server side transcoding of mpegs, qt - Macromedia Flash Flashcom

does FMS allow you to do server side transcoding of mpeg or qt to .flv? Is the Flix Engine the most common way to do this? I'll be using it on a linux box....

    FMS doesn't do file conversions. You'll need to use a third party program, and
    you're on the right track with Flix Engine... sort of. I evaluated Flix Engine
    late last year, and I can't say I was happy with the performance. It did
    alright with most .mov files, but it had inconsisitent results with avi's and
    failed to convert most mpeg files, even with the proper codecs on the machine.
    I was evaluating on a Windows server, so I don't know if Linux performance is
    better.

    You might want to have a look at ffmpeg ([url]http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net[/url]) before
    you make the decision to go with a proprietary solution.

    Regardless of what program you employ to handle the conversion, you're going
    to need an application server (php, asp, cf, etc) on the server to facilitate
    the file upload (if an upload is required) and the call to the conversion
    program.
