Using Flash Player with H.264 Files

Using Flash Player with H.264 Files:

Since late last year when Adobe announced the next version of Flash player would support H.264 video playback, people have been excited at the possibilities. Finally, it looks like video on the web is becoming standardized to the point that you don’t need to worry about the end user being able to play your video or not. While the last few versions of flash video have made great strides in image quality and file size, it still does not compare to H.264.

But while the quality of H.264 has been great, the chances of your clients being able to play it back on-line has been hit or miss for many. That has all changed with the marriage of Flash player and H.264.

But now that Flash Player 9 (Update 3) is out in the wild, the big question is how exactly does it work? David Hassoun of RealEyes Media has written a great in depth article on all of the nitty gritty details. He really gets into the meat of it and provides not only downloadable sample files, but several useful links along the way.
