my name is francesco and I'm writing from Italy. I've just got captivate 4 and I need to show in my presentations some videos. I don't have flash editor on my pc (I can't afford it at the moment) and what I do is to get different type of videos (.avi, .wmv ,.mpeg, etc.) and edit them with windows movie maker. I process the .wmv file that I get out from movie maker with a program called "free flv converter vers 1.4.0". Then I import in my captivate project the file that I converted (which now is a .flv file) and during the presentation it stops after few seconds of playing...!
The wierdest thing is that the first time I did the all thing it worked fine but all the others times I had the same problem... can you guys tell me something about it
p.s. I did my best writing the all thing in english... please don't make fun of me...
Your writing seems better than some I've seen of folks that were born and raised in the US. Besides, that would be awfully rude of someone to make fun of another's writing.
When it comes to Flash Video, perhaps my fellow Adobe Community Expert John Daigle's site will help here. Click here to visit John's site.
I do know that your FLV files need metadata in order to work properly in Captivate. I think John's site has more information on that.
Best of luck to you... Rick
That was very helpful man....
You're right, there's a metadata problem (I didn't even know what the hell
they were) and hopefully I'll solve the problem with a couple of
I'll let you know
Later and thanks again...
