You could place the movie clip onto a layer in the _root (or whichever
timeline you want to call it from).

Set the first frame of your movie clip to be blank, add a "stop();" action
to the first frame, and label the frame "paused".

The content can begin on the second frame, which you might label "startHere"

So from the main timeline, you attach this script to the button

on (release) {

To make the movie disappear, attach this script to the button "x".

on (release) {

Something along those lines should work.
