I want to go from a DVD movie ( VOB files - no commercial movies, rather movies which are either self-made, or which we have the rights to) to a "progressive download'" flash file... I found a good article about it, but I don't think I'm allowed to post that link here...
I imagine it should go something like this:
1. VOB file via transcode (K3B or something else) to mpeg file
2. mpeg file via ffmpeg to flv file (
ffmpeg -i infile.[avi¦mpeg] stream.flv )
3. creating the flash / embedding it in a webpage
It is this last step '3' that has me confused... in the article there is a step "Building a Simple Multimedia Player"... I wonder if this is really necessary, or could I just embed it as a 'normal' Flash object instead?
But then, where does the swf file come from (seems like you need both an .flv file and a .swf file)? It seems like it is being generated in the code... my problem is that I do not have the Flash Editor to create this actionscript...
also I am not really familiar with flash or Actionscript. My main concern is to get my video in a suitable format for progressive download (preferrably flash), without having to use a streaming server.

Thanks; I'm already starting to see some light in the darkness... however right now I have a problem that I have all the files, but the .flv file will not play, except if I use a full address like [test.xyz...] I suspect that the link to it is wrong somehow.
