    LoadMovie delay help

    ssamuels222

      Hi

       

      I have a movie at www.sspaintings.com.

      This one loads a second movie on one of the pages.

      I have noticed that when the movie loads there is a short delay, kind of like a jump.

      I have tried removing all sound to see if this made a difference but there is no difference.

      Can anyone tell me how to avoid this if possible.

       

      Also is there anywhere where I could learn how to send variables back into flash from a php file.

      I want to create html tags on the file so that the search engines can find them.

       

      Thanks. Samanthat

            Hi Kglad,

             

             

            I see a delay between movie 1: sspaintings.swf (Flash 6-as1) and 2: firstladies.swf.(Flash7-as2)

             

            When on the site you need to listen for it. The music kind of stops and then continues.

            I have removed the music altogether from the second movie, which is exactly the same as the first movie but one can still hear it.

            The 2nd movie is loaded and the user can access it by clicking on the travelling exhibit page either on the bottom image or the link saying:

            Go to the first ladies book.

             

            When I test it on my computer I hear the delay also and the first movie loads well then after a few it loads the second.

            In the movie output this is what comes out after the first movie loads, which I assume is for the second movie because that movie is Flash7 - as2

            This is what I get once the second movie loads and that is precisely when I hear the delay.

            Thanks so much. Sorry I didn't answer before but I had to clean up my computer from some malwarebytes.

              i hear some sound irregularities that are caused by something consuming cpu cycles.  it's not possible to determine what's causing those cpu cycles to be consumed without knowledge of your app and, even then, would probably require a fair amount of trial-and-error.

                Hi Kglad,

                 

                Can I read about that somewhere? Is there a subject I can look at?

                  you would need  to optimize your swf's performance.  this is a wide-ranging somewhat nebulous topic.

                    Thanks so much. I'll use that lead.
