I understand that. What do I do with Adobe Animate that still needs an FLV?

Damn it, this is absolutely ridiculous!

I just opened some old Animate (former Flash) projects, and needed to reimport the video files. Not only I realised this is only possible with FLV format, but Animate actually suggested to use Media Encoder to convert the videos into FLV. Surprize surprize, I was about to cry laughing, when ME opened, I found that there is no FLV option anywhere!

What a total bunch of incompetent crap!

That is by far the DUMBEST thing ever. I haven't had to use Flash or ANIMATE in a long time but i have to work on some old files & put them back in .swf format and the only way to do that is import them into FLASH.

Who's stupid ass at Adobe seriously dropped the ball on this one. You can only import & embed in FLV but you guys don't have ANY encoders?   what the heck did I spend ALL this money for since freakin Photoshop 2 was around.. just to keep running into issues like these. I don't understand how Adobe has made it this long in the business with dumb problems like these.

Totally agree.  How can a company cerate a file format which becomes the de facto standard for several years, then just pull support for it altogether. Irresponsible!  The very least they could do would be to offer a stand alone FLV converter, but frankly, there is no good reason FLV import should be pulled from Media Encoder. If there is, I'd say Adobe's user base deserves a technical explanation.

Dear Adobe,

Now we need to pay for another media-encoderprogram of another company to solve this problem.

Can you add a FLV convertor in the next update of Media Encoder CC?


Best regards,

Karel

Handbrake, free open source, seems to do the FLV to (pick your codec) conversion easily enough. But yes, it's a pain.

But, indesign (2019) has this message when using the place image or video command and placing an mpeg.

That's a frustrating bit of circular non-helpfulness.

I can't believe this. I too, am trying to import some video footage in Animate so I can draw a quick storyboard. One used to be able to just pop some video in and work with it. Now it says I can only use FLV. But - hey! - I can't convert to FLV, even having this whole overrated Creative Cloud monster.

This is sick (oh, no, it's simply Adobe).

I need to encode a FLV video with alpha. AME CS4/CS5 is impossible to install or download. Great decision, Adobe. Don't know what to do.
