    Chipmunk audio...

    MatthewHale
      Using Flash 8 pro.

      I've made a very simple mp3 player. The buttons for tracks, one button for stop.
      It loads external (on the same server, in a different folder) .swf files with mp3s in their timelines using loadMovie scripting, not .sound. (although if someone can point me to a good resource for the .sound object, I'd be grateful)
      The placed mp3s in the .swf files are set to "stream"
      The mp3s are 128kbps, 44.1 KHz
      They play fine on their own.
      They play fine locally through the player on a Mac (10.4.7, Flash player 8 [I think, could be 9?])
      They play fine on the Mac when uploaded to the site.
      On a fresh insall of Windows XP on another machine (no BootCamp hoodoo), through either IE7 or Firefox with Flash player 9 the tempo of the music is about 30% faster than normal.
      I've looked everywhere online for a solution to this, and it's driving me nuts.
      Most people with this problem resolved it by changing the sample rate / bit rate of the mp3, but I've tried several combinations and can't make it work.
      Also tried exporting as Flash 7, Flash 6, and pretty much all combinations in the export dialog I can think of.
      Basically, no joy.
      Ideas?
      Sympathy?

      muchas gracias

          Hi,
          I'm not too sure on the solution to the problem but I think that it would help anyone who does know what they are talking about (unlike me) if they could actually see what you have done. Would you be able to post a link to the file please.
          Thanks and sorry I couldn't be anymore help

              Chipmunks is for one reason only - bit rate problem.

              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.

                ugh
                I don't know what to say.
                The file is 128 Kpbs at 22kHz (I imported new files this eve.)
                I don't know how to check bit depth (i.e. 8 or 16 bit).
                I'm using LameBrain, and previously I used iTunes.
                Got the same results with both.

                Link is now up. Only the first file is active.

                Thanks for any help.
