background music? event, stream, quality etc.
I've created a "music interface" that has three buttons on it that let the user pick which background music they want to hear. Everything works great but I'm worried that the size of the flash movie is going to be way to big.
I've seen these sorts of interface's on alot of sites. How are they doing it?
Are the audio files set to "event" or "stream"? Are they in completely seperate flash movies that have to load on the page via "loadMovie" or are they part of the "background"?
The audio I'm hearing on other people's websites sounds great but, I can't understand how? Do they not have to compress it? I've got a 2 second wave that I've tried compressing and I can only get it down to 90kb! (It sounds like crap too!)
Any tips and tricks or a reference to a related tutorial would be greatly, greatly appreciated!!!
