I was wondering if there is a special method to loading a
video in an SWF.
I'm trying to load a video of a fairly static character
speaking. Currently i load it as sequence of frames from the
timeline , this is proving very slow on lower end machines as
loading bitmap after bitmap causing the refresh rate on some
machines to drop below the required framerate.
The problem i'm having is that the character is separated
into parts and the video is only of the body so loading externally
isn't ideal as i'd have to line up line up the external video
perfectly to avoid a tear (although i'm sure this is doable).
So my questions are:
is there a better way to do it?
how is it done in games?
how are the videos kept so small?
Is FLV the way to go and can anyone direct me to a good
Does anyone know how Microsoft get Ms Dewey to run so
smoothly and keep up it's framerate? (just as an example as to me
it looks quite high fidelity)
