Flash 10 or Higher Required
In May of 2010, WRAL.com upgraded its video format to MPEG-4, H.264. Previously, we were using Flash 6 video (Sorenson codec) for our video-on-demand clips, and we were using Windows Media 9 for our live streams.
To play back the MPEG-4 video, you must have Flash 10 or newer.
You can download the latest flash player from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.
We made this decision based on a number of factors:
- we could get better looking video for the same bit rates
- we could make our video player more accessible by removing the need for Windows Media for live streams
- less than 1% of our users have lower versions of Flash installed
