I've been working exporting a Flash movie as a QuickTime movie. For some reason, I get no sound when I export the Flash movie with the Export settings of my audio files set to MP3 compression (in the library, not in the QT Publish dialog tab). The movie seems to work correctly when I use ADPCM compression. I have not yet tried RAW format.
Anyone out there have a similar problem? What am I doing wrong? BTW, I'm running a Dell Win98 machine.
well, i now know that QT supports MP3, because i can open and play MP3 files from my hard drive using QT. (incidentally, by chance i discovered that QT Pro will let you rip MP3's to WAV files). so that seems to rule out that possibility.i'll keep messing with it 'til i find something more out.
in a way, you were right.
the answer is (according to Macromedia support):
"The root of the problem is the fact that Flash's export to Quicktime is a Quicktime movie with a Flash 3 formatted SWF. So the Flash 3 SWF export doesn't understand the mp3 audio compression."
so, even though QT4 itself supports MP3, the Flash part of it doesn't...ah-ha...so another question: do you know of a place where i could find a comparison of Flash 3 vs. Flash 4 export features, so that i could know what will work in QT and what won't?
