Just saw your post. You need to use a video object, not the FLVPlayback component.
right-click in your library and choose New Video.
make sure its 'actionscript-controlled'
once its in the library drag it to the stage and name it my_video.
FYI I got your flv working no problems.
That's it! Thanks!
Unfortunately, the video's bit rate is pretty low. I believe it was around 350 kb/s. So the forced deblocking doesn't seem to add much to the quality of the video.
My boss, of course, wants to have his cake AND eat it: he wants the display the video pretty large (550 by 413), with smooth playback, audio and video in sync, a minimum amount of compression artifacts and a minimum of preload/buffering time.
Any ideas about what bitrates are appropriate these days, and any other "best practices" for flash video?
I'm no expert in video. In terms of 'best practices' I would just aim for the best quality that your users can handle in terms of bandwidth. Livedocs says that deblocking is not usually necessary for highbandwidth video. I don't know at what level their reference to 'high bandwidth' kicks in.
The other thing is that if you have users across a range of bandwidth you might want to consider mutiple encodes to accomodate different users connection speeds. You could argue the case with your boss.
