MasterClass! - Adobe Media Encoder & Embedding Flash Video in Dreamweaver CS4 Tutorial

Adobe Media Encoder is an underrated power-tool in the Adobe CS4 Suite that generates highly compressed, fast-downloading high quality, web-ready video in FLV and other web compatible formats. Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 includes little-appreciated features for embedding FLV videos in web pages and generating a variety of Flash Player skins with player controls. This course covers the entire process of converting a QuickTime or Windows Media video to a web-read Flash Video (FLV) file using Adobe Media Encoder, and then embedding that video in a Flash Player skin in Dreamweaver CS4. In addition, the course covers extracting audio tracks and high quality still photos from video, and provides a basic introduction to selecting video and audio compression for the web. Finally, the course covers providing iPod and iPhone friendly video.
