Videopp is a new site in the line of business that megavideo used to be. While Megavideo has been wrapped up by the FBI in US, new sites like videopp are coming up to take advantage of this situation. As a flash developer i am curious to learn how these sites work. So i have been at cracking some loopholes that i will like to share here.

- Actionscript 3.0, Commercial, General
- Actionscript 3.0, Flash, Flash Player 10.1, Flash Player 11, Flex 4, OSMF, Streaming, Video
Oh! well believe it or not its on the verge of that. After a much appreciated effort from Steve jobs to prove that their devices couldn’t play flash because flash was buggy, the truth has come out rather remarkably… i devices cannot play flash …not today not tomorrow not ever…
What this means:
Remember HTML5 is suppose to be a standard. In the quick near future if HTML5 cannot seriously mature to its expected level.. even 2020 is too quick to bet on that technology. All investments made on HTML5 are going to be wasted if you cannot (more…)
Avanti GUI + FFMPEG make a perfect open source alternate to Adobe Media Encoder. The Avanti GUI also needs “Avisynth” optionally for some extra features. but basically if you intend to own a desktop tool for your video/audio needs, such as conversions, audio extraction, video extraction etc etc: then this is the thing for you. Avanti with FFMPEG renders Adobe Media Encoder completely unnecessary.
Avanti can be downloaded from: http://avanti.arrozcru.com/
Avanti comes with some rather intriguing tools for bit-rate calculations, fixed file size conversions, size estimations, frame crop editor and much more. As instructed on their site you need to download ffmpeg executable separately from specified links according to your operating system platform. Just drop it into the ffmpeg folder and you are good to go.
