how to load video behind rest of content

I am using VideoLoader to play a video on the stage. I need to then play movie clips that are description boxes of parts in the movie, over the top of the movie. However when I test the swf the movie is loading over the top of my boxes. I am using tweenlite to fade in the boxes when the movie hits cuepoints. How can I get the movie to play behind my movieclips? Here is a lump of my code so far:






var genieVid:VideoLoader = new VideoLoader("assets/GenieMovie.f4v",{container:this,width:850,height:480,scaleMode:"proportionalInside",bgColor:0x000000,autoPlay:true});



genieVid.addEventListener(VideoLoader.VIDEO_CUE_POINT, cueHere);


function cueHere(event:LoaderEvent):void


if (event.data.name == "Sec1Pause1")




TweenLite.to(p1all_mc.p1b1_mc, 1, {alpha:1, delay:1});

TweenLite.to(p1all_mc.p1b2_mc, 1, {alpha:1, delay:2});

TweenLite.to(p1all_mc.p1b3_mc, 1, {alpha:1, delay:3});


TweenLite.to(p1all_mc, 1,{alpha:0, delay:10});





/*else if(event.data.name == "Sec1Pause2")




TweenLite.to(p1all_mc.p2b1_mc, 1, {delay:1,alpha:1});

TweenLite.to(p1all_mc.p2b2_mc, 1, {delay:2,alpha:1});

TweenLite.to(p1all_mc.p2b3_mc, 1, {delay:3,alpha:1});

Whenever you define a "container" for a loader, it immediately adds it to that container with an addChild(). So if you already have your boxes (or whatever) on the stage when you create your loader, addChild() will put it on top of those. The solution is pretty simple, though - use addChildAt() to define a specific index. For example, to put it underneath everything else, do this:


var genieVid:VideoLoader = new VideoLoader("assets/GenieMovie.f4v",{width:850, height:480, scaleMode:"proportionalInside", bgColor:0x000000, autoPlay:true});
this.addChildAt(genieVid.content, 0);
