Squeeze, Flash, Fraunhofer and frustration

    I have a ton of files I need to convert *tonight* from their source
    (various: mpg, avi, some wmv). I'm creating for each of my file
    collections a FLV file to be used with a player I have in hand.

    However, when I use Sorenson Squeeze 4.3.3 to create the FLV file, the
    only audio option I get is for "uncompressed." I cannot chose the
    elusive Fraunhofer MP3 codec. It simply ... isn't ... there.

    I've installed WM 10, I've installed Adobe Premiere, and I have Avid
    Pro on my system. Nothing helps.

    Am I just SOL and I have to publish these FLVs with uncompressed audio
    that exceeds the bitrate of the video itself?

    Has anybody encountered this problem before? The same situation exists
    on a computer not five feet away from me. Any help that anyone can
    provide will be hugely appreciated.

    After reading you post, I just opened Squeeze 4.3.3 and after opening a
    variety of the Flash Encoder presets - each of them has the Fraunhoffer
    codec as the default option.

    Could someone have inadvertently trashed (or perhaps just moved) the

    Of might you have changed something else when you were importing the
    original video clips that has made them incompatible with the Fraunhofer

    With my setup (Mac Quad Intel G5 running Squeeze 4.3.303.17 - the option
    is there for virtually all .flv settings.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.
