This FLV Info tool enables you to view embedded MetaData without needing to play the video. Just like the SWFInfo tool I blogged about last year, using this tool you select your FLV file using the FileReference class and then you can view all you need to know about your Flash video : duration, width, height, videodatarate, framerate, videocodecid and stereo values.
It works by converting the loaded FLV data into a ByteArray and then searching for the string values associated with each metadata value. Then it reads either a double-precision (64-bit) floating-point number from the ByteArray, or in the case of ‘stereo’, a Boolean value. Also it will tell you how the videocodecid number translates into an understandable string value (i.e. VP6, H263 or AVC).
