View Full Version : How's This Possible??

11-12-2009, 11:47 PM
I'm preloading an mp3 file that is 4 MB in size. When I test the preloder, it loads almost instantaneously...(yes, I'm simulating a download in flash, very low download speed as well. At 28k it only takes a few seconds to load

However, when I preload my .swf file that is only 900kb, it takes around four times longer.

I have my audio set at high quality and 160kb in the publish settings.

Can someone explain how the audio is downloading so quickly?

Here is my code (got it from Flep)

var soundReq:URLRequest = new URLRequest("song.mp3")
var sound:Sound = new Sound();
sound.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onComplete);
sound.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.PROGRESS, progressHandler);
function progressHandler(event:ProgressEvent):void
var perc:int=Math.round(event.bytesLoaded/event.bytesTotal*100);
function onComplete(event:Event):void
trace('download complete');

for audio and video you have to download from the web, otherwise download is instantaneous.
