Yes, I'd like to know how to do this as well. Especially as
it's no longer a Beta product. What good is a player that supports
H.264 if the encoder still only has the 2 choices of Sorenson Spark
and On2VP6? Can someone please explain?
You just need to encode your video (not flv) with QT pro or
any other product that creates CLEAN mp4 files., then update your
flash IDE version to 9.0.2 (you can update your software by going
Ensure you've downloaded FP 9.0.115 and then follow this
I created an H264 video using Premiere, exporting through the
Adobe Media Encoder, but the resulting .mp4 movie won't play in
Flash 9. Other mp4 videos (ie. the samples that come with Flash
Media Server 3) play fine in my flash file, so I'm pretty sure it's
Why is finding information on actually encoding videos to
H264 so difficult? Even you just say "any other product that
creates CLEAN mp4 files"...what does that mean? Can't we get the
actual settings listed that we need to choose?
Any information around encoding correctly for the Flash
Player would be greatly appreciated!
I'm afraid I can't help you there because I use Final Cut
Studio to make my mp4s and it works beautifully. But then it would
because it's a native format for QuickTime.
One thing you might try is getting the full version of QT Pro
for the PC (I assume your on a PC) and use QT to export as mp4.
It's really cheap. Only £20 and well worth having. Once it's
loaded on your system you should even see it in your export options
straight from Premiere if I remember correctly. It's been years
since I made the switch to Mac. It's worth having it as an option
on your system anyway.
Thanks for the response, but I'd really like to know how to
do this with Premiere, since it's a tool I already have, versus
Quicktime, which I don't have and am not particularly interested in
Shame Adobe couldn't just put out a quick document telling us
how to do this, i'm sure it is really easy if you know what you are
doing (which I clearly do not).
I have no idea as I am still on XP and have no desire or
plans to move to Vista. I don't see any advantage from a production
point of view. It gives no added value for this sort of work and
can be a headache to get all the drivers you need to make these
apps work properly. Lots of bells and whistles for home use but
that's all as far as I can tell.
I was looking for a h264 encoder and found this:-
http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/download.htm Its an excellent free encoder and you dont have to be a
boffin to use it. Id recommend the 3 pass setting (Profile
High,Level 4.0) at around 500kbps using FAAC audio 22k hz
64kbps.This will give you suberb quality at very small file size
with decent audio to boot.(Source file should be High Quality)
Example of this here
http://meglomedia.com/groups/roxette/thecenterof.html The file size of this 4 minute video is around 15mb.It does
other formats too but I was looking specifically for H264 and this
fits the bill perfectly.
