Besides a Control Movie which I think I explained correctly the second
time you could change your movie clip's behaviour to Graphic if you
don't otherwise need to Tell Target it.

To use a MC as an animated graphic; place the MC (or animated graphic on
the main timeline with empty frames following the keyframe.
If you want to loop 5 times multiple the number of frames in your MC by
5 and subtract one (for the keyframe). This is tyhe number of empty
frames to add to the main timeline to allow an animated graphic to loop
(on the main timeline).

To change a MC's behavior to an animated graphic for looping go to its
Instance Properties (double click it on the stage) and change Behaviour
on the right to Graphic and select Loop.
