Re: audio out of sync

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.

how to create your own .swf video and post up on internet.

SWF info:

The Flash File Format (SWF) was designed as a very efficient delivery format that was initially designed to deliver vector graphics and animation over the Internet. It was designed to meet the following goals:

On-screen Display—The format is primarily intended for on-screen display and so it supports anti-aliasing, fast rendering to a bitmap of any color format, animation and interactive buttons.

Extensibility—The format is a tagged format, so the format can be evolved with new features while maintaining backward compatibility with older players.

Network Delivery—The files can be delivered over a network with limited and unpredictable bandwidth. The files are compressed to be small and support incremental rendering through streaming. SWF is a binary format and is not human readable like HTML. Macromedia Flash (SWF) uses techniques such as bit-packing and structures with optional fields, to minimize file size.

Simplicity—The format is simple so that the player is small and easily ported. Also, the player depends upon only a very limited set of operating system functionality.

File Independence—Files can be displayed without any dependence on external resources such as fonts.

Scalability—Different computers have different monitor resolutions and bit depths. Files work well on limited hardware, while taking advantage of more expensive hardware when it is available.

Speed—The files are designed to be rendered at a high quality very quickly.

Don't want to do any code work?

Audio out of sync

You may want to put the audio into the microphone-in of your laptop and make menu selections for audio via that line-in port when recording. I found as well that the audio sync was out of whack when trying to have it go with the video through the EasyCap..

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.

Plat swf files sequentionally from xml

I've finished your requirement almost but how do you read the swf files from the xml one by one? My code will parse the xml and open the swf files one by one and so you can only view the last swf file.

var myXML:XML=new XML();
        for(var aNode:XMLNode = this.firstChild.firstChild;aNode!=null;aNode=aNode.nextSibling){

And your sampleFiles.xml should look like this:
