Converting Windows Media (wmv) video to Flash video for website (with progressive download)
Posted on 2007-03-29
I have about 10 videos from Windows Media (WMV) format that I need to convert to Flash for our website, which is being made with Dreamweaver. I am especially interested in Flash because it is very universal and because fo the progressive download feature. I am now looking for a very easy way to convert these files to Flash format for the site. I have been told to use Flash 8, but I am not sure how to go about importing/exporting the file properly. The video is of small size and for the web (in the present format), but when I insert it and then export as Flash, it becomes VERY big. I have also looked at Sorenson Squeeze, but don't want to pay that much. (upwards of $250) If anyone knows of a cheap (under $50) conversion utility, or even a FREE utility, that would be awesome! Any help is greatly appreciated in a timely manner, as we are looking to get these videos updated very soon. Points will be awarded promptly.
