Great thread guys!
I've, also, done some nice stuff with PHP, and I'm sure I'll take something
out of this discussion!
Luke, the feature of keeping track of the bytes offset of each keyframe is a
must in my opinion, for any solution that might end-up reparsing the file to
seek such information. If the information is to be kept in RAM...don't ask
me, I'd say it depends on the situation.
Flashcom once had index files next to the flv files stored in the same
folder. I don't remember the name/extension of those file, but if I'm not
wrong, those files where indexes of keyframes in the flv. Since then, they
have changed their way of keeping track of such information, or even totally
changed the way they attack the question!? (who knows...hehe)
On another note, would it be possible to seek randomly in a file and be
able, from that cursor location, to find the start of the next FLV Tag
packet? This could potentially be interesting to create a good enough
solution that doesn't involve indexing of the keyframes.
