.swf Controller / Timeline Control

Hi, looking for some guidance/advice on a project I am working on. I am creating a Flash movie that is quite a complex looping cycle, within that movie there are a number of other movies looping. I need to find a way of stopping all the movies at once and then restarting them at the same place, as the movie will be used to explain a process with someone presenting it.

A media player/component that handles swf’s would be ideal if any one knows of any? My AS skills are pretty basic so and I guess it isn’t going to be an easy solution with AS.

Any suggestions much appreciated.
