Flash VCR

Is there a way to control a movie imported in FLASH MX?

For example, after having imported a movie in Flash, and having placed several buttons, one can play the movie at a push of a button, pause it at a push of a button, rewind and / or fast forward?

Sorta like a VCR

You mean a real movie, like avi, mpeg or quicktime?
I think there’s a tut’ on that up at Flashkit?..
put the movie in it’s own clip! supposing that clip is called movieClip :
rewind btn= movieClip. gotoAndStop(1); //1st frame
stop btn: movieClip.stop();
and so on…if i remember well…
