TROUBLESHOOTING SOUND APPLICATIONS

  • Does there seem to be a large delay in playing sounds when you are mixing more than one? Always check to see whether the movie is running on a Windows machine with the platform system property. If it is, try to set the soundDevice to “DirectSound” or “QT3Mix”. If users have DirectX or QuickTime installed, this results in much better sound mixing. If they do not, the soundDevice reverts to “MacroMix”.

  • Windows machines have a history of difficulty in supporting good multichannel audio playback. It is especially important that developers test early and often on the machines they plan to support, and to document the system requirements for their users. Macromedia's Tech Support Web site is an important source of information in troubleshooting sound issues.

  • If you are trying to use stereo sounds, and the sound ends up being mono after you make a Shockwave movie, check your Shockwave Audio Settings in the Xtras menu. It may be set to convert all stereo sounds to mono to make them smaller.
