FP10 Bug Report: Garbled audio with higher than 44KHz sampling rate

Posted December 19, 2008 by senocular

Something to keep an eye out for if you use audio files with a sampling higher than 44Khz: songs with higher than 44KHz sampling rate playback incorrectly (FP-862). This is a Flash Player 10 bug that affects older content. More specifically, if you use (AS2) Sound.loadSound() with an audio file that has a sampling rate higher than 44KHz, the playback of that audio will be garbled.

The simple solution: change your audio to use a sampling rate of 44Khz instead. Keep an eye on the bug for any changes in status for the issue.
