Help embedding FLV flash video


Hey, I have a movie which I converted to flash video (FLV) using ffmpeg. How do I embed it in my HTML file so that it plays on all major browsers with flash installed, and, how can I add play, stop, etc. controls to it?

The file is test.swf and it's 320x240...

Flash is a proprietary format, and the folks at Macromedia guard it zealously.

So there is NO open-source Flash renderer. You have to use a Linux plug in, provided by Macromedia, that happens to work with Open source browsers like Mozilla and Firefox.

There *are* open-source libraries to help you *create* Flash files, but none to help you *display* them.

(If that's in fact what you're asking. You might instead be asking this: http://www.w3schools.com/flash/flash_inhtml.asp)

Sorry .. PSM

PS:
What happened with that "Midnight slowdown"?

PPS:
"Moho" is an excellent animation package for Linux. It also happens to generate Flash (among many other formats). It's not free, but it's VERY good and (IMHO) a bargain at $99.00. Check it out:

Hi, MicahCarrick -

By pure coincidence, somebody else posted a similar question ... and it turns out that there *IS* an Open Source Flash renderer out there:

I ended up using ffmpeg to convert the MOV files to flv files, then flvtool2 to insert the metadata, and then FlowPlayer (http://flowplayer.sourceforge.net/) to give the movie a nice little player window in the website.
