Chapter 8. Masks, Transitions, and Video > Loading Videos into Flash

Loading Videos into Flash

There are several ways to integrate videos into a Flash document. An easy way to display video in a SWF is to simply import the video (MPEG, AVI, MOV, FLV, and so on) directly onto the Stage or Library. Flash launches an import wizard in which you can control how the video imports. However, you can also load Flash video (FLV) at runtime, which you'll learn how to do in the following exercise.

Exporting FLV video

FLV is a Flash Video file. FLV files can contain both video and encoded audio if your video has some audio. FLV video can both export from Flash and be imported into an FLA filed or loaded into a SWF file at runtime. No compression takes place when you load or import FLV into FLA and SWF files. FLV is economical on file size and can also be streamed if you have the Flash Communication server.
