    I want to use Flash MX 2004 to create a small, simple box with both a Play and a Stop button, for insertion into HTML pages.

    Upon page load, I want it to play an external sound file and, if possible, to mirror the sound levels visually in the form of a small LED-style graph or, even better, concentric circles emanating from the box.

    I'm new to Flash but have got a good understanding of scripting and servers.

    What I would like to know is, has this or something similar already been done elsewhere? Do reliable components exist which will make it easier for me? Where should I start looking? And are the Help files that come with Flash good enough for me to learn what I need or is there a book I should use instead?

    Any and all advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Donnacha

    I have not used flash mx 2004 yet.. but AFAIK flash is unable to detect different sound frequencys so the LED-style graph effect cannot be achieve with flash alone. But there are ways you could achieve this using outside software like swiftmp3 witch converts mp3's into swf files. However if you are not worried about accuraccy. You could simply have some timeline or randome actionscript motion tweens to give the illusion of an spectrum analizer.
