I'm noticing some unexpected behavior. Some time in the last few months, a change in either Firefox, the Flash player, or both, has made it so that Flash movies that are in inactive browser tabs no longer execute in real time. They appear to still execute, but only in bursts, and not in a predictable way. This is a problem because I develop a Flash-based (Actionscript 2.0, Flash CS3) multiplayer game that maintains a network connection and allows players to chat, etc.
I have a video, 14 minutes long, at various times, I need to load information for a few seconds, and then unload it.At the moment, I'm doing it all in the timeline which works fine, however I'm limited by 16,000 keyframes which for the last video, was about 7 minutes (full video was 9).Is there a way to load and unload in 1 long action script file at the beginning of the video? eg (not actual code btw)
at 4 seconds, load 1.swf into container1 at 14 seconds, unload 1.swf from container1 at 16 seconds, load 2.swf into container1
I created a simple Flash app that shows a menu on the side with 2 movie choices. Each movie choice is supposed to play a different movie. The whole thing works just fine on my local machine but when I upload to the test server, the movies never start. Near as I can tell the SWF loads and functions fine but the movies dont work... constant loading bar. Of course, I want them to stream in a YouTube-like fashion. I've fought with this for some time, tried .FLV files directly in DW (no joy there either) so I'm stuck. If I replace the movies with images, the SWF functions just fine. Just can't seem to do the movies.
I'm working on a project and I want to load Youtube movies into Flash. This is no problem and works fine, accept i'm running into a bug (quite an irritating one
I create a playlist from XML and have linked different Youtube-movies linked on the buttons i dynamicly create. When i press a button for the first time it loads the right movie but when i click on a different button, the same movie gets loaded (so the first movie always loads again).This is the AS:
I am trying to create a flash viewer, which will load various other flash movies. The viewer will be in the root directory, but the flash movies it will load are a few directories deep. Those movies access various sound clips that are in an audio directory relative to each swf I want to load.[code]It seems that when I load one of these movies into my viewer, the loaded movie is looking for the sounds in an audio folder in the root directory, and not relative to the swf I loaded. Is there a way to set this? I would rather not have to make the changes in each of my other movies to use the absolute path.[code]
I am trying to load some of my Flash Movies abit faster. I had read somewhere that i should use certain commands to bring the sounds out of the library after the SWF or page is loaded. I think i am suppsed to use Event listeners or call on the sounds somehow?? Does anyone understand what i am saying OR have any tutorials or links to tutorials that i can look at with regards to calling sounds?
How does the browser load flash files? Do they load progressively, or does the browser wait until the entire flash file is loaded before displaying it?The reason is I have a tiny clip that is extremely high in quality, only a few seconds long, but it's over 4 mb.Will the user have to wait until all 4 mb is loaded before viewing? Or does it load as the user watches it? I just imported a .flv into Flash, and exported as a .swf.
I'm trying to understand how AS3 works compared to AS2 when using navigation buttons to load external .swf files.
In AS2, I would have 5 menu buttons. Each button contained a script to load an external .swf file into layer 2 (on top of my existing movie). It would also contain a line of code to unload any movie that was already in Layer 2. This way new movies came in on top and were easy to identify when it came time for them to be unloaded.
Now in AS3, I can't find a similar way to work with external movies, since there are no longer layers. I create a movieLoader and add a child to it to load my external .swf - that works fine.But how do I tell each button to remove any children that already exist before loading the new child? The way it works now, the movies just keep piling on top of each other whenever I click a button.[code]...
[URL]My goal is to make all animations to load at once, because right now it only loads (loadMovie) on whatever you click, therefore there is a delay between the link you click and what will open.how you could preload all animations before you enter the site, I need your help, your any tip, and your advice on what code should I use.[URL]
Recently I designed and programmed a website.... and today I have come (this happens only in internet explorer web browser)Every other web browser like firefox, safari it's loads totally fine.click on the URL link below and click on any buttons in the navigation bar with your mouse cursor.As you can see a quick blink, the flash file is at the very top left hand side before its in the correct position. (underneath the nav bar)It seems that the wmode / transparent is causing it.If I remove wmode - it loads fine in ie.ut I need the transparent / wmode for the drop down menu to work (so its visible while the flash file is there.)
look @ the source for this page [URL] It works great in all Webkit/Mozilla browers but in IE 9 we can only see the top half of the swf and in IE 8 it doesnt load @ all. I searched all the other threads and nothing seems to work
I bought a template from flashmo which comes one main flash file and photoalbum fl. file. The main flash file plays swf. file from photoalbum. I like to create many photoalbums and play them on the main file.I have no idea how to do that. I spend hours and hours searching online but I cannot find information.The actionscript that is related to playing movie is below.
import mx.transitions.*; import mx.transitions.easing.*; // var numMenuX = 605;
Ok, I know this is probally has a simple answer. but i cant figure it out. i have 3 buttons each controling a different movie clip. but the effect i want is when you click a button the assigned movie clip loads ontop of the other. basically this is because the movie clips are alpha tweens and i need that transition effect
I am trying to load 9 movies into a flash, I want them to be loaded randomly and to loop, right now I am using this script but it is playing them in a certain order. Is there a way they can be loaded randomly?
var mcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader(); var list:Object = new Object(); mcl.addListener(list);
I have an empty movie clip which I use to load movies into it...(A) and (B)...
My question is: If I load movie "A", and later on I load "B" (here is my quesion) what happen to the loading process if I need to load "A" again? is goint to load it from scratch or some how stays in the cache?
