If you look at the File menu in Flash Pro there is an Export option that supports a couple of video types.
As far as the button goes I cannot offer much except to say that I think this would need to be an AIR project. It is possible to have a chromeless (no window framing) presentation of the file, but I do not know if transparency is supported. I also don't know what commands, if any, can force the window to remain on top of all others.
Thanks for the answer. For the button I was able to create an Adobe Air project, go into the xml file and change systemChrome to none (<systemChrome>none</systemChrome>) and transparent to true (<transparent>true</transparent>). This made the entire window invisible except for any objects on the stage.
Now as for the video, this isn't quite the solution I was looking for. My application will take some string from a file and translate them into actions to be displayed. You will be able to pick a file and watch the actions happen inside the flash player. But, if the user would like to keep this set of actions for later and turn it into video, I would like them to be able to do it straight from flash. I guess it would depend on how I set up the playback of the translated actions
