Question Need help with flash videos

I am wondering if someone can help me to learn about flash videos. Is there a program I can get that will help me use them for personal projects like video montages.. I probably need to update my pc, and I will eventurally, but right now, I'd like to know more about them.. I have windows xp service pack 3 with explorer 8. I have nero 7 ultra and I use realplayer sp. Would a newer version of nero help? Any advice would be appreciated. Realplayer download manager downloads them for me , but won't allow me to use them for videos. If I can wait just a little while before replacing my whole pc, that is what I would like to do, but in the mean time, can someone help me out here. Much thanks!!

Default Need help with flash videos

I'm not an expert by a long, long way...

However, I'll tell what I know....

"Flash Movies" (extensions; .flv .swf & .exe files) are not like other movie format
files.

They are viewed uniquely through the Macromedia Flash Player (now owned by Adobe)
which is usually a browser add-on but can be a stand-alone "projector" that is a
[.exe] program that is capable of playing them.

This "projector" is capable of cloning and appending itself to another flash file to
create a new [.exe] "projector".

The form of the media is also unique, as it supports script functions - like being
able to point and click at special pre-defined areas within flash movies, as links to
applications, websites (URLs) and other scripted functions.

Flash "movies" can also be entire games, due to the "programmable" nature of it's
scripting language.

Flash "movies" can be very different in their appearance and use, from advertisements
with links that animate only a few frames, to a complete two-hour movie.

Some more information can be had by going to :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Flash

Flash videos are very similar to H263, and the audio stream is in fact mp3,
at a diabolically-low bitrate.

http://free-codecs.com has a number of utilities to manipulate them.

AVIDemux for example.

Not necessarily mp3 encoding - flash video also supports the "Nellymoser Asao",
"Speex" and AAC compression plus the uncompressed ADPCM formats.

First I would like to thank each of you for your replies. Since I posted that question, I have bought a new pc. I got a Hp. I have used my old one to learn on, and tried to get something newer. it is AMD AthlonII 640 Quad core procssor =64 bit w/4GB DDR3 system memory=1Terrabyte HDrive, Super multi DVD burner w/lightscribe==ATI Radion HD 4200 integrated graphics, wireless LAN802.11. It has windows home premium 64 bit and the full programs of HP Media Smart Software Suite, and Cyberlink DVD Suite 9
Ultra 64, plus much more!! Now I know I may never know exactly how to do
what you guys do, but I do understand flash is the way things work now,
(for the old pc I just got a converter, but not a single person here told me
it could be that simple for a new user. BUT I sincerely thank each and everyone of you for helping me everytime I needed it. Not all of us are
able to understand your answers because of the different levels of our
what I call (noodle head). Learning by trial and error can be stupid and costly
but its the only choice I had till finding this site. I am ever so grateful, and with the new pc I may have to bother you from time to time if it is oK.
Thanks, ebray
