Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding custom video controls, part of Creating a First Web Site with Flash Professional CS5.
Once you've imported your video, you might realize that you want to integrate…the video into the design of the site.…And that's where I am at here with this video here.…So I am going to double-click on it.…And what that does is that brings me inside of this About background movie clip.…And that's where my video exists.…Okay, so it's not really integrated on to the TV quite right for one.…And another thing is that I am not crazy about all these video controls.…So I really want to customize this.…
One thing I can do when it comes to customization is I can change the color of…these video controls.…I can do that by looking at my component parameters.…So I can sort of select maybe a closer match to these flowers for instance if I want to.…Or I can change this skin entirely as well.…So if I click that pencil I can go ahead and pick a different skin.…But again there might be cases where none of these skins are really working for you.…
And they are quite frankly not really working for my design.…So I am going to select None.…

A: To make it disappear, just make sure the progress bar is only in frame 1. If it’s on its own layer, then right-click on the 2nd frame in that same layer and select "Insert Blank Keyframe." That will make it disappear.
Q: Despite following the steps in the "Adding a progress bar" video, I cannot figure out how to keep the progress bar from appearing on a movie that has finished loading. How can I make the progress bar disappear?
A: Just add the red line below to the preloader.fla file. This will make the progress bar invisible:
