mp4 video
« on: March 18, 2009, 07:57:12 PM »

Has anyone able to get mp4 video to work on the airplayer. I keep getting a blank screen when I add an mp4 video file into any campaign timeline.

I try different mp4 file and event browse the internet for sample of mp4 video to try with the player, but the results are them same.

There is a bug with MP4 and we are working on it ....

HOWEVER, I checked your Video and it is not encoded properly to work in Flash 10.
You need to use Super ( download from )

Simply convert from MP4 to MP4 using Super. It should work, but again, there is a bug that will fix next week ...

Here is the complete breakdown:

The VideoDisplay component plays FLV files and H.264. Your video file must
adhere to the MPEG4 specs. If you've created an MP4 file using an Adobe
product, this should work if you did not stray too far from the Adobe Media
Encoder settings, like trying to squeeze the file size down too far. Flash
player or later must be used to view H.264 video.

If in doubt, use AME to create a small MP4 clip at default settings (use
something like "web banner 320x240") and see if that plays. If it plays, start
going through all your encoding settings and see if you set something out of
spec--like maybe the audio settings. Just use straight AAC for the audio,
48kHz, 192 kbps bitrate. Video, use NTSC (fps shouldn't matter...) progressive,
square pixels, "main" profile, "level" of 3. Change the Bitrate encoding to CBR
(you are probably using VBR for high quality, but just try it).
Any of these settings may trip Flex up. You just have to experiment. If this
doesn't work, send me some more info on how you created the video file.
