Chapter 14. Adding Sound and Video > Using Streaming Sounds

Using Streaming Sounds

Streaming sounds are specifically geared for playback over the Web. When Sync is set to Stream, Flash breaks a sound into smaller sound clips. Flash synchronizes these subclips with specific frames of the movie—as many frames as are required to play the sound. Flash stops streaming sounds when playback reaches a new keyframe or an instruction to stop playing either that specific sound or all sounds.

Unlike event sounds, which must download fully before they can play, streaming sounds can start playing after a few frames have downloaded. This situation makes streaming the best choice for long sounds, especially if you’ll be delivering your movie over the Web.
