Description

Experience Level: Expert
I have an HTML page created using Dreamweaver CS3 which contains a single SWF movie placed using Flash CS3 (movie duration 9min57secs).
I have deliberately excluded the addition of a skin and the movie is in a Pause condition when the page opens.
Within the HTML I have a Javascript function which produces a duration value 'x'. (which is an integer of milliseconds)

My requirement is that I wish to pass this duration value to the Flash video in such a way as to instruct the video to resume play and then (after 'x' milliseconds duration) pause the playback and await the next resume instruction from Javascript.

I am aware that Javascript and Actionscript (AS3) can pass instructions to and from one another using ExternalInterface.add Callback and ExternalInterface.call, however, all the tutorials and forum examples I have studied and viewed to date show only how to pass text, or to run a very short video to its end and invariably they all involve the use of a button to instigate the function.

This functionality is key to my project and may lead to further developement work.
