    External MP3 plays back too fast

    HughisHere
      Hi,
      I entered a previous post and said that my External MP3 was not working with Flash 8.0. I tried a longer sound wave and what it appears to be that the sound wave is playing back but at a high speed that is unintelligeble.

      Does the MP3 file need to be converted or formated in a certain way to use as an External MP3. I have imported the exact same MP3 file and it works with no problem in embedded mode.

      thanks,
      hugh

          Hi

          Audio that sound like Chipmunks is cause by inappropriate bit rate.

          it's best to use 16-bit 22 kHz mono sounds (stereo uses twice as much data as mono), but Flash can
          import either 8- or 16-bit sounds at sample rates of 11, 22, or 44 kHz.

            Urami,
            One Super Thank you.

            I was using 32 bit, I guess thinking it would improve quality. 16 bit at 22kHz works great.

            By the way, I have a major Flash Lite 2.0 app close to completion and I was never happy with the tinny sound of sound bytes. I have not tried it yet but I would not be surprised if switching to 16 bit for the cell app will improve the sound of that also.

            So thanks twice,
            hugh
