    Ending Video on timeline

    This maybe as easy as using a stop(); But looking for best way.

    I want my video to play once and stop as a still at the end of the video. Instead it snaps back to the beginning of the video, leaving the viewer with the frame from the beginning. The video doesn't start over because I put a stop(); in the timeline.

    Do I just move the stop(); up on the timeline? Or is there a better way to control this?

    Any input would be appreciated.

    If you are embedding your video then putting a stop() on the timeline is the only way to stop the video.

    It's a .flv component coming in from the server. Does this open up any other options?

    A flv loading externally shouldn't replay when it's done. Is it replaying?

    The default Flash movie component that loads to the stage when importing a .flv from a server, I guess.

    No, not replaying. It stops displaying the beginning of the .flv content. As if it's going back ready to play again.

    Here's an example. Video of a standing man getting ready to talk. The man starts talking and has a particular facial expression. He stops talking and has a facial expression when the video ends. Thats when I want it to stop, but video goes back to the beginning expression. It doesn't replay.

    The original .mov that was encoded doesn't do that, so I'm not sure why.
