    Not so. There's various ways. The simplest would be to include a small test file of, say, 10K, time the download on that and make buffer calculations. The Wildform adaptive preloader works in a more...

    If the original is crap then all you're ever going to get is crap. But perhaps I don;t understand your question. What the dimension problem you mention ? Are you trying to anamorphically change it's...

    In my opinion, no preloader is worth a damn except an adaptive preloader. Everything else is just guesswork.

    By adaptive preloader I mean one that "sniffs" the users' connection speed then buffers...

    I think you just need to add an adaptive preloader to the start. That way it'll "sniff" the connection speed and buffer whatever amount is needed for smooth playback. If you can't make one yourself I...

    I have hosted a straight swf (approx 4Mb, 2 minutes long) which received about 50,000 hits per day over several months. No problems with availability.

    Thanks Itempest :) My machine is a base-level Mini.

    I did try a version where I split the show up into several chunks, unloading each as it went along, but that made the problems worse. It caused...

    Which is all very interesting Itempest, but do you have anything useful to offer, or any advice on why the Flash performance is so bad on my Mini ?

    Well, from the deafening silence here from any Mac users, and the gloomy and dismal responses I've had at a Mac forum, the answer is: MACS CAN'T HANDLE IT

    Yep, it needs caps. Maybe a few...

    Thanks for the idea. I did try it, but in fact it was worse ! The Mini paused and "gulped" at each chunk.

    It's just crazy. I can play the images swf by itself fine; and Quicktime will play the...

  15. Slow PC is fine but Mac can't handle it ..... !?

    I have an odd cross-platform problem.

    I've created a simple slideshow with a few fades and zooms, with a single audio track. It's not complex, but it is large: 1280px by 1024.

    Very nice enhancement. I especially like the speed controls.

    The "update" and restore" functions are also very well thought out. Too many apps make saving and recalling modifications click-heavy....

    Thanks JB.

    Do you mean to just go into the FLA and pull out all the controls etc and resave that as a player ?

    Also I do like the different loading fonts although what I'd really like is a...

    I have Flix 3 and am thinking of upgrading to Flix 4. But the only function I really need in the v4 upgrade is the screensaver.

    I've found one of the most crucial aspects of sync is how you've captured the original video - what codec you use. Capture with a poor codec, or converting from certain avi codecs gives exceptionally...

    Sounds to me like the artwork in that swf has been saved with alpha channels. In that case there are only two options: redo the artwork without alpha channels, or play the swf using "load movie".

    The changing address is an aberation because of an third-party software package I used to produce the images.

    No, it acts just like a standard flash swf file. It's really progressive download rather than true streaming, but in operation it works in exactly the same way.

    Here's an example:

    I gave up trying to find a good 56K level - just can't be done. And I think it's little optimistic of people of dial-up to think they're going to be able to watch good streaming video.
