Point StencylWorks' workspace to a Dropbox folder.

For what purpose? StencylForge for backups is fine.

//Edit: Also dropbox synchro happens only when you using gnome/nautilus. I using kde/dolphin.

There are no impossible things. There is only lack of skills.
Don't click this if your computer has less than 641 kilobytes of RAM.

Your missing the point...

Pointing SW's workspace to a Dropbox folder would use your account frequently. If you also use SW frequently, of course (and i suspect you do at least every 90 days).

Also, the point of SW + Dropbox isn't so much for backups but, in my case, it allows me to work with the same workspace on any computer. It's like a cheap and automatic SVN, without the revisioning part.

I second this suggestion. I use Dropbox for the same purpose, and it works great.

But still...

Anyway I own only one computer so synchro part is a bit useless for me.

There are options, if you're interested. And like others have said, you can use it for more than syncing:

Do the main flash game portals support streaming audio or video files from somewhere else? I have experience with only one (Crazy Monkey) and they wanted everything to be in the flash file.

Kongregate and Newgrounds support this for sure. For the other I don't know.

This is one of the reasons I have a dislike for certain flash movies and games. Noticably bad sound quality; just sounds unprofessional.

If you want to make your sounds and music sound... terrible, then you can compress them on your own with the same effect.

Yes, but this is going off the point of stencyl (i.e A fast, easy way to make games)

Anyway, I think that we should be able to select what bitrate we want, and whether to auto convert.
