Play / Pause Music With Single Button?

Sep 28, 2009

I'm extremely new to Flash and I am making a website and want to have a single button that when pressed pauses or plays a music file. I was able to create one that works by following a tutorial that I found online but the problem is that the button is on the main timeline so as I move away from it, it stops working. I think that it would work better if I was able to make a movie clip out of the button so that it doesn't sit on the main timeline and will keep working no matter where I am on the timeline. All I need is one button that pauses and plays music when pressed. I also want to be able to have a "music on" line of text and "music off" line of text depending on whether the music is playing or not.

IDE :: Play / Pause Music With Single Button?

Sep 29, 2009

'm extremely new to Flash and I don't really know how to code yet.. I'm making a website and want to have a single button that when pressed either plays or pauses the music file. I found a tutorial that worked but it has two buttons (one for play and one for stop). You can see the tutorial here:[URL] I'm hoping that someone can tell me how I might be able to change the code so that a single button acts as both play and pause (i.e.; If music is not playing then play, if music is playing then stop).

Actionscript 3 :: Play Pause Button In A Flash Music Player?

Nov 10, 2011

I'm trying to make a simple music player with only one button for Play & Pause the music. What I have now is a MovieClip with:

1st Keyframe: active state for play Button
2nd Keyframe: active state for pause button
3rd Keyframe: hover state for play button
4th Keyframe: hover state for pause button

The script works OK, and play and pause the music without problems as expected.

The problem comes after the second click in the play/pause button when the alternance between two states becomes chaotic. The button never returns to the play state although the music was paused.

This is the code:

/**** Objects and Vars ****/
var AutoPlay:Boolean = false;
var isPlaying:Boolean = false;

IDE :: Play Music File Once Only On Click Of Play Button Until Music Stops

May 1, 2009

Using Macromedia Flash Professional 8.

I have a website banner made in Flash. I have added a music file to it and Play and Stop buttons. I also have a Replay button to replay the banner animation once it stops.

I have put the music on a separate frame so that it will not play automatically when the banner loads. I have made the Play button direct to the frame the music is located at so that when clicked, it will go to that frame and play the music file.

The problem I am currently having is that if I click the Play button more than once, it will play the music file again on top of the current play-through.

So if I click Play, the music will play. Then if I click it again, the music will play again, but on top of the first instance of the music, so two instances of it will now be playing and it sounds horrible.

I would like to make it so that if you click Play when the music is playing, it will not play the music again until the music has stopped.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Music Player - Play / Pause Specific Song

Nov 27, 2010

At the moment, I am attempting to make a music player that will play a specific song of my choosing. I am stuck at the part where you can pause the sound, and then play it in the same place. I have tried many things such as using the timer utilities. Right now, when I pause it, it stops, and when I press play, it plays from the beginning.
var channel:SoundChannel;
var soundCheck:Boolean = true;

ActionScript 1/2 :: Pause And Play Toggling Button?

Mar 23, 2011

I have created a Pause and Play button that toggles between states.  It controls a Timeline with synced Sound.  When I use it the sound and animation go out of sync.  Can anyone help me with this or perhaps have better code I could swap out to make this work?
Below is what I am currently using:On the first frame of an Action Script layer put this AS:
playBtn.onRelease = function() {
playBtn._visible = false;
pauseBtn._visible = true;

Put the Pause and Play buttons directly over each other on 2 layers for the duration of the timeline.Pause Button on top. (unless you have a STOP on the first line then maybe the Play button will start it.

I have seen umpteen different guides on how to make a play/pause button in flash. and i cannot get it to work. I think i may pull my hair out soon.basically- i have made an mc which sits on the main timeline. i t has 2 frames, ecah of which has a stop() action in the frame. the first has a pause button with the following script attached to to the button:


i have also tried putting in nextFrame instead of gotoAndStop() -but this is besides the point as it's not even stopping!in the second frame there is a play button with the following scruipt attached to it:


I think the problem may be deeper rooted because i have looked on sevral guides and they all tell me to do a similar thing.
In fact i made a button which sat on the timeline with this script

on (release) {

and STILL nothing happened!

ActionScript 3.0 :: Toggle Play / Pause Button In An FLA Animation?

Oct 27, 2008

I'm having difficulty adding a Play/Pause button to an FLA animation that I've created. The animation is a frame-by-frame clip with motion tweens (rather than an FLV file). I'd like the Play/Pause button to toggle between a PLAY state and a PAUSE state depending on whether the animation is already playing or paused. (It will automatically play when the user begins viewing it, so the first button state should be at PAUSE.)

I've sucessfully created the button (actually as a movie clip with the two states). I've also got the button to pause and play the animation--but I'm unable to get the button (movie clip that is) to actually toggle between the two states. Can anyone tell me a good script to use for this type of control?
