Chapter 21. Publishing a Movie > Using the Bandwidth Profiler

Using the Bandwidth Profiler

To view the performance of a Flash document using a graph, use the Bandwidth Profiler. The Bandwidth Profiler displays how much data is sent for each frame in the active Flash document, according to the modem speed you specify. The Bandwidth Profiler has two windows. The left window shows information about the active document, and the current download settings, and the right window displays information about each frame in the document. In addition, the Bandwidth Profiler lets you view how the page loads, based on a specific bandwidth. For example, you could specify to load the Flash document using a modem speed of 28.8Kbps. To maintain an accurate download test, the Bandwidth Profiler compensates for added compression support applied to .swf files, which reduces the file size and improves streaming performance.

Use the Bandwidth Profiler

Click the Control menu, and then click Test Movie.

Click the View menu, and then click Bandwidth Profiler.

Click the View menu, point to Download Settings, and then select from the available bandwidth options, or click Customize, and then create a user-defined setting.

Click the View menu, and then click Simulate Download.

This tests the load of the Flash movie against the current settings.
