Adobe's Video Technology Center

A section dedicated to videos on the web that is intended for webmasters.

Web designers and developers once faced several hurdles getting video onto the web: data-intensive video files that downloaded slowly over low-bandwidth connections, and users having to install special players to view video in pop-up windows. Most people now access the web using high-bandwidth connections, and web designers and developers are standardizing on the Flash video (FLV) format. Video plays directly in the page through Adobe Flash Player, without requiring additional plug-ins.

Whether you're planning your video shoot, encoding video, or delivering it to your audience, start out with the Flash Video Learning Guide. Then check out the samples and tutorials in the Video Topics areas.
