How should the player be structured?

The structure for the player is very simple:

We will end up with a control that can play media using some basic interface elements (play/pause, rewind, and a progress bar slider to position the playhead) like this:

We will then include the media-controls movie in any file that we want to control our audio media in.

This will be published as our audio SWF file which may be loaded in to any container movie.

This is the essence of the container movie:

And it doesn't get much cleaner than that!

And repeating all that once again for good luck:

From left to right: we have a media-controller SWF file sharing out our controls to a second SWF file that has our audio media in it which is loaded and displayed by a third SWF file. Get it? Got it! Good.
