Need to add a seek bar / scrubber to an SWF Movie using AS3

I'm relatively new to flash and I'm trying to add a seek bar / scrub bar to an SWF movie using AS3. I've scoured the web and have found many ways to do it using AS2 but I absolutely have to use AS3.

Here's an example of what I'm trying to do, if you look in the lower left hand corner you'll see a scrubber that lets you scrub through the movie, that's what I need.

The following thread explains how to add the scrub bar shown in the link above however I'm unable to follow:

I really don't know much about flash so if you could please explain very clearly or possibly provide an FLA file that would be great! Thanks in advance.
