I am using the movie15 package to add a swf movie to my presentation, but I do not like that when it finishes playing, it leaves a blank placeholder. Is it possible to configure it so that it shows the first frame of the movie before being played, and after it finishes playing the movie.

\begin{frame}[t]\frametitle{Third Slide}

Any help appreciated.

The poster option does this.


I haven't tried it for swf files though.
