Okay! I went back into the Flash Video MX program and adjusted the bit rate to 460 (it was 824!!) I left the audio bitrate at whatever the program chose (128). The video codec is called "Sorenson H.263" by default (there is no other option listed) and selected "generate FLV file" and "play FLV file outside".
The end result is now about 32 megabytes (instead of 64) and it’s loading much faster now. I can see a drop in quality in the video in some areas, sometimes a scene looks a little pixelated but I notice that it happens with the clips that were not really sharp in the first place. (Actually, the whole thing was recorded using my Samsung Hi-8 Analog Camcorder.) 😀 Imagine that!
Anyway, I’m very happy with it since I feel some of the pretty scenes were preserved.
So, a question then: Should I buy Flash Video MX or On2 Technologies? Do you think one is definitely better than the other?
Thanks again for such fine assistance.
