i'm afraid you're right - the timer can not be depended on at that level of accuracy - accuracy below 10milliseconds isn't possible. it's also tied to your movie's frame rate. have a look at Colin Moock's Essential ActionScript 3.0 for more on this. I'm afraid i don't know of a way of accurately stopping an internal or progressive download sound file, although i do know when playing a sound using FMS you can specify stream length.
So what's an easy way of playing a portion of an mp3 file without a timer? For instance if I want to play an mp3 file in my app that is already downloaded and not streaming.... from let's say 1.123 seconds to 2.543 seconds?
i'm afraid i don't know of a way, sorry. or at least the easiest way would be to edit the audio file before bringing into flash(if that's possible for your application).
