Music looping on flash pages?

i realize that this is perhaps the simplest of flash tasks, but search and experiment as i might, i can’t seem to come up with an efficient way to add music to flash pages.

first, i’m having trouble getting a clean loop. even though everything at the beginning and ending of the clip is clipped, there is still a significant pause in between each loop. is there anyway to fix this?

also, what are the basic codes for playing/stopping music clips?

thanks in advance for dealing with my lack of flash knowledge.
