    Need general understanding of how sounds work in Shockwave

    czigany Level 1

      I'm seeing an intermittent problem with sound stopping in my Shockwave projectors. The projector seems to play correctly but the sound simply stops. I'm trying to understand how Shockwave/Director 11 handles sounds. It seems to me that, when the projector is downloading to the user's computer, it also downloads the sounds. However, this problem seems to indicate that the projector doesn't always have the sound to play. I'm learning about streaming sounds in Shockwave and I'm wondering if this will solve the problem. If so, why is streaming better than simply embedding the sounds in the projector?

       

      Does anyone know of a resource where I can get the big picture of how Shockwave handles audio?
