Where did you find this "encouragement?"
AFAIK the official Adobe H.264 format is F4V (thats the default in the CS4 Video Encoder)
Thank you for the response.
1] We have read the FAQ corresponding to Flash Player:9:Update:H.264, under the link http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Flash_Player:9:Update:H.264 Pls see Question 4.10 there. I understand that this suggests that Adobe encourages MP4 based container format for H.264. This understanding is strengthened by the fact that most of the H.264 videos from youtube were actually in MP4 container, instead of FLV. Also when we uploaded a H.264 video on youtube, it converted to MP4 instead of FLV. Could you share your comments on these observations?
2] Agreed F4V format is for H.264. However I understand that FLV also fully supports H.264. Then what does one choose and when and why? Also why this duplication (if it is) in format specification?
3] If possible could also address other questions posted on the forum
Relates to playing of FLV file created as per Adobe document.
Relatest to live streaming of FLV stream.
