View Full Version : trying to make swf with stop(); in first frame

03-23-2012, 01:14 AM
Hello, (I am not as familiar with flash as I thought I was).

I have a swf which has a skin with controls. The problem is that when I put it up on a web page, it automatically starts playing, which I do not want.
I am not familiar enough to control it using javascript.

In a folder I have the swf, flv & fla so I am trying to put a stop(); in the first frame. No luck.

When I open the the fla file using Flash, I see the movie in the work area.
There is only one frame (as it must be the movie).
I had hoped that if I put a stop action in frame one, that the movie would not play when I hit cont/enter, but it does.

If anyone could help I would desperately appreciate it! Buffmin

do you have the .fla? can you attach it and I'll take a look. The stop action should be working, but let me see

Thank you so much. I will attach the fla and flv. Thanks very much.

trying to figure out how to attach.?

I don't see that fla is a valid file to attach.
Can I possibly email you my 4 files? fla,flv,swf(existing) and SkinOverPlaySeekMute.swf ?
