I'm compressing a 2 minute 15 second trailer for a website and they are having me make two FLV files (Large and small.) I have customized the settings per their instructions. As there is no FLV player on the mac, I have to open the files up on my pc and use the free flv player I found on the web just to check the quality. The constant bit rate file plays right away, but the VBR versions of the files seem to take around 10-20 seconds to start up in my player. Is there a bug in Squeeze 4.1 when using a VBR setting for flv files? Or is this just standard for VBR files to take a while to cache? My thought was the VBR 2 pass setting would make a cleaner,smaller file vs. the constant bit rate.
Appreciate any insight into this. And Ben if your reading this, I got your DVD with the latest purchase of squeeze, but have not had time in between editing to watch it :-)
