Hi all, i posted my website in the review section and some of the feedback i got (and this only happenes on some computer i think) is that the animation is chugging along, almost as if the frame rate is too low, however i made my site with the frame rate at 25. can the web ONLY display 12 fps and thats why my animation is lagging or is there another reason? what can i do to make my animation smooth??

It's not the web that displays your movie, it's the computer viewing the movie. So the framerate at which a movieclip plays depends on the speed of that computer. If that computer is rather slow, the framerate will be low too.

exactly -- it has nothing to do with the web. One thing you also have
to consider, is did you preload your movie? Sometimes I've found
this very helpful in preventing lagging, or at least keeping it to a minimum,
even on older, slower machines.

Basically, if you set the fps at 25 and the computer can handle it, it will
show at 25fps no question.

Yeah I used to try to make flash music videos and the music would be off from the actions so what i did was added a preloader and that fixed the problem.

That's right, it all depends on what the computer viewing the movie is able to handle.

But also, on Macs the FPS rate is actually different. The plugin for the the mac is weird when it comes to FPS rates, it typically plays slower. I don't know the exact stats on that though.

Either way, 25 should be a smooth FPS rate so my guess would be it is the computer viewing it.
