Flash not taking Compressor files
on Aug 1, 2009 at 1:44:49 am

OK - I have a video, that I have compressor using Apple's Compressor. My end goal is to use this video in Flash on a website. My problem is that whatever file format I compress the video into, Flash doesn't recognize it. I've even tried just running the full and compressed videos through Adobe Encoder, but I end up with a file that is so large, it isn't even realistic.

Suggestions for compressing for Flash? Should I migrate over to using Quicktime videos on my websites? I seem to get smaller files compressing to .mov.

Here is all the essential info:
Computer: MacPro 2 x 3.0 Quad-Core Intel
OS: Mac OSX 10.5.7
Final Cut Studio: Got the brand new update for the full studio
Source: .mov files from FCP. Files are AVC I believe - from the Panasonic HMC-150
Detination codec: Anything that Flash will recognize. I'd like to use .mov files if Flash will see them. Will use any others if necessary.
Type of use: For a website.

H.264 .mov can be "wrapped" in an SWF Player and will play in a browser with Flash 9 Update 9 (Dec 2007) and later.

Awesome.

Do you by any chance know how to wrap a .mov file into a swf?

Thanks for your help.
