Perhaps you can apply 'sequence' on it.
Does you swf require a play button? is it a video flash player?
No play button required. I just wanted it to run as part of the page, its only on the screen for 15 seconds. I tried Sequence and alas' didn't work.
If your swf is just a linear sequence, how about converting it to an .flv. You can then use the "Auto Play" video property and the "On Video Play Complete" Interaction. This will allow you to auto play the video and then use the "On Video Play Complete" Interaction to play a Transition to another page once the video is over.
Hope this helps.
And thanks for the reply. I decided to make the video run continuously on the page which means when the page is viewed a second time, its still running giving the desired effect. Not the way I initially wanted it to look but it actually works in previews nicely.
Thanks again for ther input
