I'm making an interactive film. At certain points within the film, the viewer has the ability to select from a few options that will direct them to an external video clip (they are flashback scenes). The main story pauses when the user selects a flashback scene and I'm clear on how to achieve this.

However, my issue is that once the flashback scene ends and the external video closes, I'm not sure how the main story will resume. Is it possible for it to auto-play (resume) in some way? My last resort would be to have the viewer select a play button - this is only because I do not want a break in the narrative and want to limit the amount of clicks the viewer has to make.

Basically, I really just want to know if what I want to achieve is realistic without making the viewer initiate the action. Any suggestions and comments would be greatly appreciated.

you said "auto play" is the viewer watching an flv file or is it a timeline animation?
