How to distribute one Flash video to many websites?
on Sep 12, 2008 at 6:11:25 pm

Hi All,

I have Flash videos (an FLV or executable) on Windows platform that I need many other web sites to imbed as if clients were seeing the video on their websites (not my website).

In other words, can I have one copy of my Flash video that is shown on many other websites? This way when I need to update my Flash video I only change it once and don't have to send out a new copy to many other websites. (I think Windows Media works this way.)

You can do this in multiple ways...

- Host both the .swf and .flv on your domain and give them the embed code to embed the .swf

So for instance http://www.mydomain.com would get a bit of html code that would display the .swf, that's hosted on your domain, on their site.

- Host the .flv on your domain and send them the .swf (basically, the 'player' into which the .flv gets loaded into. If you want to change the .flv you just have to overwrite the old .flv with the new one. (not the most elegant solution)

Note however, that in both cases, the bulk of the filesize (namely, the .flv) will be hosted on your domain, so whenever a user views that website on my site, that still counts as a view for your domain, so you will need to make sure you have enough bandwidth if a lot of people will be watching that .flv.

Kind regards,
Pieter

General notice: from now on, I would like to ask everyone to put [AS2] or [AS3] (corresponding to the version of actionscript you are using on your project) in front of their post titles when the question is actionscript related! Please help us help you faster. Thank you.
