I've been trying all day to acheive this and was unable to do
it, so I hope someone knows the answer for this. I have a swf file
I want to load into my ActionScript class and I need to be able to
load this movie so I can actually use it as a movie clip (play,
stop, gotoAndPlay, gotoAndStop, set parameters, etc...). I've been
trying to use the Loader class but it always fetch me a AVM1 Movie,
so there is nothing I can do with it.
The thing is.... I thought that the problem was that the
particular swf movie I'm trying to load was compiled with flash 8,
so I was thinking, OK it actually is an AVM1 movie, so it's natural
to get this. That's why I downloaded the flash 9 preview and tryed
And OH Surprise, the loaderInfo tells me ITS OK, you've got a
Action Script 3 Movie, version 9, but the Loader class keeps giving
me a AVM1 movie that I can't convert to a MovieClip Class....
now... the Documentation says something like "For player 8 or older
you get an AVM1 movie", I thought it was a typo, but I guess it's
So here I am, still with the problem.... how do I get this
swf into a MovieClip class?
