Can a button jump ahead to a specific point on the timeline? (without going to another slide)

I have a one slide project, with a one-minute multi-slide synchronized video. I have two buttons that appear after 10-seconds, and pause the slide/video. If the user clicks button A, the action is set to 'continue' and the slide/video begins to play from where it left off. HOWEVER, if the user clicks button B, I want the action to jump the user ahead on the timeline to the 45-second mark. Is there a way to accomplish this using advanced actions?

Yes, with micro-navigation, which means you use the cpCmndGotoFrameAndResume system variable and you'll have to calculate the frame number, which can be done with the same advanced action. Frame numbers start with 0. More info about Micro-navigation:

Hi again,

My project is working perfectly (across multiple browsers) using the micro-navigation technique you suggested but ONLY when I publish to Flash. I recently published the project to HTML5 and tested in EI, Safari and Chrome; none work as expected. Do browsers not fully support the "cpCmndGotoFrameAndResume" action when publishing to HTML5? Please help!
