Adding a video file to Adobe Media Encoder

The first step to convert your video file to a compatible Flash format is to add the video to Adobe Media Encoder for encoding.

  1. Launch Adobe Media Encoder, which comes installed with Adobe Flash Professional.
  2. The opening screen displays the Queue in the upper left, which shows any current video files that have been added for processing. The Queue panel should be empty. The other panels are the Encoding panel, which shows any video currently being processed; the Watch Folders, which shows folders that have been identified for batch processing; and the Preset Browser, which provides common predefined settings.

  3. Choose File > Add Source or click the Plus button in the Queue panel.
  4. A dialog box opens for you to select a video file.

  5. Navigate to the Lesson07/07Start folder, select the file, and click Open.
  6. The file is added to the Queue and is ready for conversion to your choice of a video format.
