it actually simple as pie. it's the startDrag() call. don't use _root to call this. Go back to the mp3 player file and replace _root with this._parent or whatever the relative path turns out to be until it works without the _root. then go back to the file where you are trying to load the mp3 player into and it should work perfectly.
Thanks for the help!
I am not that good with flash...what do you mean by relative path?
Also I change the _root to _parent and that didn't change anything.
In case this helps, in the time line of the movie clip in the new .fla file that I am trying to add the MP3 player to I have used a blank key frame to add all of the MP3's buttons, movie clips, and coding.
Thanks again for the help
say you have a movie clip on the main timeline called player. inside player is another movie clip called stop_btn
your movie heirarchy would be like this
player can access the main timeline one of two ways.
absolute path _root
stop_btn can access the main timeline one of two ways. absolute path or relative path...
absolute path would be _root
relative path would be this._parent._parent
Determine the heirarchy of your player from within it's own swf file first. Map it out on paper if necessary. After you've mapped it out, build the relative path back to it's main timeline. Once you've done that, export the movie again and load it into the other movie. The player's volume control should be working again.
I just want to let you know that you are my hero...
That worked perfectly. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain that.
