FLV, also known as Flash video, is a popular format used to deliver video over the Internet using Flash Player. FLV usually refers to SD video (Standard Definition video), which is compressed by H.263 or MPEG video codec. You can enjoy Flash video via widely available Adobe Flash Player and web browser plug-ins, or one of the several third-party programs, such as MPlayer, QuickTime and VLC media player.

SD video is usually encoded by standard H.263 or MPEG video codec, etc, while the HD video is better video compression solution which adopts H.264 video codec.

2. Advantages of HD FLV
The HD FLV in H.264 has better video quality and wider usages than FLV. It delivers excellent video quality across the entire bandwidth spectrum – from 3G to HD and everything in between (from 40 Kbps to upwards of 10 Mbps).

Starting Your Business on Linux In 2009 – Building Your Own Video Sharing Site

Due to the well-known financial crisis, the authorities and business leaders are pessimistic for the economy of 2009. However, the topic of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) and Linux brings them comforts and delights.

Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, sees Linux and the FOSS ecosystem surrounding it as having insurmountable advantages in any market over its main competitor Windows — advantages that an economic downturn only intensifies. At a time when a search for the lowest possible price point is happening in such areas as notebooks, FOSS is available at no cost. It is easy to rebrand and customize in a way that Windows Isn’t, and is also technically more efficient. “Lower cost, faster time to market, higher profit margins, better branding — these are all things that are in favor of Linux and not in favor of Windows”, he summarizes.

From the above point of view, we can see the encouraging outlook of Linux in the year 2009. For you, maybe it is a new business opportunity. Please consider about starting your business on Linux from building a video sharing site just like YouTube.

Here I introduce you a professional but low-cost tool – Video Encoder Engine for Adobe Flash (Linux Version), which provides a complete and creative video hosting solution for video uploading and sharing. This video encoder for Linux can convert almost all popular formats of video to FLV format. You can do advanced video editing, batch conversion, quality control and other tasks with CGI or any other server-side scripting languages.
