Chapter 17. CONTROLLING SOUND > PLAYING EXTERNAL SOUNDS

PLAYING EXTERNAL SOUNDS

Playing most external sounds is actually exactly like playing Internet sound members. All you need to do is import them as linked files. The sound member refers to this external file for the sound data, but all the Lingo commands treat it as an internal sound.

The main advantage to playing external sound files is that Director streams them off the hard drive or CD-ROM. This means that the entire sound does not have to be loaded into memory before being played.
