View Full Version : AVI or Flash File

Hi guys,

I am doing a site for an architect. He wants to be able to show an avi file on the site. Is it better to put a flash file on and if so, can I convert losslessly from avi to flash?(or at least not a lot of loss of quality).

avi files are usually HUGE.
take it into the flash video encoder (flash pro) where you can specify height width, compression level of both audio and video (with the soerensen codec) and you got a flv file you can call from a web friendly swf file :)

Thanks Dom.

Just a word to Dom and Davidj. I just finished my 1st Class honours degree in Commercial Software Development after 7 years by night. And I can safely say, I learned a lot more through this site than I ever did in college.

So thanks to Davidj and Dom in particular for all the help over the last couple of years.

Look forward to many more years of collaboration with you all.

Thanks Dreamweaver Club.
