The FXhome cinema has been upgraded to allow FLV movies. This means that VideoWrap users can now use the FXhome Flash template to create a version of the movie that will play directly on the page itself, without having to rely on the blur-o-vision of YouTube.

The Terra-Cotta Soldier is the first film to make use of this new feature, so check it out!

That's cool. I'm not sure I quiet get how it's supposed to work though, do you upload your videos to the cinema itself or do you upload the flash template to a website and put the link to it in the cinema? Either way, pretty cool.

I also noticed you added the "programs used" section. Very nice!

I'm the one who made The Terra-Cotta Soldier. I just put links to the FLV files, just like you would to an .wmv, .mp4, or .avi. Then the Cinema embeds them in the page with the player. Also, notice there are two more parts to my film (if you're watching the flash version). Just click the part 2 and part 3 links down below to finish watching the film.

That's great! We can now have quality movies without downloading anything! (I'll go check out Terra-Cotta Soldier right now.)

This is a truely great addition to the cinema considering FLV files have the potential to harbor such nice quality, but with fast loading times.

Does the "Downloads" text in the film pages only follow the actual downloaded files from the server, or does it also track the streaming .flv files? smile
