I'm creating a tutorial with voice over and the voice over is an mp3 file and I've checked the 'Export in First Frame' option... and every thing works perfect... on my local machine...
Where as when I access the files on the web.. my preloader does not show up until 90% loaded... and thats because of 'Export in First Frame'
Can any one help / guide me ... any simple alternate method for this.. .. so that .. Preloader shows up and also the voice over works...
the easiest (but not only) way to handle this problem is to create a stand-alone preloader. ie, a new fla that contains only your preloader code/animation and loads your current (main) swf.
Can you please tell me, how to do that.. ?
I mean... create a seperate fla file for preloader... and then.. ? do I have to call the preloader.swf in the main.swf ..(or) .. call the main.swf in preloader.swf.. ?
Can you tell me how to proceed in detail...
you load the main swf into the preloader swf using loadMovie, loadMovieNum or loadClip. if you're publishing for fp 7 or better, using the moviecliploader class and loadClip is the easiest.
