    Controlling Captivate 4 (AS3) swf's with flex 3

    Ron Pasch Level 1
      With Captivate 4 you can publish your movies in AS3.

      With Flex I can use SWFLoader to embed these Captivate movies in flex.

      How can I control the Captivate 4 swf with Flex? Flex is AS3 ofcourse and I also published the Captivate 4 project using AS3 settings.

      What I need to do is be able to pause and resume the Captivate movie from Flex using AS3, but how?

          I think the Captivate docs will include details of what their API is.
          However, it might assume control from a web page so you might need to go out
          to ExternalInterface and back in.
