NAME

flv2swf - Transform an FLV file into a SWF file

SYNOPSIS

flv2swf [options] file.flv file.swf

 Options:
   -b --background=s   Specify an RRGGBB color for the background
                       Defaults to 000000, which is black
   -v --verbose        Print diagnostic messages

DESCRIPTION

With respect to video and audio content, FLV and SWF files have very similar data inside, and differ primarily in metadata. Very roughly, one can think of an FLV file as a subset of a SWF file.

Therefore, one can easily transcode from SWF to FLV and back without much work apart from fiddling with headers and the like.

CAVEATS AND LIMITATIONS

Supports Flash MX and Flash 8 video (that is, Sorenson H.263 and On2 VP6.2 respectively). Flash screen video and VP6 with alpha are both untested but might work.

Supports MP3 audio. Other audio formats are untested but might work.

Does not support multiple video or audio streams in the same file.

Emits Greenwich time in the creationdate meta tag, not local time.
