That's unnecessarily complicated; you don't need to do anything in the HTML file.  All you need is:

this.btn.addEventListener("mouseover", over.bind(this));

function over()

{

  this.mc.gotoAndPlay("over");

}

this.btn.addEventListener("mouseout", out.bind(this));

function out()

{

  this.mc.gotoAndPlay("out");

}

Update instance names (in red) as needed, and within the movie clip, set up frame labels called "over" and "out".

Working example here: Dropbox - overout

This worked for me with a movieclip button:

HTML
Placed three things in the HTML file:

<body onload="init();" style="margin:0px;">

  <a href="http://www.google.nl">  <!--1. A link-->

       <div id="banner" style="cursor:pointer;"> <!--2. A div-->

            <canvas id="canvas" width="336" height="280" style="display: block; background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 1.00)"></canvas>    

       </div>

  </a>

  <!--3. A script-->

  <script type="text/javascript">

  var canvas = document.getElementById("canvas");

  var w = canvas.width;

  var h = canvas.height;

  var banner = document.getElementById("banner");

  banner.addEventListener("mouseover", function(){document.rollOverFunction();});

  banner.addEventListener("mouseout", function(){document.rollOutFunction();});

  </script>

</body>

Timeline

Placed this in the first frame of the animation:

document.rollOverFunction = function () {

  exportRoot.cta.gotoAndPlay(2);

}

document.rollOutFunction = function () {

  exportRoot.cta.gotoAndPlay(16);

}

Button timeline

Frame 1 is the normal state of the button. It stops until it gets rollOver'd.

Frame 1-15 is the mouse-over animation. It stops with this.stop();
Frame 16-30 is the mouse-out animation.

I'm having an issue with this not working after the first rollover when exported for HTML5. Any thoughts? I assume it's the frame difference with actionscript and html but your example works fine when I view the HTML document but when I export your example as is to HTML5 the rollover breaks after the first try.

Everything is greyed out when I try. The frame labels were throwing it and my simple fix because I'm moving quickly was to put in frame numbers vs the labels and it's working the same.

You need to add stage.enableMouseOver(); if you want to add rollovers to MovieClips. 

(It's generated automatically with button symbols).

I am not sure my question actually went to you Emma. I am trying to use your code for rollovers but asking it to gotoandplay a frame label. Is this possible? I am not having any luck.
