Reply To: How to setup video streaming to iTunes etc


Out of the box, only mp4 files are supported by firefly. Officially, video is not supported in firefly at all.
However, (kind of a coincidence), last week I tried to get video to work. Although my target was a bit different: I wanted to stream to the browser.
Not sure whether this might help you, but I’ll explain anyway. 🙂

The flash player in the browser only supports .flv and .mp4 files. Therefore, other video types wil be transcoded to .flv on-the-fly on request.
This article explains on what transcoding is, how it works, and how to do it yourself.

If you’re interested in my transcoding script, let me know.
