Subject: FLASH: Flash-Urgent: One more try (Help needed with preloading audio)
From: Renu Vora

Hi!

I need help with preloading audio.
I have an audio.swf & a main animation movie. I want to preload audio &
animation so that users could have a synchronized play.

Please check www.seeitfirst.com/2000/index2.htm in IE
If the above url is viewed in slower modems - audio does not synchronize
with animation.
I have done this before, and am following one of the tutorials, but for some
reason, it does not work right.

Here's what I did to synchronize audio & animation, but with fol steps, my
audio does not play at all.

1) Audio Movie - I put my wav file in frame 3 & label it audio.
Following are the actions in this movie.

Frame1 -
If frame is loaded ("audio")
Begin Tell Target (_level0")
Go to and Play ("done")
End Tell Target
End Frame Loaded

Frame2 -
Go to and Play (1)

Frame3 -
stop

Now for my main movie - I have 2 scenes - preload & main & I have 3 frames
in preload scene & 300 frames in main scene

Following are actions in preload scene:

Frame1 -
If Frame is Loaded (main, 300)
Go to and Stop (3)
End Frame Loaded

Frame2 -
Go to and Play (1)

Frame3 - Load Movie ("audio.swf",1)
Stop

First frame in this scene is labeled "done"
Following are the actions in Main scene of main movie.

Frame1 -
Begin Tell Target ("_level1")
Go to and Play ("audio")
End Tell Target

What am I doing wrong here - animation plays but audio does not play at all.
Would appreciate help.
TIA
Renu
