Optimizing a CD-ROM Developed In Flash glaze msg:1563031 10:20 pm on Aug 6, 2004 (gmt 0) I've created a CD-ROM in Flash that includes FLVs, MP3s, and many SWF files. So far it's up to about 450MB.
It seems to play back a lot slower off of a CD-ROM that it does locally.
Are there specific techniques to optimize playback off of a CD-ROM?
Are there resources on the Web for developing CD-ROMs in Flash?

There isn't much you can do. Flash wasn't created to offer multimedia contents on cd-roms. It was created for Web delivery. Director is a better choice for cd-roms, but that's another story. markanthony msg:1563033 7:51 pm on Aug 17, 2004 (gmt 0)
What is playing back slower?
The animation...reaction to button clicks?
How much of the 450mb are you loading up at once?
Some additional information and I may have some optimization tips for you.

Thanks, here's some more info:
-my main problem is the page turn effect I'm using which can be found here: [
It's so slow on older machines that I think I need to offer an alternative navigation. That said, if anyone has an idea for how i can work a toggle button to deactivate the page turn effect while still maintaining navigability I would greatly appreciate it.
I would even pay for this service if someone wants to contact me at glaze_33@hotmail
