Mouseover to pause swf movie, mouseout to resume while having other buttons linking to web urls

I'm looking to create a movie with the same functionality as seen on http://www.mobilephonexchange.co.uk/ where the phones are scrolling at the bottom.

I've no idea on how to get the mouseover pause and mouseout resume to work while having all of the phones linking to urls. I've tried using an invisible button method over the whole movie where it controls the pause/resume however I cant overlay buttons on this that will link to urls.

Help would be greatly appreciated!
