You can export your Encore project either for local use (all files present locally) or to a webserver (video files present on streaming server).
In both cases, you specify the folder in which the output is stored. Encore creates the following files and a folder that contains the generated output:
The SWF file enables the browsers or Flash players to play the video content that you upload to a server. The flashdvd.swf file does not contain the actual video—it is, instead, a front end for the generated video output. The flashdvd.swf file reads the AuthoredContent.xml file and plays the Flash output accordingly and remains static even when your video has changed.
This XML file contains the information about the video output files such as filenames, association of videos with menus, and navigation. You update this XML file when your video files or the menu structure change. If you choose to upload your Flash output to a server, the URLs of the videos are updated in this file.
The HTML file that hosts the flashdvd.swf file. This file gathers the required information about the first play setting and menu structure from the AuthoredContent.xml file.
This folder contains the Flash videos and the menu images and icons. The Flash video files are either FLV or F4V format, based on your choice.
If you are publishing the video directly to the web server, Encore updates the AuthoredContent.xml file with the URLs for the assets received from the server. In this process, all video files (FLV and F4V) are uploaded to the server.
If you do not have access to a server, choose the Keep With Flash SWF option in Encore’s Build panel. The FlashDVD content is saved in the specified destination folder. Because your video now resides in the local or a shared network folder, the AuthoredContent.xml file contains the relative path to the Sources folder.
Typically, you host the video files on a Streaming server and host the other output files (Sources,AuthoredContent.xml,Theme.xml, index.html) on a web server.
You can choose one from the fifteen export quality presets that provide you five frame sizes, each with three quality presets: Low, Medium, and High quality. Of the five frame sizes, two are standard size and the remaining are widescreen formats. In Addition to system presets, now you can create custom presets of different frame sizes with different quality settings from Edit Quality Presets from Build panel.
