My site is a simple video/photo gallery displaying my portfolio online as a reel, I am a videographer/photographer. I am learning more and more about using Flash video for the web but still after all my research have lingering questions. My understanding is, to use flash video on a website you need to upload onto your site the video file and a player. I've been hearing a lot about H.264 which I want to use but some places I hear it isn't compatible (i.e. with Adobe Flash 8). But shouldn't it work anyhow since you're providing the player? I would like to use H.264 since it offers the best compression for what I do but am finding conflicting information on ease of use incorporation with your site. After many frustrating weeks I've decided on using iWeb but using tutorials on iWebUnlimited to "pimp" it out with Shadowbox and iFrames and such. At first I was using QuickTime but want more compatibility. The quicktime feature "export for web" seemed interesting in that by using a reference file as your video it detects connection speed and provides the most appropriately sized video file for that connection. Have people found this useful? I ask because it this is a very good feature I would like to use it similarly with Flash videos but don't know how. Lucidmedia, a contributing member to this forum, told me this would take a Flash server but I think he meant that for a big site expecting lots of visitors. This wouldn't be my case. If anyone has a good reference for using Flash in these ways I would greatly appreciate you directing me there. The idea of using Flash I'm sure is much less complicated than it seems to me, it's just I haven't seen the proper workflow for what I'm trying to do. Thank you.
