    From MC to WWW - 2. Encoding

    Getting from the MC timeline onto the Web causes lots of confusion.
    Mainly because of the many variations in video formats and codecs.
    There is no way that a set of 3 tutorials could cover all possibilities.

    Taking the simple approach I will show you my workflow and then leave it up to you to discover if and how you can use any of my ideas in developing your own workflow.

    The second tutorial describes one way of encoding your material to a flash (flv) file and wrapping it in a "skin".

    I use a programme from On2 Technologies by the name of FlixPro. (I believe that a simpler version of the programme - Flix - can achieve the same results as FlixPro in my tutorial).
    Using FlixPro cuts out the need to use a 3rd party encoder such as Procoder or Sorenson Squeeze.

    Good luck!

    Hi Douglas

    I have been folowing your advice, and bought FlixPro as part of that process.  I have someother questions, but I'll put those in another post as they are uploading issues.

    I like the skin you use, but it is no longer listed in the product.  Do you know if it is possible to get more skins for FlixPro?

    Thank you so much for your tutorials.

    Hello John,

    A lot has happened in the world of Flix since I made this tutorial.

    Google bought Flix (or maybe they bought On2, I am not quite sure)

    Then Wildform bought it from Google!

    Today it is Wildform that are developing and marketing Flix and FlixPro.

    They have a set of players on their website.

    http://www.wildform.com/products/flair/plugins.php

    It is the Power Players that you need.

    By the way where did you buy FlixPro from?
    Was it from Wildform?

    Regards,
    Douglas

    Thanks Douglas

    Yes, I bought it from Wildform.  Once I get the main issue sorted I'll probably buy the plugin pack.

    Thank you, John
