Embedding Sound with Flash, Part III: Streams

Checking for the Loaded Percentage

The FlashSound JavaScript API's PercentLoaded() method returns the percent of the swf loaded into the browser. Values are between 0 and 100. I have yet to come across a SWF ("swiff") that will return a value that is smaller than 100 after embedding it in a Web page, including stream sync tracks.

Click the following link to play a Flash stream track which is a tutorial on FlashSound. We put two alert statements. One that prints the value of PercentLoaded() before embedding the tutorial, and one that prints its value after embedding the tutorial SWF. Notice that the value of PercentLoaded() is 0 before embedding, and 100 after it:

Play the Tutorial

Here is the source code:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT SRC="flashsound.js"></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT>
  var mySoundObj = new FlashSound();
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<P><A HREF="javascript://"
  onmouseover="mySoundObj.TGotoAndPlay('/',1)">
    Rewind and Play the Tutorial</A>
  <A HREF="javascript://"
  onmouseover="mySoundObj.TStopPlay('/')">Pause</A>
  <A HREF="javascript://"
  onmouseover="mySoundObj.TPlay('/')">Continue</A>
  <A HREF="javascript://"
  onmouseover="alert(mySoundObj.IsPlaying('/'))">
    Is Playing?</A></P>
<SCRIPT>
  alert("Before Embedding, PercentLoaded() returns " +
    mySoundObj.PercentLoaded());
  mySoundObj.autostart = false;
  mySoundObj.embedSWF("earsonly.swf");
  alert("After Embedding, PercentLoaded() returns " +
    mySoundObj.PercentLoaded());
</SCRIPT>
</BODY>
</HTML>
