Flash CS4 unexpectedly quits

What a pain in the arse this was… reinstalled CS4 design premium twice to try and resolve but everytime I opened up an Adobe CS3 or CS4 file the Flash would unexpectedly quit. If I tried opening Flash CS4 first then opening the file, Flash would just hang and become non responsive.

It turns out the solution is quite simple, but perhaps time consuming. After readingĀ http://jobemakar.wordpress.com/2008/10/18/how-to-crash-flash-cs4-with-a-single-click/ I attempted the suggested fix of looking for corrupt fonts. Actually, I skipped the looking part and removed all the fonts from my fonts folder that Windows would allow me, then added the fonts from a work mates PC. All working happily now, the migration from CS3 to CS4 is complete.

Flash playing mp3 too fast on some machines

If you ever have a Flash file that plays your MP3’s like chipmunks have raided your record collection, try re-encoding your MP3 with a constant bit rate and a sample rate as a multiple of 44.1kHz. Newer Flash Player plugins have resolved this problem, however there are always old versions of Flash Player out there so it is the web developers duty to resolve.
