OK... I've got a pre-made movieclip that I want to add an .SWF into and then control with a scrubber bar. I can load the swf fine... but then how do I access the loaded swf?

I'm loading an external .SWF into a pre-existing movie clip. How do I access that swf? The answer I saw doesn't quite do it for me...

what was that answer?  

you reference that movieclip by dot syntax with the path of the clips as a reference...  like this...

clipSWFwasLoadedInto.SWFItemNeededToAccess.play();  // play is an arbitrary method... use your own.
