Controlling Sounds in Flash

Hi there,

I have this problem in my website. I have my main SWF with a streaming audio[a looping sound] embedded in HTML. I have links on this SWF file which open up new SWF File. I am planning to include a MP3 Player in this link. My Problem lies here. How do I control{Pause} the looping sound that runs on the background of my main page when I am playing my songs from the SWF File that contains the MP3 Player.

Anyone out there who can help me with this… Thanks
