So I have this PHP page and this flash movie. I want to make it so the flash pulls the info from the php file, (or if I have to convert it, to whatever I have to convert it to.) How would I do this?

What you want to do is have the PHP script print/echo out the variables you want to feed into flash, just like you would if you were feeding the actionscript a text file...

just incase you're not 100% familiar with this practice, here's some information on sending data to actionscript from a text file:


http://www.actionscripts.org/tutorials/beginner/loadVariables_and_loadVars/index.shtml

so your .txt file is going to look something like this:

name=Samantha&hobby=flash&email_address=Samantha@guesswho.com


To feed the same exact variables to flash via php, you'd do the following:



<?php

#
# lets say this file is called "php_variables.php"
##############

$name = "Samantha";

$hobby = "flash";

$email_address = "Samantha@guesswho.com";

echo <<<end;
name=$name&hobby=$hobby&email_address=$email_address
end;

?>

Now back to your actionscript, you'd do the following:
loadVariables("http://www.yoursite.com/directory/php_variables.php", this);

I'm assuming you have a good understanding of loading variables into flash from a .txt file. If l'm wrong and you need more assistance or help, please feel free to post right back!
