I am trying to embed an f4v file into Flash CS5, however the program won't accept the file. I've tried renaming the extension and removing the audio stream. The only thing that seems to work is if its a TRUE flv file using VP6 and with a .flv extension.
The documentation here regarding embedding flv/f4v mentions the ability to embed either file formats: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Flash/10.0_UsingFlash/WSBDABD69F-D146-4e5c-9340-BF717A10426C.h tml
I have found no positive results on google and there doesn't seem to be a Flash Jira for bug tracking.
I am trying to take advantage of Flash Player 10.1's ability to decode the h.264 format - but with embedded video.
Has anyone done this successfully? Is the documentation incorrect?
You can not embed f4v files. I do not see where it says that you can. You may import the f4v in a variety of ways as the article suggests, but you may not embed.
Upon closer look, you're right!
The entire article uses "flv/f4v" except for the embedding section...
