Wait until flash animation is finished

I intend to have a php page with a flash animation displayed. I would like the php (or html) page to change to another php/html page once the flash animation is complete - like a slide show.

How could I get the php page to wait until the flash animation is complete?

    I have a much simpler (and probably more reliable) method - put the Flash content in charge of when the page changes.

    At the end of the Flash presentation, just get the Flash movie to launch the new page with a single line of actionscript.

    If you need examples of the actionscript to use, please say whether your Flash content uses actionscript 2 or actionscript 3.
