    Variables I just can't get right!!

    Hi All
    I figured this would be easy but for some reason I can't get it right.

    I have a movie clip that loads a video and streams it. But what I want to do is have the video stream first time but second time it is loaded to go to a stop position.

    I have defined a variable x=1; in a movie clip called movieVar - and on the button that calls the video.swf I have put


    Now in the video .swf on frame 1 I have put:

    if(_root.movieVar.x >= 2){
    gotoAndStop("videoStop" );

    When I first load the video.swf the x variable in movieVar says 'undefined' but when I click the button again to load it it does give it a value of 1 - and then I press again and it goes to 2.

    So why is it saying undefined when the button is pressed for the first time?

    Any ideas where I am going wrong?

    All help much appreciated.
