How to upload a SWF file?

Has anyone tried to install a codec for uploading/encoding a Adoble Flash file (SWF). We've got a few videos in this format that we'd like to expose on PKS. Any hint is appreciated.

Hi there,

We've actually integrated PKS with a 3rd part media trans-coding product (Rhozet's Carbon Coder), and replaced Silverlight with Adobe Flash.  This allows users to upload videos in virtually any format, and then play them using Flash which is available in nearly all browsers.

Unfortunately I can't share the code for this as it is commercially sensitive, however it is entirely possible.

With just Expression Encoder, the SP1 release has support for additional formats such as H.264, however I don't know if it's been qualified for use with PKS yet.

Hope that helps a bit,

This wouls be a GREAT functionality... We use Adobe Connect for online meetings, and they are archived in flv format.  To be able to use the PKS front-end to manage archived meetings would be a great feature!

It would be huge if the encoder could switch between formats, for a transparent front-end experience.
