Encoder Options for FLV Files

This file format is mostly used by the Internet-related applications which stream the video content.

Video Compressor

FLV files are saved using H264 or FLV1 compression.

H264 compressor


The image reproduction quality level. Best gives an output video with the maximum quality of reproduction resulting in the biggest file size. Least gives minimum quality of reproduction with the smallest file size. This is only available for the internal encoder.

Average Bit Rate

Enable this option to indicate the long-term desired average data rate (in kilobits per second). A higher value results in better image quality but bigger file size. Note that this is not a hard limit: the resulting data rate could be lower or higher depending on the video size and actual contents. If this option is disabled then the encoder does not set a limit, and the Quality setting, if enabled, should determine the file size.

Audio Bitrate

You can specify a variety of bitrates the sound will be encoded at. The higher the value the better the quality of sound.
