Video and Audio for Windows 7

Postby storymakerpro » Sun Jul 11, 2010 6:11 pm

Since AM 4.6.0 that compile EXE for Windows 7. Our forum told us that audio volume cannot be

adjusted and video cannot be stretched or full screen.


AUDIO:
Problem: we cannot adjust volume.

Solved: download Audacity 1.3 and install if you don't have it, open it up and drag any

sound file into Audacity, on menu "Effects" (on top center screen), click on "Normalize" and set

it to -5.0 db or more if you want more louder.


VIDEO:
Problem: we cannot make video larger to full screen. Recommended is 800x600 since most computer

are 1024x768. The best is 800x600 which can fit into netbooks.

Solved: I use Corel VideoStudio X3 and create video to MPEG-2 (720x480). Close to full screen enough.

Do that, good luck! I'm just helping you all out.

Thanks for the solutions but the main problem with sound is that it can't be run from script...

Actually I don't use audio under script. I do that under Audio tab.

Are you saying that an audio problem in Windows 7? I don't know much about Windows 7 but I have one at work. Can't do that in their computers.

The newest version of AM removed some of the sound features to be compatible with win7

What's about this code from GMSupoort:

Code: Select all
If Action.IsComponentInstalled("NSPlay.NSPlayCtl.1") = False Then
    MsgBox "Unable to find the media player component.", vbCritical, "Error"
Else
   If Action.DoesComponentExist("MediaPlayer1") = false Then
      AddComponent "NSPlay.NSPlayCtl.1", "MediaPlayer1"
   End If
   Component("MediaPlayer1").Object.FileName = "c:\Clapping.wav" '(replace with your file)
   Component("MediaPlayer1").Object.PlayCount = 1
   Component("MediaPlayer1").Object.Play
End If


I dont have tested it, I just found it here:
