FLV Information Dialog (CTRL+I)
View|FLV Information
 
General Information Tab
 

 
File name
Shows the name of the current FLV file.
 
Video dimensions
Shows width and height of the FLV in pixels (The first video tag is used to determine the dimensions).
 
Video codec
Shows the video codec. Known video codecs are Sorenson H.263, Screen video, On2 VP6 and On2 VP6 with Transparency. (The first video tag is used to determine the codec).
 
Audio codec
Shows audio codec, sound rate, sound size and sound type. Known audio codecs are Uncompressed, ADPCM, MP3 and Nellymoser. (The first audio tag with non-zero data size is used to determine the codec).
 
Video frame rate
Shows the video frame per second value. This is calculated by dividing duration by video frame count.
 
Duration
Shows the duration of the FLV. This is the timestamp of the last tag, plus the duration of the last audio tag taken into account.
 
File Properties
Displays system 'File Properties' dialog.
 
Metadata Tab
 

 
Do not include 'event cue points' in metadata.
If this option is selected, cue points that are of type 'event' will not be included in the onMetaData event data when Captionate saves the FLV file.
 
Normally a copy of all cue points is included in the onMetaData event. When you are using cue points for captions/subtitles, this may make onMetaData size quite big and may even cause a delay when the video is starting.
 
(Note that this option still places 'navigation' type cue points in onMetaData event. Any component that needs to seek a cue point before the cue point is actually received will need to make use of the cue points array in the onMetaData event).
 
Include 'keyframes' object in metadata.
If this option is selected, Captionate includes the 'keyframes' object in the onMetaData event when saving the FLV file.
 
'keyframes' object consists of 'filepositions' and 'times' arrays (also see onMetaData event). By using the information in the 'keyframes' object and a simple server side script, it's possible to seek progressive download (as opposed to streaming) FLV files (see http://www.asvguy.com/2005/11/streaming_flash.html).
 
Include 'custommetadata' object in metadata
Captionate can add custom name:value string pairs to the onMetaData event in 'custommetadata' object.
 
When this option is selected, 'custommetadata' object with the name:value pairs specified in Custom Metadata section will be included in the onMetaData event when the FLV is saved.
 
Custom Metadata section
Click Add to add a new name:value pair, click Delete to delete selected name:value pair, click Delete All to delete all pairs. You can edit the string data in-place. Either press F2, or click on text to enter the edit mode.
 
View MetaData
Displays the data Captionate will save for the onMetaData event.
 
Note that only up to 1000 characters for each field will be shown.
