Add controler for actionscript-controlled stream

please how to add some custom components or components-like progress bar and buttons to actionscript-controlled video in flash mx/flash8 ?
I mean I have been doing a simple streaming animation in Flash MX with some actionscripted buffering methods nad dont like to get rid of that in favour of components in Flash 8, I need just to somehow link some controller to my video …
Please…anybody ?
