I have the Flash of a Captivate simulation embedded on one of
the slides in my Presenter file. When I publish it, the audio for
the Flash starts playing in the middle of the previous slide -
playing over the audio for that slide. When I click Pause, the
audio for the Presenter slide stops, but the Flash audio keeps
going even though I haven't gotten to the slide with the embedded
file yet. It always starts 4-5 seconds into the previous slide.
Does anyone have a clue why this is happening?
I've used embedded Flash files in Presenter several times
with no problems, and the settings in Presenter are all the same as
in the presentations that work correctly.
- In Presentation Settings, I have "controlled by
presentation playbar" deselected because there are click boxes in
the Captivate sim that users will click to advance.
- In Slide Properties, I have "advance by user" select for
both the embedded slide and the previous slide.
- I thought that there was some glitch in the Audio Editor,
so I added 5 seconds of silence at the end of the previous slide,
and added enough silence to the embedded slide to more than cover
the length of the embedded piece.
This is the first time I've tried to embed a Flash file since
I upgraded to Captivate 2. Could something have changed on the
Captivate side of things? It still doesn't make sense why the audio
would start playing before the Flash starts, but I'm grasping at
It isn't just the audio from the embedded Flash that runs
early - it's the actual Flash file. I don't know if this makes any
difference in figuring out what's going on, but thought I'd add
that bit of detail.
Also - I had found out that my Captivate project that I
created the Flash from had gotten corrupted and was hoping that
fixing that would fix this problem as well ... but no such luck...
