Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Rewinding a MP3 with ActionScript

  1. #1

    Rewinding a MP3 with ActionScript

    I just completed the "Playing Sounds using ActionScript" tutorial. I figured out a button to rewind the sound to the begining. Is there a way to also rewind the sound, say two or three seconds each time the user clicks the rewind button?

    I've been using Flash since v4, but haven't ventured too far into ActionScript beyond the Movie Controls, so any help is much appreciated!

    Depends. If you used AS to load the sound in, i've got no idea =[, but if the sound is actually on the timeline, a simple prevFrame() would do. If you want more time rewinded, I would just paste prevFrame() as many times as frames you want rewinded. Then again, i am pretty bad, so theres probably a much better way to do it =P

    I used the "Playing Sounds with ActionScript" tutorial on this site, so no, it's not on the timeline. Here's the script I used on the play button (similar script on the stop and start over buttons):

    on (release) {
    welcomeClip = new Sound(this);
    welcomeClip.start(0, 1);

    You can use the sound method "position".

    I've been trying to figure it out, but if you can do it for yourself, that would be great. You have to find a way to get your _root.welcomeClip.position and be able to subtract the amount of seconds you want it to go back every time you you release *1000. Gonna keep trying to figure it out, but Good Luck to you.
