    .flv vs. embedded media player

    BobMelnyk Level 1

      I have devleoped a video player which plays videos in a playlist which have been encoded into .flv files. I'm wondering what the advantage is to that over using an embedded windows media player instead. Right now I have to take a .wmv file and encode it into a .flv file, then upload the .flv in order to play it. Why not just upload the .wmv and play it with an embedded media player? Documentation I have read seems to indicate that the better way is to use .flv, but I was wondering if I could get a specific reason(s) for why .flv is better to use than embedded media player. Thanks for any insight.
