    Audio sounds tinny


      Using Captivate 4 with standard default settings for everything. Audio sounds sounds fine in preview mode but sounds tinny when published to swf. Installed latest patch to fix audio problem but same problem remains. Are my settings wrong? What should I do?

          Hi there,


          Try checking to see what the Audio quality is set to in the Project Information section of the Publish dialog box (File > Publish). By default this should be to set to 96 kbps - Near CD Quality, as shown in the screen shot I have included below.

          If this doesn't solve the problem, then I would suggest that you export the audio using the steps I have included below and check to see if the audio still sounds tinny when you play it in an audio player such as Windows Media Player.


          Exporting audio

          1. In Edit view choose Audio > Audio Management
          2. Select the entry in the Advanced Audio Management dialog
          3. Press Ctrl + A to select all the other slides
          4. Make sure Include MP3 and WAVE files in export are selected
          5. Click the Export button
          6. In the Browse For Folder dialog select a folder to export the selected audio files to
          7. Click OK.
          8. Click OK again to dismiss the Advanced Audio Management dialog

            Thanks for the help. The default was not 96 kbps and this caused the problem. When I switched it the tinny noise vanished. Thanks again!
