Hi guys, can anyone tell me how to do this properly? I have Flash CS5.

    My guess is that you would have to embed the YouTube embed tag into the HTML page in a separate DIV butted against your Flash content so that it appears seamless.  YouTube in itself either uses HTML5 video or Flash Video which is an embedded Flash Video.  I don't think you can embed HTML code within a div in AS 3.0 .  You can use such things as navigateToURL or if you can obtain the YouTube video you can encode it as an FLV and embed the video using your own custom video skin or one of the default Flash skins.


    But I am only postulating here.  Someone else with more video experience on web pages might chime in here.
