I'm surprised that you are not aware of this issue.  It appears to be a Flash 
issue, not one that is specific to swftools.  This is an article written by an 
Adobe engineer who works on flash on the subject...


As explained in this article, the fps setting is really just a sort of "goal" 
that the browser tries to hit.  But it would seem that different browsers give 
hitting that goal differing levels of priority, and different computers (even 
the same computer under differing loads) will have different amounts of 
resources to devote to the flash player.

In my research so far on this this issue, I have not seen a setting described 
that would for example allow the flash player to skip frames to hit the right 
frame rate.

My experience so far is consistent that described in the various different 
forum threads on the subject.  Safari is real slow.  Firefox seems to be in the 
middle, and IE is the fastest.


Any suggestions for how to embed flv video in a swf using swftools?  The 
articles that I have found on the subject so far all want actionscript to work 
with something called a video object that seems to be setup outside of 

var connection_nc:NetConnection;
var stream_ns:NetStream;
playVideo = function () {
connection_nc = new NetConnection();
stream_ns = new NetStream(connection_nc);

In the example above, the object at issue is "video1_video"

It does?  How come?  Care to post an example?  The frame rate is
specified/set on the first line, with the 'fps=x' bit ..

   .flash bbox=400x200 filename="electric.swf" version=10 fps=1

If it really is that bad(??) why not try reversing things, and match
the pictures to the sound?  Presumably the
mp3 files don't change tempo as well?!
