          button.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, stopplay);
          function stopplay(event:MouseEvent):void
          button2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, stopper);
          function stopper(event:MouseEvent):void
          See above.
          1. drop your mc on the timeline, have 2 buttons on your timeline [one to play, one to stop]
          2. make your buttons have an instance name (I did names as button and button2)
          3. on a top layer for your Actionscript, put the above code in and plug in the necessary info.
          4. plug in wording above with your instanceName, functionName, and symbol Name. Italicized stuff (shown in my example above, don't do in actual coding) is code you word or you can use my wording.
          5. test3 is the movie instance name of the movie you'll have to control. Again, name it however you want.
          Summary: You're creating two buttons, each having instance names, that tell a mc to play and another to stop.
