How to make the SWF file smaller..?
on Mar 7, 2013 at 7:56:06 pm


I am trying to make for my school project a 4x 1920x1080 screen installation.

The problem is that the file lags.

- 4x 1920x1080 screen swf files with basic action script to call the external xml file where I have written some text on it.

- I have inserted 40sec flv file into the swf file, which the file size is 22mb each, infinite loop.

When the screens are being played, screens start to lag.
I have verified that there is no action script problem but the files played making lag.

I am using a quad-core PC with 2x dual VGA out video card (512mb).

I have tried to imitate the FLV animation with flash itself, but the the tweens inserted is also making the screen lag.

The CPU usage is around 60% but it is still doing that..
Would someone know the reason of this issue?

What would be the best solution to make the screen not lag...
Can a CPU, RAM or GPU upgrade would improve the performance...?
Yes... Yes... Yes... With out animation, just a plane image, the file does not lag lol.

First step might be to check the compression settings on your video / flv file. It sounds like your flv file may be large or demanding to load off disc / decompress. Try your swf player with a small, simple flv and see if the problem persists; if not, try recompressing your flv with a lower data rate. Let us know how you get on.
