I have authored a CD in Director using flash video.
My Flash movie rate is 25 with a 15frame interval.

In director I have left the frame rate as normal.

Everything is fine until I test on some older computers, then the playback is not good.
Is there a way around this? Really need to supply to the lower end market.

Many thanks in advance.

RE: playback slow on older computers.

The Flash movie playback in Director can be very slow. Make sure the SWF is set to "direct to stage" (DTS) and never place multiple SWFs on stage.

Do you have to use FLV?  QuickTime is probably better for displaying a video in Director. Reducing the frame rate of your video may help as well.
