Import a video into Flash CS5 for Flash 6 Playback?
Posted on 2012-08-12
Hey Flash Gurus!
I need to import a video file into my flash project. I'm using Flash CS5. I have both .mov and .flv file formats (if it matters) for my video. I need to publish my final SWF file for Flash 6 !!! Whenever I import a video into Flash it creates an error when I try to compile it for Flash 6. It tells me that it will only be compatible for Flash 8.
"WARNING: This movie uses features that are not supported in the Flash 6 player
Symbol=video-name.flv, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:VP6 Codec requires Flash Player 8 or higher"
Does anyone out there, know any way around this? I have Adobe Media Encoder, so I could possibly convert my .mov file in some magical way, if I knew how, or which other Codec to use.
I have Flash CS4 on a second machine, which has allowed me to import videos compatible with Flash 6 in the past, but when I try to save the FLA file in question as CS4 and open it on my other machine, I get a "Unexpected File Format" error.
Any help would be SO appreciated!!! :)
