I am hoping to include some Show Me How videos in my help topics. I'm using
Screenflow to capture the video, which saves as MOV. I can convert these to
FLVs--but Flash wants SWFs. I have tried a converter, but it results in SWF
videos of poor quality. I am thinking I need to embed a video player in the
Webhelp, so users can view the FLVs. Does anyone have experience with this
they can share with a video newbie? Recommendations for video players?
