Re: how to create link from a button to play video

Put a button on your scene, and give it the instance name but in the Property Panel. Create a new layer in your movie and name it code Now add this code to the first frame of the code layer: but.onPress = function () { _root.createEmptyMovieClip("container", 1); loadMovie("loaded.swf", "container"); container._x = 150 ; container._y = 20 ; }
