SWiSHzone.com products use the built-in ACM driver available in Windows 2000/XP to encode MP3. However this codec only supports audio < 44.1kHz. If you require 44.1kHz audio files you will need to use a different MP3 encoder. Windows Vista and Windows 7 do not ship with a built-in MP3 encoder so an MP3 encoder is necessary to export sound.
Windows Vista and Windows 7 do not include a built-in MP3 encoder. An MP3 encoder is necessary to export sounds in your Flash animations. We recommend all Vista and Windows 7 users download and install the LAME ACM MP3 Codec as described below.
One freeware option is the LAME ACM encoder developed by the The Lame Project. To use this encoder you need to agree to the Licensing terms included in the installer.
SWiSH Video3 (and Video2) will export using Flash 8 video (SWF8) if an appropriate VFW codec is installed. You can find the codec via a google search using e.g. "VP6 VFW Codec 6.4.2" i.e. codec version v6.4.2. Use a CODEC, not a DECODER. There are many decoders labelled as codecs which will not work.
This pack is an older edition which still includes the "On2 Technologies VP6 Video Codec 6.4.2". It is possible to selectively install only this codec in the installation process. The steps to install are:
Select the Destination Location dialogue. Simply accept default install location.
Select components dialogue and choose Custom Selection. Deselect all but VP6 (listed under 'Other video formats').
Select Additional Tasks dialogue and leave all checkboxes unticked - just select 'Next'.
Ready to Install - Click on 'Install'.
