View Full Version : How does streaming work in flash, and is it just for video and sound?

I'm hoping to get a rundown on how streaming works with flash 7.

How do you make it work? And is it only good for doing video and sound, or are there other uses for it?

I can't think of any other things that you could aply the streaming-thingie to...

Anyways, to give an answer to your other question:
The difference between event and streaming is just that event-media will only start playing when there fully loaded [_root.getBytesTotal()==_root.getBytesLoaded() :p].
Streaming media don't need to be loaded fully and will start playing with a certain percentage loaded...

NOTE: My head isn't exactly exploding by information on streaming and event stuff, so this is all I can think of at the moment...sorry

Hope it helped a tiny bit ;) - Ruben

EDIT#1: Maybe YOUR head WILL explode after you've tried the actionscript-dictionary :rolleyes:
EDIT#2: AND you might wanna give this thread (http://www.actionscript.org/forums/showthread.php3?t=42546&highlight=stream) a shot.
