    Unhappy Flash- sound and timing

    I'm making a a movie with flash and i'm using a 2 minute mp3 file. When i created the movie certain images are synchronized with the sound file but when i actually view the movie the sound seems faster.
    What am i doing wrong? Is this a loading issue?
    Thanks in advance.

    Quite possibly. Are you preloading the .swf?

    The only other thing I can think to check off hand is the frame rate. Perhaps your frame rate is to slow/fast and by adjusting that you could get better results.

    I am guessing, but have you set the sound to "stream" or is it set on event or one of the other sound settings? When you set the sound type to stream the computer will actually drop frames to ensure that the keyframes stay in sync with the audio.

    This is done as different computers will play it at different speeds, even if the entire thing is preloaded.

    The other thing you want to do is a small thing: Whenever I time certain keyframes with audio sounds that I am streaming, it looks better if you show the image 1 frame BEFORE the audio that you want to play. It seems wierd, but I find otherwise the images seem SLIGHTLY behind the audio.

    ...hope this helps!
