    Putting keyframe in flash video

    Sawtooth500 Level 1

      I need to put a key frame in an .flv file

       

      More specifically, I'm just converting a video into FLV using the Adobe Media Encoder. I'm primarily a web designer, not a video guy, I've always just used the built in Insert FLV function in Dreamweaver to put Flash Video in. However, when autoplay is off I need to know how to control what frame shows up on the front of the video before it starts playing. Thanks!

          I think what you want is called a "poster frame" and as far as I know there isn't any way to do that when creating an FLV. If there is I'd love to hear about it.

           

          You could either edit the original so that it has one frame at the beginning or take a screen shot from your moving, bring it into flash and write some code to have it show over the flv player and then go away when the movie starts.

           

          If anybody else knows something more...
