I created a course in Presenter and tested it in our LMS and
it operated fine. I then added narration and re-imported the
course. The course now locks up when trying to load in our LMS. I
ran HTTP Analyzer and it's freezing while loading the audio file
for the first slide. Any ideas? I also use Captivate and do not
have this issue with those courses. Why does prenter have a .swf
for each slide and Captivate create one .swf?
Also, I tried importing some .wav files into Presenter that I
created in Soundbooth and they won't import.
The HTTP analyzer would have shown the completer URL of the
audio file...something like
Can you download this file by typing this URL in the
browser's address bar?
BTW, Captivate works because (as you had observed) Captivate
publishes single swf which has audio embedded in it.
Regarding why Presenter publishes multiple swf as againt the
model chosen by Captivate of publishing single swf. I think
Presenter would be trying to serve the use case of bringing only
part of the content that is needed (each individual swf files tend
to be small). Whereas for Captivate the use case would probably be:
no matter if one generates one BIG file but the packaging and
passing it around users should be easy.
(On a sidenote, I always wondered why Captivate wanders off
this philosophy and makes multiple swfs for Full motion
