My customers are experiencing some intermittent delays of sounds in a series of educational Shockwave movies that are delivered via Internet. The sounds range in length from a couple seconds up to a minute or more. They are voice only - no music - so quality is not too big a concern. I haven't been able to establish any consistency in when the sound problems occur.
I've been reading about streaming linked sounds. The conversion sounds substantial so before I go there, I want to feel confident that linking external sounds will solve the problem. Anyone have any insight on linked audio in Shockwave? Any resources that you've found useful?
There will always be some latency when streaming sounds while the buffer fills. The only way to get a definitive answer is to test for yourself by creating a #swa member and setting its #url property then publishing to SW and testing a vartiety of configurations.
