06-20-2001, 07:22 AM

We are devolping a dynamic Flash-application where we load XML-objects into Flash.

We are aware of the Whitespace-problem.

But here comes the real STRANGE part! ! !

Running the Flash-application in the Flahsplayers on either platform, Mac and PC is equally fast.
The loadtime is around 4 seconds.

But when you embed the Flashfile in a html-document and access it either locally or through "http" the Mac
almost stalls and warns about a script that slows down the computer.

On the PC the loadtime still is 4 seconds.

Has anyone encountered anything similar?

We made a "broader" test based on browsers.

On Mac runnning OS 9.1
IE is not working properly

Netscape works fine with the same version of the Flash Plug-In.

Under OS X even IE works just fine.

So do I have to turn to Bill to get this solved or what?

And this still does not answer why testing the movie in Flash goes extremely slow on a Mac 35-45 seconds and 4-6 seconds on a PC. The machines are reasonably egual in speed and specs.

Any ideas?

Are you using sockets or sendAndLoad?

I have to consult my programming partner to be able to answer that question.

We will met tomorrow again.
Then, he can answer it.

Get back to you then.

We are using XML.load(url)
to load XML.

He says it is the same thing as "sendAndLoad" but with another syntax.

Does this sort anything out?
