I have a swf imported as video and have added in video controls in the video options in articulate but they don't seem to control the swf. Also I have put in a trigger to pause the video at the beginning but it doesn't seem to be working either. 

any help gratefully received.

You said you have imported a swf as video. Does that mean the video is embedded in the swf ? If that's the case the swf would behave as a dumb object, pardon my phrase. SL cannot communicate with flash directly. You would need to put the movie controllers into the swf. However if you saved the swf as a video file such as mp4 it would fill the timeline and you can control that easily.

Hope that helps,
