thanks for the response. It's been so long since i've used flash.
I've added the line flv.skinAutoHide=true to the action properties but it doesn't change anything when i publish - the skin doesn't auto hide.

thanks for the input!

thanks anyway for the directions!

i use cs4, my movie is for AS 3.0, my skin is "SkinOverPlay.swf".
what else might be to take care of?
thanks in advance!
