hi happyfax.

did the geturl command work for you?

i have a similar problem. when using the geturl command flash asks if you want the file to open in the current browser window or a new one. i don't want the wmv to open in a browser window at all - i just want it to open in windows media player and play entirely seperately from the flash movie but don't seem to be able to do this.

does anyone know if this is a flash issue or do i need to go poking around in javascript or something?

any help appreciated.
