The Flix Engine line currently supports transcoding to H.263 and On2 TrueMotion VP6 compression schemes for the FLV format used by Adobe Flash Player 8 and 9, and the H.263 3GPP format used in the mobile video industry. On2 will further expand
H.264 support in its Flix product line of desktop, server and browser-based encoding solutions.
