I have a Flash presentation for a client and I am using
scenes to navigate through the different pages of the mockup
website that I have created for them. In my own website I have an
externally loaded mp3 player that points to an xml playlist:
Is it possible to do this with my presentation or will the
audio player have to be loaded into each scene? This would cause
the problem of having the audio reload in each page. Any help or
suggestions on how to do this differently would be appreciated.
Don't worry, Christina, if the mp3 player is its own
movieClip, it will play independently of the main timeline. You
just have to make sure that this movieClip is on the timeline in
all scenes. (Only a consideration if you put it on stage in design
mode; if you place it via actionscript (attachMovie), that's anyway
the case automatically).
For your information, scenes are only logical separations of
the main timeline in design mode; during execution the scenes are
fused together. This often causes a problem for people who expect
them to be physically separate. In your situation it's a benefit.
