How do I convert video to flash?


Flash is a popular format that supports video, audio, and interactive content. It is used mainly on the Web for advertising, animation, for creating nice web-page components, for small games etc. Most browsers have flash player plug-ins, which makes the format highly portable and independent of installed codecs. Another advantage of flash is the ability to be shown directly in browser.
