    targeting an FLVplayback component within a nested movie element

    donstmars

      I'm trying to get my own buttons to load FLV movies into the FLVplayback component. I've got it to work in a simple test but need help making it work on a more complex level. The test is here http://lawrencejonespromoprince.com/testvideo.html

       

      I've named the FLVplayback instance 'my_video'

       

      The simple buttons have this script in the actions:

       

      on (release) {

            my_video.load("videonamehere.flv");

            my_video.autoPlay=true;

      }

       

      This all works great as long as the buttons and the FLVplayback component are on the same frame on the same page. But for the actual use, i need it to work where the buttons are on a nested page within another movie element. So the nest looks like this:

       

      Scene1   Nestmovie1   Nestmovie2   Nestmovie3

       

      ...where the FLVplayback component is in Nestmovie2 and the buttons are in Nestmovie3.

       

      The nesting was needed so the buttons are on a separate slider panel so i can scroll through the list of movies.

      See the actual flash site in progress here http://lawrencejonespromoprince.com/index2.html

      and the movie list (not done) will be on the 30 Promos page.

       

      So now the question is, how can i target the FLVplayback instance within a nested movie.

       

      Thanks
