     Hi so as you see from the title above I'm having tons of issues with audio. At first I was not able to import audio into the library. While I did solve that, now I cannot HEAR the audio when I drag along the timeline OR just hit the play button. I feel like there's some really easy solution to this, but I wouldn't have any idea as to what it is.

If you want to scrub the timeline and hear sound, or if you want to play the sound from somewhere other than the start, you would need to be using an Actions Script 3 FLA, and have the Properties sync option for the sound be set to Stream.

HTML5 Canvas only does Event sync. If you have to make your animation work in HTML5 in the end, first work on the animation as AS3, so you can use Stream sync, then when you're happy with the timing you can use the Commands menu to Convert to Other Document Formats, to make an HTML5 Canvas version.

I will check a few other strings I see in related conversations, but I'm here reading this one from last year so I'll ask here as well: what if it is set to AS3 and Stream but you still don't hear audio when scrubbing through as I've seen some demos on Youtube doing successfully? (I DO hear audio when I hit enter or press the play button though; being able to hear while scrubbin through would greatly assist me in moidying the lip synch process however!). Thank you for any added assistance. 🙂

That's extremely impractical and information that would should be on a need to know basis before selecting a project type.

Which was the part that is extremely impractical?

For anyone else who chances across this 8 month old post, it's worth noting that the convert option is now on the File menu (File/Convert To...), and not in the Commands menu in the later versions of Animate.

And I'm not sure he understands what "need to know basis" means.

Thank you for this answer, it worked! 

Some notes for implementing this answer:

You need to click on the frame with the audio on in order for the window with changing the Sync to Stream option to become available to you. The properties Sync option can be found in Window - Properties - Frame. 

 

Thanks again man, lots of love ❤️
