Audio .swf continues to play on next slide

May 20, 2014

I have inserted a .swf file that is an avatar created in Codebaby.  I inserted the file as a video, not as a flash. Occasionally, when I use the Prev or Next button to move to another slide, the .swf avatar audio continues to play on the next slide. 

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Thank you!

Hi Missy and welcome to Heroes! 

Do you have your slides set to advance automatically, or by the user? You could try adding a trigger to "Stop media" when the timeline ends, if it's advancing automatically. If it's advancing by user, maybe a trigger for the "Next" button with the same function would work.

If that doesn't keep the audio from playing when you move to the next slide, are you able to share your project's .STORY file, so I can take a look?

Thanks Ashley. My slides are set to advance by user, but adding triggers to "Stop Media" when clicking the Next or Previous did not work.  I tried using .flv files instead of the .swf files and I did not have the same audio issues as I do with .swf files.

Since .swf files are not compatible with HTML5, and we have access to the .flv files, we've decided to use the .flv videos.

Thanks you so much for your help,
