    Arrow Flash movie slow in browsers even when downloaded!

    There is a problem with this movie that I just can't fix. The movie when played for example seems alot slower than it should be - by at least a second. This means that the sounds etc don't sync up properly. I don't understand why this is. Even if the movie has FULLY loaded its still too slow. I have even tried compressing everything (sounds, music and quality etc) to the maximum possible which seems to make no difference. I export the movie as a projector '.exe and it plays normally. What is it with the browsers that it doesn't like??

    Please help someone!

    Thanks!

    hmmmm... I dunno. I tried it and it worked just fine on my end (I'm using FF on OSX via cable modem). Maybe it's a connection issue on your end?

    I guess that's because you have nothing to compare it with...erm, I should have thought of that one first. I mean, it's like a overall delay in the animation of a second. It just all seems a little slower than it's meant to be. Hmm. I'm on a cable modem too 750k.

    Whoops, I should have been a little more specific too...

    This means that the sounds etc don't sync up properly
    I was referring to this... all the sound/animation syncs up on my end. If it's something more in depth it'll have to wait until someone who actually knows something about Flash steps in here

    Flash movies depend a lot on processor power. Probably your processor is overloaded at the time you're trying to play. The size of the movie and the Frame per second rating also contribute to the speed.

    You know, I think you are right. Is there anything I can do about this?

    usually the best method is to convert it to a FLV file and then punch it through flash... you audio and video will be in sync if things get spotty, and being a video file it should be easier on Flash since its not trying to interpret motion and the like...
