There is a guide about how to creat Flash Video with high quality online.Hope this article can help you sometime.

[B]Flash Video Encoder [/B]

[B]Flash Video [/B]is a type of video that can be played by Flash Player. A Flash Video file can be a separated FLV file or a video stream in a SWF file. It has various video encoding methods. Flash Player 6 only supports Sorenson Spark encoding method; Flash Player 7 supports one more encoding method, Screen Video that can compress files without losing the original quality. Apart from the two above-mentioned encoding methods, Flash Player 8 supports On2 VP6, which is currently the best encoder available. Its video quality is superior to MPEG4, H264, and DIVX. As Flash Video becoming more and more popular, it will be the major built-in web video file in the near future.
In addition to the Flash Video encoder from the Macromedia company, there are different other Flash Video encoders such as SwishVideo, Flash Video MX, and On2 Flix. Now I am going to compare these different Flash Video encoders in various different aspects:

[B]II. User Preference ****ysis[/B]
1. If you are a beginner of Flash files and you want to convert your video files to SWF files to play them on the Internet, Flash Video MX will be a good choice. It has a very easy interface and allows you to preview the main settings you have done. Macromedia Flash Video Encoder cannot create SWF files. SwishVideo and On2 Flix are both complicated for beginners.

2. If you only want to convert a video file to a SWF file, SwishVideo, Flash Video MX and On2 Flix are all fine. However, if you want good quality and small file size, Flash Video MX will be the best choice.
3. If you want to convert multiple video files to SWF files all at a time, Flash Video MX is also the best choice. Because Macromedia Flash Video Encoder does not support video file to SWF file conversion, and SwishVideo and On2 Flix have too simple batch processing functions and sometimes those functions do not work very well.

4. If you want to convert your video files to FLV files and you prefer On2 VP6 conversion, Macromedia Flash Video Encoder, Flash Video MX, and On2 Flix all work well for you.

5. If you are a professional Flash designer and you need to add Cue Point to your Flash files, you should choose Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder. It was released together with Flash 8 Professional by the Macromedia company. If you have already bought Flash 8 Professional, you should have got Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder along with it. On2Flix not supports Cue Point.
