Why doesn’t flash support midi files?? It would be so great if it did!
why would that be great?
midi is very limited. also you can just convert a midi to mp3 or whatever and probably get a smaller file size.
What are you talking about?? The compression of midi is the only reason I want Flash to support it! You can have a 4 minute long midi and it’ll be less than 100k !!
but still … midi’s don’t sound good
though it would be nice if flash would support them just b/c they’re there
maybe you can just put the midi in the html source on the page containing your flash movie
Well I’ll tell you why I wanted Flash to support MIDI in the first place:
If you’ll look in my profile and my website you’ll see that I’m a DOOM freak. And I wanted to make a DOOM game/movie in Flash and use the original DOOM soundtrack (I have utilities to extract the original music files) which are in MID format. Every such music file is approximately 3 to 5 minutes long! And less than 90K !!! So I thought it’ll be a real pain to convert a 90K music file to MP3 and get a 5 MB music file probably with worse sound quality! So I think it could be really awsome if Flash supported MIDI files.
