Dreamweaver can add a FLV file to a page no problem. It won't encode a video as FLV though. Adobe does offer this as a free tool if you own one of the creative suite's with the Adobe Media Encoder.

I own the CS3 suite... what are the steps I need to take to put an flv movie file into a dreamweaver page.. how would I need to 'encode' it.? sorry.. im a newb.. all knowledge appreciated.... if i can get a step by step.. i'd love it.. thanks
If you already have an FLV file in your possession, Save it to your DW Local Site folder. I like to put my videos into a Media folder, but that's not mandatory.
- In DW, hit Insert Menu > Media > Flash Video > Progressive Video Download.
- Browse to the Flash Video file -- in your local site folder.
- Choose a player skin.
- Hit OK.
- Upload page and all dependant files to your remote server. Be sure to include your Scripts folder, FLV and SWF files.
If your native video is in some file type other than FLV, you must convert it first.
RIVA Flash Encoder for Windows is free.
