> As far as I have heard, Shockwave/Flash does not drop frames. You may have a lag in play, but no dropped frames, as in QT or RealAudio. (If I am wrong, please correct). Personally, I would much prefer a clean play then a "jagged-aliased version that looks bad and plays a little faster". Solution may be to put an ifFrameLoaded, waiting unti the middle of your movie, or at least past the loading of the music.

>From what I understood of using "streaming" for audio, within Flash .... quote: "Flash forces animation to keep pace with stream sounds. If Flash can't draw animation frames quickly enough, it skips frames" Page 135 of the Flash manual. So I believe if a machine had a hard time rendering smooth text by slowing down, it couldn't because the sound would be telling it to keep up, thus chopping up the animation.
If the smooth switches off, at least the animation will play smoother.

Anybody correct me if I'm wrong ... this is my first time
