Resizing a Flash movie?
What's the best way to rescale a movie?

 10:53 pm on Jun 22, 2008 (gmt 0)

I have a Flash movie that I'd like to feature on my site. The video dimensions are 640x480, but I'd like to show it at 320x240. I know I can specify width and height in the embed/object parameter, but then the browser still downloads the whole file. which is quite hefty at 9.3MB. How would I rescale the movie so that (hopefully) the download/stream size is much smaller? I'm on a Linux box.

<added>The movie is a .flv file.</added>

Not sure you'll be able to resize it unless you can change the flash directly, which it doesn't seem like you can.

Thanks -- you're right, I wasn't able to change the Flash directly. I uploaded the video to YouTube and embedded it in my page. Not ideal, but it cut the file size to 4MB, and the movie played much more smoothly.

Nice idea! That's pretty good. Thanks for sharing :)
