I'm fine with the mp4 format and agree the compression that Storyline does is very good. Problem is, my LMS doesn't support the .mp4 file format, can you believe it? I just confirmed with them that's the case. I need to figure out a secure web server solution or whatever.


Thanks, Darrin!

They can't just add a MIME type of MP4 to the server that the content is on?

Again, you can bring in a FLV with it being in a web object.  If you have Presenter, you could use that and then do a local web object.

If you don't know how to do a local web object, Brian Batt just did a nice Screenr on it.  Need to find the link if you need it.

Our servers had to have the mime type enabled for .mp4 as well.  

Here is a nifty knowledge base article for your IT group (if they need it) - http://www.articulate.com/support/kb_article.php?product=ap9&id=w9bvqxxido6t

It is well worth it.  While there are still plenty of FLV videos out there being used, even Adobe has adopted mp4 as the standard video format and it will take up less space on your servers, which should make your server guys happy.
