Any flash experts?
Well as you can imagine I am a happy man today after yesterdays result. A lot of people guessed at 4 – 0 defeats and I was one of those. I am glad to be wrong.
We only had two winners who correctly predicted the score, so congratulations to:
Paulo Oliveira (Portugal)
Darrell Jordan (USA)
Both will be receiving a WebCam in the very near future.
One of the categories for the API contest is for the best voice service application. Since many of you will have never built a voice application before and will have no idea where to begin, we have put together this handy guide on how you get started.

Any experts out there know anything about publishing flash movies?
Here is my problem. I create my video tutorials in WMV format. 10 minutes at reasonable quality produces a file of around 10mb – 16mb in size.
If I take the same video, same screen size and same quality and convert it to Flash, I end up with a file that is 190mb. I can’t believe that WMV compression 200 times better
It doesn’t get any better if I try MOV or QuickTime, I end up with huge files.
The only way I can make the file size smaller is to change the video display size, but only when I go down to the size of a postage stamp do I end up with a reasonable file size.
Any experts got any ideas?
