    Download Center MM

    Why doesn't MM update the Dutch Flash Install page? There's still a version of 12/12/2002!!
    In March 2003 there was an update for Flash player 6, but the Dutch page didn't get this. I reported this a few times at MM, but nothing changes.
    Now with the release of 7, the story continues.

    I have just downloaded the trial, and I have to say that is one of the longest and slowest installs ever from Macromedia!

    Mostly I like it, or at least, now that I have worked out about case-sensitivity I mostly like it.

    But, why did they kill off the right-click to get to the actions panel? And the scrollbar component for the textfield? And what is it in the new components that means that a Flash file with nothing but two components in it is 257 KB zipped?

    Which brings me to a really great feature: Save and compact. Excellent.

    all of these are not good. I loved the right click for the actions! and the scroll bar!

    Quite a few closures, especially in eLearning (EMC being the latest). The up side is that the traffic is not so bad ...

    Flash player 7 final

    I noticed something (could just be me).

    Flash player 7 deletes the caching! When a swf has been loaded, in Flash 6 and below, you don't have to load and wait again to see the same swf. But in 7 the loading starts all over again!! Is this a bug?

    AS is an ActionScript file. ASC is a ActionScript Communication file for use with Flash Communication Server.

    Urgent!!!

    Tell Macromedia that their Player 7 in not backwards compatable when it comes to frame by frame sync-ing of streamed audio.

    Example, www.cyberartlearning.com has one of our 5 minute presentations on their web page telling and showing potential
    students how the online courses work.

    The streamed audio was sync-ed up perfectly under Player 6 but now isn't anywhere near sync-ed. Plus, it get more out of sync as the movie plays on until it is so far out you would think I forgot to select streaming when published.

    For my company to stay in business for what we do there has to be frame by frame sync-ing of streamed audio.

    What happened anyway, did someone forget flash has audio?

    Yes that is the Flash presentation we did for them.

    Now if you are seeing it sync-ed why am I not seeing it.

    Could it be the operating system? Right now I am on a lap top
    with Win98 SE.

    I will have to check it out later on my XP machine when I get
    back home for this road trip.

    i've met with 2 sound problems with flash 7...

    i've been making an animation with flash mx, it's got actions synced to the music. i've just installed flash mx 2004 pro and when i open the flash from it, compile and run it, there's no sound. Nothing. this is the code i used for the sound, and it worked perfectly under flash mx.

    bgm = new Sound();
    bgm.loadSound("s0001a.mp3",false);
    bgm.start(0,false);

    i went back to flash mx and loaded the same file, compiled and ran it, and there WAS sound.

    i opened up the html with my browser and sure enough, there was sound again. could be bug, or a setting issue.

    however the timing issues are quite enormous - the same animation, when tested in flash mx, was synced.
    running it with the flash 7 player from the browser, showed me that it became un-synced from very very early on, as if the animation was running at 4/5 of the speed when i tested it in flash mx. even when i turned the detail to LOW it didn't run nearly correctly.

    i thought there was supposed to be an improvement in speed from flash 6 to 7? my system is XP running on 2.4Gb with 512MB ram and Geforce 4 (128mb), so i don't think it's a speed issue there... right?

    i could not test the animation in flash mx 2004 pro for the syncing of music because there was NO SOUND when i tested.
