Using .mov files
on Jul 31, 2009 at 2:42:51 am

I have video files I want to use, but I'd rather use .mov instead of .mp4/flv. How do I get Flash to use .mov?

You can't.

OK. Thanks.

You have any suggestions for the best way to encode video for Flash? I'm using Adobe Media Encoder now, but I'd like to use Compressor.

Sorry, but I'm not familiar with Compressor.

The compression parameters for creating a good flv file will be different from video to video. Those are some of the important ones:

Image size
Bitrate
Framerate

You need to get a good balance between image quality and compression, that will totally depend on your video. Transitions, camera movements and changing subjects (trees on the wind, water on a river) can be very demanding. The more still your image, the better compression you'll have.

I'll assume you have defined the size of your image. For the web 15fps is a good framerate. And for a bitrate you'll need to consider your target audience. Testing is unavoidable.

Thanks for the info. I'll give these some good testing.

I'm curious to see what the differences in frame rates do. I shot most my stuff in 30fps, so I usually encode it as such. I'll definitely try 15 and see what that shakes out.
