Control .AVI playback in the movie

Control .AVI playback in the movie

Control .AVI playback in the movie


I'm a total beginner, so sorry if I'm asking a stupid question, but I've been googling for two hours now on and can't find the answer.
My problem is: I imported a movie into the cast, it's a DivX movie. I placed it on the Stage and it's playing fine, as soon as I start the movie. What I'm stuck on is playback control. I'd like to be able to pause the movie by clicking on it.
I tried to add a new behavior, named "Pause" with a script like this:

on mouseUp me
end mouseUp

but whenever I click the video I get an error stating that handler was not found in object.

Could anyone give me some hints?


RE: Control .AVI playback in the movie

OK, I found some suggestions to use .wmv instead, I converted my clip and now everything's working great.
Still I wondr - why isn't it possible to control divx in the same way? Or is it?
