    FFMPEG is an open source project geared toward “developer types” who aren’t afraid to:
    usr$ ffmpeg -i infile.avi stream.flv
    This is a great tool for developers who need a flexible and customizble backend compression solution, but not good for newbies.

Here are some additional tools that allow FLV video created with the first Adove (Macromedia) FLV video exporter to work properly in wimpy:

FLV duration (recommended)


FLV MetaData Injector (alternate)

The FLV format has a decent quality-to-filesize ratio. The video format is relatively early in development, but is being developed by two of the best technology companies out there, Adobe and Sorenson–which means that it will only get better and more flexible in the future.
