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.

Thread: Loop video but play audio once only

  1. #1

    Loop video but play audio once only

    Hi there,

    I need to create a flash video for a website of a product rotating through 360 degrees - looping seamlessly. This will be 100 frames long. I then need to add a 500 frame voice over.

    I need to optimize file sizes so what is the best way to tackle this?

    Is there a way to loop the video with actionscript but not the audio? i.e. rather than extend and repeat the video phyiscally in the timeline inlind with the audio length - as I assume this will increase the file size?

    I'm using flash cs4 and only have basic knowledge of flash.

    Any help or actionscipt advice would be most appreciated.

    ok - so will this be an actual 'video' or timeline animation? is the audio embedded in the video?

    i would suggest that you isolate the elements, and use code to play the audio as/when desired, and just let the video loop - BUT it would also be possible to play an FLV, etc and 'turn off' the audio on the second loop - however, if this is product related it may be suitable provide a button to allow the user to 'replay' the audio to listen again

    you could 'stream' either or both of these elements to a 'loading' swf file - then you have a lightweight front-end - but it takes a bit of coding to do so and could be done better in AS3

    I'll try this and see how I get on - many thanks
