Flash Transcoding and Playback on Plumi with Indytube

When a user uploads video to a Plumi site in any format, the video is automatically transcoded by the server in the background to an mp4 (h264) and an ogv (theora) video file by ffmpeg.

The video takes a short time to transcode (depending on how big the file is, what format it is, and the processing power of the server) and is then displayed in the Flowplayer Flash video player on the video/view page.

The video does not load until the play button or splash image in the player is clicked. The video then buffers and plays back as it downloads onto the users computer.

The user can access play, pause and scrub controls, and has the ability to watch the video fullscreen.

The video is also available for download in it's original format.
