    That's working great now - no track overlap or anything. Good job!

    Uh?

    Am I supposed to be able to hear music when I use this player?

    On Mac 9.2.2 and IE 5.1.6 I hear nothing and then if I change track the whole thing eventually freezes, exactly like all the other players that use LoadSound()... but worse!

    Ok,

    I finished the component and I also made a SoundPreloader component to preload any up to 10 sounds using xml file. I started a new thread for this:

    http://www.flashkit.com/board/showth...hreadid=469151

    And it works on Mac IE5.1. Let me know abut any bugs or changes. Thanks.

    Did the original topic of this thread ever get solved ?
    It's so long I can't find the answer.

    I.E. How to stop the DOWNLOADING of an mp3 when stopped mid-streaming.

    Thanks,
    Adrian

    Nope, it hasn't been resolved. It's still an issue for Macromedia to fix, and I'd imagine that it would be a patch to the Flash player plugin.

    With all the huge projects they have going over at Macromedia - breeze, remoting, etc I bet that the fix won't be implemented til the next version of flash... *sigh*

    Solution?

    There is something that I have found, it is an MP3 player, doesnt use movieclips, but XML instead. Its called Catalist Radio, www.catalistcreative.com I have used this but have not tested it as I am loading only one MP3 and it seems to work fine. It could work as a last resort or something? The mp3 player is on flashkit, but I can't find it. But he will be adding a download section on his site if that helps.

    Well, the problem is not how you load the MP3s, but the fact that even after you stop one to load another, the old one keeps loading even though there's no object reference for it.

    I think all the players are ending up XMl based

    Check my site, and mine uses an xml playlist as well - it even pulls in the user added ratings for tracks, etc.

    I removed the post, looked like an old issue so I'm still digging.

    I'm on Safari if your response wasn't totally sarcastic.

    As far as I know, this issue is not resolved - files that are downloading in Flash will continue to download until they are complete.

    The key is controlling that existing file with a stop(), _visble=0, and mute audio - before loading the next file.

    so, a multiple streaming bogdown scenario is not considered a problem?

    Wheels, does what your suggestion keep the bogdown from happening?

    WHy is this so daunting. Seems like there should be some easy script like stopStreaming();

    ...???

    I had this discussion with one of the Flash Project Managers this summer.

    My two biggest issues are lack of control over downloads, and lack of access to the internal information Flash calculates to determine buffering (it's there - why can't we use it in our preloaders?).

    Anyway, I was told the reason why Macromedia doesn't give us control of these two items is that they want people to buy their steaming server solutions.

    I argued that many sites can't afford 5K just to ensure that things run right, but it fell on deaf ears... Macromedia does't consider small sites a big enough client to offer full access to all of it's capabilities.

    There are a couple of strategies for making things run smoother.

    1. Offering narrow and broadband versions.

    2. Keeping files around 2MB in file size (1 minute or less of video).

    3. Use Sorenson's stiching feature on larger files (which creates problems when building controllers).

    4. Next time you see a Flash Project Manager (Buy him a drink - as I did), vent, and then pinch his nipple really hard (I should have done that).

    So we struggle. Good luck.
