Video and Joomla and Portable Devices Quick Introduction to Video Options and Lessons Learned Tools and Process utilized to support Evolutionary-Meditative Practice HORA www.horausa.com 1
How to Optimize Encoding
FLV (Most Popular for Web) H.264 (Apple Tools Compatible: iphone, ipad, ieverything, etc) (GNU GPL Licence) MPEG-4 ( Proprietary) Windows MPEG-2 MPEG-4
New Comers WebM (vp8) Theora
My experience: Two Codecs Needed FLV – Flash Advantages:
minimum Buffer, low file size Supported widely by all browser
Most Smart Phones including Apple/Android technology will not play FLV FLV (Adobe)
H.264 for Advantages:
Plays in many SmartPhones, GNU GPL RSS, Pod casting can be created
Bigger File, Must buffer 100% online before it will play. Can frustrate the visitor.
Conclusion: Huge Waist of Time and Demanding Solution 3
Requirement: One Codec's for Many Options
Need One Encoding to work with traditional web and portable devices.
H264 is the best candidate.
Problem: needs to buffer 100% before playing
Solution: A. Find a tool that will move H.264 index file to the front.
Why: Index file that is required to play loads last. (At the End)
One codec for two environments Free Time Less hair loss for you and your clients Less storage is used by eliminating FLV codec's
V. Find a Player that will play H.264 in a Flash Box on the traditional Internet.
