Question about Macromedia Captivate for PC

2 Answers

Audio out of sync

Uploaded swf to web site plays first slide twice.

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Jan 08, 2008

    The first few seconds of the Captivate video (after the loading screen) shows up greyed out, enough that you can see the application, but then replays in full color and contrast again, which throws the audio out of sync for the rest of the video.

    Once the user has loaded the video the first time and it is cached in their browser the video plays fine. Other videos that are not cached still have the problem until after they are loaded the first time.

Captivate creates a single filestream of each audio clip you add your project. As you make changes to the audio, such as replace the audio on a given slide with a different audio clip, Captivate sometimes ignores your new clip and does not embed or include it in the main audio stream. I experienced many headaches with this issue until I stumbled on a fix that works for pretty much all Captivate audio problems.


Open your original Captivate file that you are experiencing audio problems with. Then in a separate Captivate session, create a new BLANK project with the same screen size settings as your original Captivate file. One by one copy the files from your original into the new blank project. Afterwards you may have to adjust some of your objects on your timeline for a slide or two. Uusually I don't have to do this step unless I have several clickbox items. Once you have copied and adjusted all your slides, save the file and publish. This resolves your audio problems.


Why does this work? I suspect that it creates an entirely new main audio filestream as you copy and past the individual slides for the new Captivate file. I stimbled across this after trying to fix my audio problems by copying all the slides from my original and pasting into a new blank project in one operation. That did not work, then I thought of trying to eliminate the old main audio filestream by this method. Afterwards I repeated this action on all my Captivate projects with audio problems and it fixed all of them.

If you have a YouTube Account then this is easy just follow the embed button...


If you have a YouTube Account then this is easy just follow the embed button after you have uploaded your media

There is at the moment no easy way to do this however if you have the SWF or FLV hosted at another site then you can embed it using these codes

This example shows an embedded shockwave flash banner called valentines_animation.swf that has been uploaded to www.amarasoftware.com and then macromedia flash player is called to play it from the plugins page

da385d8.jpg

All you need to do is copy and paste this HTML and but it into your blog to test to see if it works.


If you want to have a go at creating your own and want to upload it yourself and then use it on your blog then either download the trail version HERE to see what the software has to offer of create one for yourself using Adobe Photoshop and Image Ready check out my FLASH tip on how to do this

If you have created a SWF you can upload it to a FREE SWF server then check out k-directors blog that will tell you where to upload it.

EXAMPLE 1
Register for an imageshack account the same people who run yfrog
Using ImageShack Uploader you can upload suitable SWF to your online account.

The formats are supported:
  • avi ** - audio video interleave
  • flv - adobe flash
  • mov - quicktime or sorenson
  • swf - shockwave flash
** so if you have an mpg4, divx, xvid rename the file extension to avi

Open the uploader and sign in with your imageshack account details and then drag and drop OR browser for you video media if you use the batch tagger and select if the media is PUBLIC or PRIVATE

e282727.jpg

When uploaded then all you need to do is to click the get code for website this is the same for a weblog

e474756.jpg

Then copy and paste the embed code to your blog notice that imageshacks own flvplayer will be used as opposed to the macromedia version in the example above.

EXAMPLE 2

Using SWFCabin to upload your SWF it will give you a URL where your object has been stored this is an example using a banner from the Internet Download Manager website for advertising and earning 20% of the sale of there software if the link originates from your website.

http://www.swfcabin.com/open/1277814412


With this URL code you will then require a method of posting or embedding the SWF into your site the easiest way to do this is using Javascript as in the example shown above.

On way you can do this is to use SWFObject v2.0 now hosted on Google pages details of how to do this is from deconcepts blog where the earlier versions are still hosted. This is a more complicated method an should not be attempted by beginners.

EXAMPLE 2

If you use this HTML code to embed your SWF you will still need to use an image hosting website you will need to replace the file_url and the width and height with the URL that the image host gives you and the exact pixel measurements

e43f6f2.jpg

This method is best used on hosting sites that don't give you the HTML code automatically I prefer the first example for ease , The next example is only for advanced users and is normally used on websites not blogs but if you know how it can still be used with Wordpress powered blogs.


EXAMPLE 3

Using SWFCabin to upload your SWF it will give you a URL where your object has been stored this is an example using a banner from the Internet Download Manager website for advertising and earning 20% of the sale of there software if the link originates from your website.

I can't open videos requiring flash player eventhough i've already installed it


If you have Adobe flash player on your computer and you get the message on youtube to download the latest version of Adobe or turn on your Java in place of the video you want to watch, then look at your toolbar at the top of the screen and if there is a pink bar that says the website wants to run an Add On for Adobe flashplayer then click on it and select Allow Add On or Blocked content and the video should run fine.
