changing the speed of an mp3

OK, I don't know if this is even possible, but I'm hoping so. I've got a slider in a movie, which I would like to make change the speed of an MP3 playing within the movie. Any ideas of how to go about it, or if it is indeed possible?

the reason this is not possible is do to the fact that a sound is played independent of the timeline...  so trying to use Actionscript to slow down the timeline would not work....

and there is no way to use Actionscript by itself to do this either....


there might be other suggestions that I can give i you explain in more detail about what you are trying to do...

Hi,

There is a way by which you can do this through ActionScript using the setInterval function and calling the nextFrame of the sounds movieclip

stop();

function playfps(delay){
   setInterval(playAndLoop,delay,this);
}

function playAndLoop(mc){
   mc.nextFrame();
   if(mc._currentframe == mc._totalframes){
      clearInterval(playAndLoop);
      mc.gotoAndStop(1);      
   }
}

playfps(1000);

// You will call this function based on the slider value. This will allow you to increase or decrease the speed of the sound.

Note: I take no ownership for this code I have used this sometime back from a site.

Thanks,
KP

KP,

I still don't think your code(or any code) can increase the speed of an MP3 that is being played in a SWF...

can you post an example of this...  it does not seem possible...

sorry, seemed that the code might speed up/slow down the clip, but with a jumpy sound effect. i have decided to stream the mp3s, so have given up on the idea of changing speed. however, if anyone from macromedia happens to read this, it is definately a feature i'd personally like to see in future versions of flash.
thanks for your help anyway guys
