Loading MPEG videos


I’m trying to create an interface through Flash MX and i’ve been trying to find ways to load and play MPEG video files.

My first approach was to import and convert them to SWF files and use LOADMOVIE to play them. But it simply takes to long to convert, save and load from loadmovie.

Any other suggestions? Any way to simply tell flash to “play” the MPEG file itself using whatever is the associate player in the machine? Can I use fscommand for that? How (please indicate specific syntax).
