How To Use Adobe FLASH CS3 Video Encoder

Adobe Flash CS3 Video Encoder is a stand-alone video encoding application that lets you encode video in Adobe Flash video (FLV) format. The FLV format lets you easily incorporate video into a web page or Flash document in a format that can be viewed using Adobe Flash Player. Flash Video Encoder lets you encode video files in either the On2 VP6 or Sorenson Spark video codecs. A codec is an algorithm that controls how video files are compressed during import and decompressed during playback. You can use Flash Video Encoder on a computer that does not have Adobe Flash CS3 Professional or other Adobe Creative Suite 3 software installed. Here let’s see how to encode video with Flash CS3 video encoder.

  • Start Flash Video Encoder by selecting Start > All Programs > Adobe Flash Video Encoder (Windows), or open the folder that contains the Adobe Flash Video Encoder application, and double click the application icon (Macintosh).
  • In the Flash Video Encoder, add source video clips to the list of files to encode by clicking Add (File > Add) and selecting one or more files on your computer.
  • Click Settings (Edit > Encoding Settings) to display the Flash Video Encoding Settings dialog box.
  • Verify that the encoding profile you've selected is appropriate for your intended application. The text box below the Flash video encoding profile drop-down list displays the Flash Player version, video codec, video bit rate, and audio encoding information for the selected encoding profile.
  • Enter a filename for the encoded FLV file. If you don't specify a filename, Flash Video Encoder uses the filename of the source video clip.
  • Click Start Queue to begin encoding your files.
  • The FLV encoded files are saved to the same folder as the source video files with an .flv file type to identify them.

Now you are ready with video encoding in FLASH CS3.
