FLV codec

Flash Video, or FLV, is a container file format used to deliver video via the Adobe Flash player.  Deployed by leading video sites such as YouTube, Yahoo! Video, and many others, Flash Video is an open format which supports H.264, VP6 and Sorenson Spark formats.

If you're interested in using Encoding.com's platform to create FLV files from your source content, there's a number of ways to achieve that using the options listed below.

+ Use our web UI, located @ http://www.encoding.com/login, to designate an Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles or FTP site to use as your watchfolder. Turn an entire folder of content into FLV files. All you have to do is select 'Add Task' and apply a FLV preset from the dropdown menu in the watchfolder UI. 

+ Upload a single piece of media with our 'Add Media' feature in the web UI. Select 'Add Task' and apply an FLV preset to your encoding workflow from the dropdown menu.  As with watchfolders, 'Add Media' can source from Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles, FTP sites or your local drive / network.

+ Implement our powerful API to submit source content and create FLVs in a snap. Complete API documentation here

Don't forget to take a peek at our sample XML template for FLV creation.
