The next format you should convert your video into is MP4 (H.264 video) so that it can be played on Safari 3 and 4 and the iPhone and Android. Plus, H.264 videos can be easily converted to FLV files for watching on Flash.
This format is more readily available in commercial products, and you probably already have a program that will convert to MP4 if you have a video editor. If you have Adobe Premiere you can use the Adobe Video Encoder, or if you have QuickTime Pro that will work as well. Many of the converters we discussed in the previous page will aslo convert videos to MP4.
- Media-Convert - an online tool
- Miro Video Converter (Windows Macintosh) - This program has the benefit of converting to both Ogg and MP4 (H.264) and it's open source.
- SUPER (Windows) - will convert many different file types to MP4 and FLV
- Koyote Video Converter (Windows)
- Free Video Converter I think this has both a Windows and a Macintosh version, but it was hard to tell from their site
Save your MP4 file to your website and then you'll need to convert it to Flash for Internet Explorer to use.
