you can determine the current frame of any timeline in the external swf. for example, if you want to know the current frame of the main timeline and you're using as2, use:
targetMC._currentframe; // where targetMC is the movieclip into which your external swf was loaded.
MovieClip(ldr.content).currrentFrame; // where ldr is the loader that loaded your external swf.
Thank you so much for replying... that solves this problem.
but I am stuck into another problem now. When I register onEnterFrame to the movie holder to drag the progress bar, the movie stops playing and the execution stuck in the onEnterFrame in a loop .
Can you tell me how to create a progress bar for my player?
you can create a play-progress and load-progress bar for any movieclip/timeline. which are you trying to create and for which movieclip?
I want to create a play-progress bar for my external movie clip
