Who knows a thing or two about Flash...?

Okay, so I'm building my flash site and I want to include some streaming Quicktime videos. I want the to be able to click on a thumbnail image and have the video load in a separate window sized to the video without a toolbar or scrollbar. Does anyone know how to do this...I'm learning flash as I go.

Thanks alot,

You have to first make the image a symbol and then put some script on it to open a new URL in a new window. Try looking up help in Flash about the getURL method (kind of like how you setup A HREF in HTML). If you don't know how to do any of this yet, go through all of the tutorials that comes with Flash to get up to speed first. Let me know if you need more help. You might have to jam some javascript in there to do exactly what you want. I used something like the following on a symbol button:

getURL("javascript:window.open(\"filepathwithfilename\",\"\",\"toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,st atus=0,scrollbars=no,copyhistory=0, height=300, width=400\")");

I was just trying stuff out and left it on my site unlinked so you can see what it does, just skip the intro and go to the video section:
