I made a timer that counts down from 5-0 how can I add that into a video clip in the beginning so that when you click on the video. it starts the count down and then shows the clip.

You could use a redirect to time with your counter.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<script language="JAVASCRIPT">
setTimeout("top.location.href = 'http://domian.com/'",5000);
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">

The ,5000 is the time laps. It is set to 5 seconds.

import your movie into flash and play it from there

create a new scene and move it so the new scene plays first

add your count down to the new scene

when your count down has finished the flash play head will auto play the next scene which contains your movie

da-daaaa...... :)
