Hi Miguel,

You can always put the sound in another HTML document and have Flash get
the URL into another frame (you might want to use a hidden frame for this).
See Colin's tutorial on opening a pop-up window.
http://www.moock.org/webdesign/flash/ for how to use the hidden frame
routine. Requires JavaScript. To turn off the sound, use Get URL to replace
the other frame with a blank document.

You could use that same technique for playing Beatnik files, too, and use
Flash to control Beatnik's playback using FS Command and Javascript, I
believe. Nigel has information on this at
http://members.tripod.com/NigelR/. Once you get through the detection pages
for Flash4 and Beatnik plug-ins, mouse over "ab Jove principium" and then
select "Beatnik."
