Stopping Flash SWF auto loop

How do I stop a Flash SWF output from ToonBoom auto looping?

In Quicktime I can set a parameter in the html. But in Flash the only way I know to do this is to put a “Stop()” in the last keyframe. I can’t see the option for this in the TB Flash export option list.


The looping is a default setting of the swf format. If you want the video to stop once the video played once you have 2 options:

1. Add actionscript to your project to put a stop on the last frame. This will requite an actionscripting tool.

2. In your webpage (the html code), in the parameters of the swf you embedded in your page there is an option you can add which allows you to disable loop. This parameters needs to be setup differently for different web browser so you may need to add the 2 looping option for both Explorer and Firefox. The code should be something like this:

<embed src=“FlaArticle3.swf” width=“320” height=“240” loop=“False” quality=“high” pluginspage=“” type=“application/x-shockwave-flash”>

Best regards,


Thanks again Ugo
That did the trick.

I thought it would be something easy like that. I even tried the param name setting…but just missed the ’ loop=“false” ’ part.

And just so you don’t think I didn’t google this first… :wink:
I had found this Adobe Flash document…which gave me the impression you needed the Adobe tool to set the loop value and that it wasn’t just a variable in the html file.
