  • Welcome to the presentation on “How To Make Flash Videos Load Faster In eLearning?”
  • Adobe Flash is a widely used tool for delivering high-impact and rich e-learning content. Courses can be highly customized with designs, animations and user interfaces.
  • Before looking into the tips for publishing videos that play smoothly and seamlessly, let’s first look at the three modes of delivering videos using Adobe Flash.
  • Videos embedded in Flash are delivered as Shockwave Flash (.swf) files, which play directly on Flash Player.
  • The second output method is External video, that is, the output is in the dot flv file format. This file when linked with the built-in-components has features like play, pause, stop and other video operations.
  • Flash Media Server (FMS), a streaming server, is another method in which videos can be delivered using Flash. This format is useful in delivering both live and on-demand videos with buffering support, interactive options, and built-in security features.
  • Based on our understanding of the three ways to deliver videos using Adobe Flash, here are a few tips, from which you can benefit in publishing the videos online smoothly and seamlessly.
  • To deliver videos for standard resolution which is 1024 x 768, the recommended dimension is a width of 640 pixels and height of 360 pixels. 
  • The video should be converted into the dot flv format before integrating with the flash streaming component. 
  • The ideal size for the single video should be below 20 MB. If a video is longer, we can split it into smaller parts and load them individually. As a result videos play without any interruptions even at lower bandwidth areas. 
  • The video file should be compressed at a high rate via video and audio codecs. 
  • To reduce the file size further we should slightly reduce quality of video for online viewing. If required download link to the higher quality video can be provided as an additional option.
  • Adobe Flash is a highly customizable tool but one needs to keep in mind the output format that is desired so that online videos play smoothly and seamlessly.
  • Lack of information and employee awareness is a major threat to Information Security. Well-thought out training program is the key to ensure that your organization’s data is protected and secured at all times.
