i am currently making an a presentation application in as3
which plays video and has overlays over the video. In order to keep
synchronization the video and overlays are combined as an swf file.
The problem i have is the imported flv video which is only 2mb
before importing it into flash grows to about 7mb when exported as
an swf and i see no improvement in picture quality.
i understand there must be a sacrifice of bigger file size to
get the video playing as an swf i just want to know the optimum
settings i should be using to get the best results. I was ripping
from dvd, compressing, then importing into flash.Should i do my
first compression when importing into flash? and if so what
settings should i be using. I just want low quality broadband
friendly video in swf
