05-02-2000, 01:57 AM
has anyone noticed that "start" can actually cut down file size (and seems to sound clearer) instead of using the "stream" setting? I have background music made up of 3 different clips (total 600 kb). each clip loops 3 times and then goes on to the next clip. with "start" i saved over 50 kb on the .swf file size. I would be interested to know if there are any drawbacks to using this...like maybe the clips playing differently, overlapping or leaving a gap, on faster computers, etc.
