Having problems with stopping sound

Hello Sunday ppl :o)

I have created a sound stop and play button with an animation. It runs in the same swf as the rest of the website (all the links are just on different frames). The thing works fine, but if one presses stop it only stops while being on the same page one made it stop, as soon as one goes to another link, the sound starts anew. Do you know how it will remain switched off when the user presses stop without loading the sound in an external swf or would that be the only way?

one of the links also load from an external swf and there the sound doesn’t start again when stop is pressed, but I don’t want to put every single link in an external swf… too much work now.

Thx for any advice…
