Video in Flash

Video on the Web is one of the most exciting (and high-bandwidth) types of content out there. And Flash has not forgotten this in Flash MX 2004 Professional. With a new import wizard and the ability to cut segments from imported videos and string them back together as one, Flash has never looked better when it comes to video integration.

Importing Video into Flash

Flash MX has new, powerful support for video. Video can play natively inside the Flash 7 Player. Flash supports DV, MPEG, WMV, MOV, AVI, and Flash Video FLV. Once the video is in the authoring environment, you can scale, skew, distort, mask, and rotate it, and make it interactive using scripting. Both the Flash 6 and 7 players can support video. It is important to note that the support for video in Flash is ideal only for short video pieces, no longer than a few minutes or a few megabytes in file size. By no means is the Flash Player going to act as a substitute for any of the media players, such as QuickTime or Windows Media Player in the way they handle large video files.
