Flash projector that uses XML for local assets with cool player effects

I found a cool Flash projector that loads images, FLVs, and PDFs from local assets in folders for each keyframe on the stage, using XML. The FLVs play with the Flash Media Player, but the images show with what I’ve seen previously in HTML using JavaScript where the screen grays out and the images appear over the stage. The Apple vs. Adobe battle has kept me out of the Flash presentation scene for a while, and I wondered if anyone can recommend a sample source file or tutorial for me to try building? Thanks!
