    Hello I am compressing quicktime movies for the web and every time I encode them to FLV format I get a white frame at the end... :confused: I need to loop the FLV files, so the white frame is really annoying. My quicktime sources are Animation Compression, so there should be no problem there... Here are my settings (even though I tried different ones with the same result):

    Video:

    codec: on2 vp6
    Max data rate: 300
    Keyframe: auto
    Frame rate: same as source

    Audio: MP3 96 kps

    Resize: 360x240

    The other settings are the default ones. Please let me know if anyone had the same issue. Thanks!

    Compression of your original file

    I had this happen once when I converted quicktime files to FLV that received from a client. It turned out to be the compression that was made on the quicktime files. The files were not .mov, they were another movie format that I don't remember now. In any case, I converted the files to .mov and then into .flv and it worked fine. I think there was some data or the lack of data in the quicktime file that was passed into the flv that confused the netStream object. In flash, the flv should always land on the first frame of the video upon completion.

    Right, the problem is that my files are in quicktime format (mov) and in the generic Animation codec... I tried other sources also in quicktime and I always get the same white frame in the end... I am starting to realize it has to be a Flash bug. Every movie I encode into a FLV gets the white frame.. :(

    Are you using the Flash Video Encoder App? or are you using the flv encoding plug in?

    I still think the issue is with the compression of the original video file(s). Are you creating the videos or are they coming from somewhere else? Peep this and see if it helps: http://support.on2.com/flixdesktop/faq/

    The main topic deals with Flix but perhaps there are similarities that you can find. Specifically http://support.on2.com/flixdesktop/faq/#v0020 I know that you are only experiencing the white in the last frame, but any clues might help.

    The flash video encoder seems to only be able to handle video that is "prepped" for it. Since there are so many compression techniques, some compressions step on the feet of others.

    Quality: High
    Key frame rate: 24
    frame reordering: yes

    good catch, disregard the size, that should be arbitrary.
