How do you Convert .WMV to Flash .SWF with Dreamweaver?
I want to add a video to my website and need a little help. By no means am I an expert but I've messed around with programs enought to get a few pages up on the internet.
I currently have Dreamweaver MX 2004 on my computer and know the VERY basics as far as adding/changing text and pictures and adding links/emails, etc.
The program comes with Flash 7.0 so I'm hoping that's what I need.
Currently the video I have is in Windows Media format and is approx. 200MB in size (Ya, big file) but I want to change it to SWF format and add it to one of my webpages.
How do I do this? Having the video streaming, is there a way to have it Pre-load part of the file before it starts to play?
Keep in mind I haven't used the Flash 7.0 program yet so try to give me as much detail as you can.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
I use Sorenson Squeeze to convert it first.

I know you can import an .avi video & during the process, save it as a m.clip - w/ frames added as necessary. What's nice is that you can add a preloader on the main stage/1st frame of a flash movie that contains the embedded video/m.clip - then in another flash movie, have a button and empty movie clip to load the other .swf into.
That way, the video has its own preloader, no matter which .swf movie you use to loadMovie("videofilename.swf"); it into.

Yeah .flv is the way to go. In Flash Mx 2004 there are components that make it easy to add a preloader to your .flv movie.
Will this work in Flash MX as well?

Send you files to support@*******.com to have a check.
I think Flash Video MX is the most powerful tool that can convert video to flash
