What are the names of the two codecs optimized for screencasts supported by the Flash Player?

The Wikipedia article about the FLV Flash video format just says "The FLV file format supports two versions of a so called 'screenshare' codec which is an encoding format designed for screencasts. Both these formats are bitmap tile based, can be lossy by reducing color depths and are compressed using zlib. The second version is only playable in Flash Player 8 and newer."
