Is there a way to add a link to the flashplayer so when I add my Flash image to the website I can also put the URL that I want the user to go to when he clicks my Flash ?

Yes, you can create a link to the page containing your flash player, and use the "Movie" querystring variable to specify the flash movie you want to play. For more information, look for the "Using QueryString items to control the FlashPlayer" section at http://www.inventua.com/dnn-flashplayer.content

Ok - I misunderstood your question. Generally speaking, the ActiveX player will "consume" any clicks on the player surface, so you can't make a flash video "clickable" as a hyperlink.

Thats what I thought, but I was hoping that I could send the new targit link with the querystring variable dynamic instead of adding the link to the flash in the flashEditor ( than the flash is used as a button )

If your flash button is capable of consuming "flashvars", then you can set the appropriate value in the flashvars textbox in the options page - but it depends on the functionality of the flash button.
