            I have used Camtasia Studio for exactly this purpose.

                  Sorry about the delay. I used:
                  <mx:VideoDisplay id="helpVideoDisplay" width="500" height="{helpVideoDisplay.width*3/4}" autoPlay="false"
                  complete="stopHelpVideo()" maintainAspectRatio="true" borderStyle="solid"
                  playheadUpdate="updateProgress(event)" progress="updateDataLoaded(event)"
                  stateChange="stateChangeHandler(event)"/>

                  Things to note: The VideoDisplay uses FLV, which can be generated by Camtasia during the publish proceedure. Also keep in mind that you have to make all the controls from scratch, ie., the play and stop buttons, a progress indicator, amount buffered, etc. That what all of the event handler functions are for.
