I want to play other types of video files (e.g. avi, ogg,
mpg) in Flex. As far as I know, the VideoDisplay component in Flex
is only able to play .flv file. Is there other options to playing
these video files in Flex?
I've managed to use the NetStream class to play .MP4 &
.MOV files. From what I observed, the MP4 & MPV files need to
be encoded using H264 (video) & AAC/MP3 (audio) for it to be
able to play in Flash.
My next question is what are the suitable server to stream
these files? I am trying to play a live feed from an AV capture
card streamed from another PC. Due to scalability issue, I need to
stream it as http instead of the rtmp protocol supported by Flash.
