I'm trying to put a section on my homepage that has 4-5 different songs (all in MP3) to choose to hear. I do not want to wait for them all to pre-load and I don't want them to auto start (i.e. streaming). When a user clicks a button I'd like the appropriate song to begin streaming and/or I'd like to have the sound files loading in the background while the user may be navigation elsewhere. Any ideas?

Send a message via ICQ to optionS

you could make separate swf files for the audio tracks.

you can include a preloader for each, to make sure that each is downloaded b4 allowing the user to play them.

Adding a stop action to the first frame will prevent the audio from playing (streaming), but include a play button to start playing.

u can control all the tracks from your main movie, so the play button doesn't have to be in each file.

Hope this helps

Default preload sound

Wayne, quick question -

when I preload my sound, is it okay if I put it in one frame or is it best to place it in enough frames to accommodate it? I presume it's okay in one frame, set to event (then a stop sound action to mute it).
