What is MJPEG?

M-JPEG stands for Motion JPEG. It is a video format that uses JPEG picture compression in each frame of the video. Frames of the video don't interact with each other in any way (like they do in MPEG-1, MPEG-2, etc.) which results in much bigger file size, but in other hand, it makes the video editing easier because each of the frames has all of the information they need stored in them.

What is flash?

Flash (previously called Shockwave Flash and Macromedia Flash) is a set of multimedia software created by Macromedia and currently developed and distributed by Adobe Systems. Files in the SWF format, traditionally called "Shockwave Flash" movies, "Flash movies" or "Flash games", usually have a .swf file extension and may be an object of a web page, strictly "played" in a standalone Flash Player, or incorporated into a Projector, a self-executing Flash movie (with the .exe extension in Microsoft Windows). Flash Video (FLV) files have a .flv file extension and are used from within.swf files.

What is FLV?

Flash Video is the name of a file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player (formerly known as Macromedia Flash Player) versions 6–10. Until version 9 update 2 of the Flash Player, Flash Video referred to a proprietary file format, having the extension FLV. The most recent public release of Flash Player supports H.264 video and HE-AAC audio. Flash Video content may also be embedded within SWF files. Notable users of the Flash Video format include YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, and many other news providers.
