    Removing a movieClip

    happydog52

      Hello

       

      I have a movie that I want to use to display videos from YouTube. I put this action on a button to load the first movie:

           on (release) {
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("video_mc",10000);
      _root.video_mc._x=105
      _root.video_mc._y=105
      _root.video_mc.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/lsyelAUH6pI");
      }

       

      I put a similar action on a second button to load another movie and it does but the first movie continues to play:

      on (release) {
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("video_mc",10000);
      _root.video_mc._x=105
      _root.video_mc._y=105
      _root.video_mc.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/fZCgAc4UMeM");
      }

       

      I searched several forums and tried this:

      on (release) {
      _root.video_mc.swapDepths(600);
      _root.video_mc.removeMovieClip();
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("video_mc",10000);
      _root.video_mc._x=105
      _root.video_mc._y=105
      _root.video_mc.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/fZCgAc4UMeM");
      }

      but it doesn't work. I would very much appreciate any help with this as I am out of my depth here. Thanks.
