With the annoucement of support for h.264 and AAC in the flash player i feel a bit challenged to add support for this in RichFLV too.
I don`t know if it`s even possible to get acceptable results but that`s what i thought with flv first too. As a start i wrote a little program with
AIR that analyses MP4 files and traces out all the atoms it finds with path, position, size and container info.
You can download it here.
I`m still learning about the mp4 format. If anyone has good ressources, especially how to extract video frames…
The best ressource i found till now is the quicktime description from apple.
Man these are exiting times. H 264 support in flash player – what else could you ask for. Well i can think of a lot of things but i`m afraid the moment i write it down there is another labs release 😉
