Placing a movie into a button

I would like a button to play a movie on it’s rollover…how’s that made???


there’s two ways you could go about doing this: one being you can place a movie clip in the OVER state of the button or you can build a clip and have the button control the movie through actionscript.

Personaly, I find the latter to be more useful. There is a tutorial on this effect in the Kirupa main section.…target.asp

If it’s a little confusing, check out my 101 tutorials at I detail there the very basics of what movie clips are and how buttons may manipulate them.
