a swf:
1037: packages cannot be nested.

I made a keyframe at the end of the movie and Flash added the customary additional frames which totaled the entire timeline to 264 (those adidtional frames came out as repeat stills of the last frame. I  entered the code with my desired url at the keyframe (137)

Suggestons?
