Why is it when I view my file by linking to the SWF file the
tutoial I created it looks great and I can see the whole recorded
screen without having to scroll but it takes a while to load. But
when I link to the HTML file the tutorial I created loads instantly
but to see the whole window I recorded you have to scroll the page.
I want to get the best of both worlds, the file to load fast and
the viewer to not have to scroll to see all actions.
Does anyone know the fix. I have set up in application and
snap to grid. What am I doing wrong?
The HTML file contains sizing parameters that determine the
size to play the project in the browser. You are seeing scroll bars
because you likely recorded full screen. Keep in mind that when you
record full screen, your user will be playing it back inside the
browser. This means the visible area is reduced. So you should
probably consider reducing the size of the recording area a tad.
I don't really have a good explanation of why it loads faster
one way as opposed to another. I would think that pointing at the
.SWF all by itself would be faster than the HTML page. Unless the
HTML page way is factoring into the preload situation. I recall
seeing this a while back. If one loaded the HTML page, the
preloader worked. This caused the project to begin playing after
60% had been loaded into the browser. But if linked to just the
.SWF itself, it all has to load into the browser before play
commences. Maybe this is what is happening.
As an FYI, the snap to grid option will do nothing with the
playback. It only affects the Captivate editor area.
