Video Compression

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

I am getting frustrated, I am trying to create some sort of a workflow when compressing for our Flash 9 player to go to our web department (I am in post production). I have CS3 that comes with a Flash Video Encoder.

The content that goes to the web department is either a compressed file created from uncompressed 720x480 or 720x486 sources. I generally half the aspect ratio to 360x243 or 360x240 and give them the files for upload.

Does this workflow sound proper? Also, why are there so many different player sizes on the web. I saw a player with an aspect ratios of 387x286. Why is that, is there a secret I don't know? Oh, I also read that Flash 9 support H.264, is this true?

Any help would be appreciated...

Thank you,

OK, so why all the sizes? Why all the different shapes of pasta? Its all flour egg and water, lol… Different needs I guess. My day job is in internet advertising and trust me, there are all kinds of video sizes requested, wrap your head around 160x600 for instance.

Anyway to answer one of your other questions, yes H.264 is now a part of Flash:

Hope this helps

Thank you for the response!

When ever I try to play a H.264 file, it prompts me to re-encode the file. Why is that? I must be missing something.
