    Movie format

    I built a web site for mobile and I have a .flv file which I do not know whether it works or not.

    The url I tested is
    (The video is a .flv format)

    (Click VIDEO 1)

    I tested it in : http://iphone5simulator.com/
    and it seems working fine.

    The I tested it in
    and it does not work.

    Will you pls. indicate me what is/are the format(s) I have to convert the .flv to have that video visible in most mobile devices?
    I validated all my files to W3C and I have not seen any advice about this subject.Please suggest others testers on line if possible.

    FLASH editing format is .FLV Then you FILE>Publish that working file as a .SWF movie , which compresses and compiles the file for viewing in FLASH Player.

    Are you working with Action Script 3.0 or AS 2.0. they are not compatible with each other. The AS version will determine how you publish the .SWF movie

    Movie format

    Hello. I do not understand your reply.
    I'm not experienced in mobile sites and my doubt is if I have to convert the .flv file in other formats so mobile devices can edit it.
    The original file was a .avi file and I converted it in .flv. Never used Flash and Actionscript for it.
    Are mobile devices provided of a flash players? Are on-line testers

    The html file shows this code:

    <div class="player">

    <object id="Object1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="player_flv_maxi.swf" width="320" height="270">

    <param name="movie" value="player_flv_maxi.swf" />
    <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />

    <param name="autoplay" value="false" />
    <param name="autoload" value="false" />
    <param name="FlashVars" value="configxml=1_irruzione_magazzino.xml" />

    The .xml file shows the following:

    Movie format

    Hello. I do not understand your reply.
    My doubt is if mobile devices are usually able to visualize .flv file.
    I converted an .avi file to .flv and I did not use Flash and Actionscript. As I stated in the prior post some testers on-line
    shows the movie and some not.
    If needed I can post the code of the .html and .xml files
    that recall the movie.
    Thank you for your help.

    So sorry. I was so WRONG. In a rush, did not think straight. FLASH editing format is .FLA. The video format is .FLV.

    But with FLASH generally in disfavor, why did you convert standard .AVI format to FLASH .FLV format? I would think most browsers support HTML 5 new video element.

    This seems to be about simulators, beyond my scope.

    I think all mobile devices support the MPEG-4 movie format. Should work on most that way.
