I am having an issue when playing back the flash file. The
first slide of my movie is a topics slide that allows you to jump
to various slides within the movie. My movie is about 160 slides
and the flash file is about 2.2MB. As I try to jump further into
the movie, the load time increases basically halting, Eventually
giving me the following error:
"A script in this movie is causing Macromedia Flash Player 8
to run slowly, If it continues to run, your computer may become
unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script" and gives yes/no
Could anyone help give some insight as to why this is
Without knowing the physical size (in pixels) of the movie,
nor any information regarding size, formatting, quantity and type
of objects it contains, I'll just take a wild guess that - at 160
slides - the only way this movie is going to run smoothly is if you
preload 100% of it.
In other words, your Captivate SWF is too large.
That said, it is possible there are other issues as well, but
as I suggested earlier, we really don't have enough information to
do more than speculate. Because of the warning regarding Flash or
Flash scripts (have you inserted SWF animations containing
action-scripting - and if so, is the action-script written for
version 1.0 (suppported) and not version 2.0 (not supported)??
1) Preload the entire movie (the preloader
"defaultpreloader.FLA" can be modified in Flash and is located at):
. C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Captivate\Gallery\Preloaders
Change the default "60%" to "100%" to preload one-hundred
percent before play begins.
2) Make your movies shorter - as a general rule 160 slides is
four (4) times the recommended number.
3) Check for inserted SWF files that might contain AS 2.0 (or
3.0) because only action-script 1.0 is supported in Captivate.
Hope this helps.
