Video in Flash

Video on the web is one of the most exciting (and high bandwidth) kinds of content out there. And Flash has not forgotten this in Flash Professional 8. With a streamlined import wizard and the capability to cut segments from imported videos, Flash has never looked better when it comes to video integration—especially now that Flash has full support for the alpha channel in video, allowing you to completely remove the background.

Importing Video into Flash

Video can play natively inside the Flash 8 player or can be brought in at runtime as either a stream (if you have a streaming server) or progressive download (see Chapter 26, “Streaming Media,” for more details). The video formats Flash supports are as follows: DV, MPEG, WMV, MOV, AVI, and Flash Video FLV.
