Personal flash video player

Posted on October 16, 2006

With this handy little util, flash video player, and ffmpeg to do the conversion it is easy to embed videos in your website, without having to use a video sharing site like youtube. This is of great importance to intranets, and protected sources. Why run the flash route? Easy, it’s the only working, embedded video player in Linux.

ffmpeg -i **infile** -t flv -ar 44100 **outfile**.flv

Just a note, you seem to have to have the whole thing on a webserver for it to work. It won’t work straight off your hard drive.
