Using a Quicktime player that either comes with a Web browser or downloaded from Apple or the browser company, you can view and control brief multimedia sequences.

As a multimedia standard, QuickTime is not purely linear. It could contain interactivity and causes problems when converting to other video formats.

What is FLV?
FLV, or Flash Live Video file, is a preferred file format that is designed for web playback, offering high rates of compression to deliver video over the internet using Adobe Flash Player.
FLV content cannot be played back directly but must be embedded in (or linked from) an SWF file. You create (or download) a "container" SWF file from which to play the FLV file. The most common approach is to use an SWF file that functions as a media player with screen and playback controls. Notable users of the FLV format include YouTube, Google Video, hulu, dailymotion,, Yahoo! Video and MySpace.
