switching between multiple videos
actionscript 3

I have a simple application that I want the user to be able to switch between videos on a button click.

The problem is that I cannot get the first video to stop once the second video is clicked.


import flash.events.*;

squash.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,squashClick);
function squashClick(event:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop(2);
}
okra.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,okraClick);
function okraClick(event:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop(3);
}
eggplant.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,eggplantClick);
function eggplantClick(event:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop(4);
}

each button has an instance name of squash, okra, eggplant. I add the event listener and tell it to go to a certain frame when clicked.

You just need to stop it:

myMovie.stop();

you might want to see if there is an easier implementation of your flash app so instead of having the movies on separate frames you dynamically load them with AS.
