What is FLV

Flash Video is a container file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player version 6 and newer. The audio & video data within Flash video files are encoded in the same manner as they are within SWF files. There are two different video file formats known as Flash video – FLV & F4V, both formats are supported in Adobe Flash Player and developed by Adobe Systems. Most of popular web hosting web sites such as YouTube, Hulu, VEVO, Yahoo! Video, Metacafe and many news providers use this format.

What is SWF

SWF, short for "small web format", is a popular Flash media file format. Originally created as a file extension for Flash-based graphics and simple sequential animations, it is now used for Flash animation based on vector & raster graphics, for different forms of interaction with the end user – Flash menus, buttons, banners. It can contain Flash applets to control other elements, and be used for programs, commonly browser games using ActionScript. The format originated with FutureWave Software, then transferred to Macromedia and is now under the control of Adobe.
