Or the other side of this is:
Is there a better way to play audio continuously from state to state, while still keeping the player invisible and having a customized toggle button available to play and pause it? Something I should add:
The file is composed of 2 pages/states only. The flv audio begins in the first page along with an flv intro video. The audio then carries over to the 2nd page after the video finishes and and the page transitions . The toggle button only becomes visible in the second page after a move-in.
I just really need to figure out how to make this toggle button work properly.
It might be too late by now ... but I had the same question.
And found the answer on pages 150-154 of the Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5 Classroom in a Book here: http://my.safaribooksonline.com/book/web-development/flash/9780321718129/adding-and-contro lling-video-and-sound/153
It talks about putting a toggle button and video (with the controls turned off) both into a custom/generic component.
In this component you basiclly create two states ... one with the video paused and one with the video playing. You then set interactions on the toggle button to play video when in one state and pause in the 2nd state. You can also control the appearance between the two states .e.g make the button transparent when video is in play state ... clever stuff!
Hope that helps ... or others with the same problem.
