watching HDV avi in windows, and Convert to flash Software?

Curious I can actually capture through windows, hdv avi files, but they only play as sound only no picture? I now use vegas to capture and create a WMV file which plays fine in 1080 but an avi does not play is there a decent viewer to watch another format in windows at 1080?

Also are there any decent flash converters around that cost less than buying flash CS3? I am downloading wondershare video to flash and geovid video to flash converter are they decent or are there better ones available?

Media Player Classic is a very nice little application that plays pretty much anything without a sweat. Comes with mpeg codecs installed (plays DVDs and high def M2T files), and if you install Real Media and QT codecs on your machine, it will be your universal player except streaming content... it is mine anyway...

Google is your friend...

If you want Flash video for the web, check out Flix Standard from On2 Technologies (who created the Flash 8 codec):

http://www.on2.com/products/flix/flix-standard/

It's $40, and generates great quality flv video. All you need is a great web based player:

then you're sorted.

Yes, it requires some twiddling with the HTML file and some poking of the standard presets, but other than investing in Episode Pro, it's the best I've come across.

I agree with Matt on the Flix from On2.
I use the FlixPro version myself.

If you want to see some examples of the quality browse over to my site at:
http://www.gaijin-eyes.com
Then look for the Gallery with the 16:9 clips.

I have also a tutorial online that explains the workflow I use - including the Flix encoding and final work in Dreamweaver to get the stuff on the web.
You can find that at
