Chapter 11. Working with Sounds > Loading a Streaming MP3 File

Loading a Streaming MP3 File

You can load a MP3 music audio file using a built in Flash behavior. The advantage to this process is that the file is loaded when needed, and it never increases the size of the original Flash movie. Flash performs a calculation on the files as it’s loading, when it has enough of the audio file; it begins playing, while it continues to download the remaining information in the background. For large audio files, this cuts down on long wait times, and keeps the visitor from becoming bored. Streaming MP3 files are not part of a pre-existing Flash movie, they’re just available from a common location.
