This uses a bunch of open-source code (I didn't check the legality). It's huge because it uses its own Java Runtime Environment (and people complain about .NET). It's very sloppy for a version 1.3--spelling errors, problems with default folders, shows the output folder as a link but it isn't, dumps preview JPEGs into the source folder, etc. The biggest issue for me is that it only supports the largely obsolete FLV format--no H.264, WebM, etc.
FLV Mate is an extremely easy way to convert your existing video to the Flash flv format. It uses a wizard format & when you're done you'll get your flv video in a folder with a generic player [.swf], a thumbnail image for that player, & an html page tying it all together. Alternatively you can upload all 4 files to Amazon's S3 service -- you have your choice between that & creating a folder on your hdd.
FLV Mate uses Java -- setup comes with a copy of the Java runtime in a jre folder that takes up ~88MB in 637 files, 37 folders... the 21 files making up the app itself additionally take up just short of 20MB. Conversion itself is handled by the free [very commonly used] ffmpeg -- Fubar mentioned the legality, which brings up what I think is an odd point: inside the jre folder there are all sorts of license mentions for Apache etc, but I didn't see a thing for ffmpeg... AFAIK most open source code carries a request/requires at least some sort of mention [I know ffmpeg does]. Impact on Windows is light -- it looks like FLV Mate could be made portable using the portableapps.com format, including the sole required registry key. According to the developer's site, FLV Mate is 32 bit only -- a few things there struck me as odd... most 32 bit apps run fine in 64 bit windows, most video-related software is 32 bit & works fine, & despite the majority of win7 licenses being for the 64 bit version, the developer writes he'll consider it if he gets enough requests (?). [I'd think if you're selling a product you'd want the broadest market possible?] Finally, unlike every other video converter I've seen, if acceptable input formats are listed anywhere, it's not very prominent [I certainly didn't see it] -- the site focuses mostly IMHO on using Amazon's S3 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_S3].
Putting video on-line is an extremely crowded field -- so much so it's very hard to even begin listing alternatives. Microsoft is including it in their Live apps, where the betas are designed around posting anything from video to photos to blogs to Office docs etc... Google is expanding their offerings, & prompted by their owning YouTube, is even awarding grants for HD content. DivX has been trying to make their mark on-line for years. Then there's debate about Flash itself... Apple famously prefers html5 -- so does Google & many of the major content owners working with them, but they'll be working out the kinks for some time [and in the mean time sticking with Flash]. And there are several companies who want you to use their resources to store & stream your video -- many hope that like YouTube, if they get enough traffic &/or participation they'll be able to sell more stuff &/or move to a subscription service like Hulu. Against that backdrop, using Amazon S3 to me just doesn't make much sense unless you're hosting [semi] private video... most people & companies want their video to be seen, & few things do that as well as YouTube once word gets out that it's had some fantastic number of views. Plus like so many sites you can embed your YouTube video on your site's pages, letting them bear the brunt of hosting/bandwidth charges.
That said, if hosting video on Amazon's S3 looks like a decent choice for your needs, the FLV Mate site has more info [check out the manual, blogs etc], & this may be the easiest [or among the easiest] way[s] to make it happen.
This is a Java application, it will install all needed Java Runtime files in the program installation folder. (Installer: 69.1 MB, After install: 153 MB) The FLV Mate it self only cost about 20 MB of disk space, the rest 100 over MB is used by Java Runtime files. The question is... does it really necessary to use Java Runtime for this kinda application? Maybe the author should consider to use other programming language. You can't really trim down the needed Java Runtime files for the application to run.
The price of this software it's not worth for $39.95 at all, coz it's seriously lack of features. The author should consider lower down the price.
The first commenter writes it’s “straightforward and easy to use”, But later writes ”lacks proper documentation”,huh? Well if it’s “Straightforward and easy to use” how much explicit documentation is required? Next, “The program allows any user to “publish directly” then later, “lacks the ability to publish directly”. And rambles on and on only to lure someone into leaving GOTD because the GOTD Forum isn't good enough to post a full review and recommendation (unlike Whiterabbit who selflessly does)!
That so called "review" was done hurriedly and without putting in sufficient time to be fair to this Developer. The full version of this program was released at 3:00am. The first comment was posted at 3:01am based solely on the trial version. Since working with this program for several hours I found it delivers as advertised. The comment by #1 is no more than an exercise of a race to post first and serves as an excellent example of nitpicking. It’s my Recommendation that today’s GOTD be tried out because you just might find it as I did, to be a diamond in the rough. Thanks GOTD...
