Chapter 25. Video > Using Media Components

Using Media Components

If you don't want to directly embed video in your Flash file, you can use the media components. As we saw in Chapter 24, “Sound,” media components let you stream video and sound from the server, provided it's in the right format. In the case of Flash, that means FLV format.

TIP

FLV stands for Macromedia Flash Video. The format belongs to Macromedia, but most of the current digital video editors are capable of exporting to the FLV format. However, if you don't have a digital video editor like Final Cut Pro, you can download an FLV formatter for free from Macromedia's web site, or export video from Flash to the FLV format using the Library properties.
