Encoding from muxed MPEG-2 files to Flash .FLV or .SWF with Squeeze

If you are encoding from muxed MPEG-2 videos on the Mac. You might run into some problems with using a muxed MPEG-2 file when using Sorenson Squeeze or other compression applications. The problem is the video and audio are married together instead of having their own audio and video tracks. The result that user might get is a Flash .SWF or .FLV with video only and no audio. Here's how to fix the problem so your Flash videos will have audio after encoding.

Using MPEG Streamclip export a QuickTime movie using the Apple DV/DVCPro- NTSC codec. Make sure you adjust your Quality to 100% to get good quality.

Once your file is exported you will have a QuickTime file with separate audio and video tracks. Take your QuickTime file into Squeeze 4.3 or higher and encode. Your Flash .SWF or .FLV should now have audio.


Note: The MPEG-2 Component for QuickTime was installed on the computer I was using to perform this fix
