FLV to MOV(QuickTime movie)
This tutorial is to show you a step-by-step demonstration of converting videos downloaded from YouTube and Google Video, etc, to MOV for playing on QuickTime Player. First of all, we have to make it clear that the YouTube videos and Google videos communicating online are of the Flash Video file, or FLV file format

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, Reuters.com, Yahoo! Video and MySpace.

What is MOV?

Quicktime is a multimedia development, storage, and playback technology from Apple. Quicktime files combine sound, text, animation, and video in a single file. Using a Quicktime player that either comes with a Web browser or can be downloaded from Apple or the browser company, you can view and control brief multimedia sequences.

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

A lot of digital cameras record video in QuickTime support.

More information can be found on Apple's QuickTime page.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
