Im Adobe Labs gibt es ein neues Programm: FLVCheck Tool. Es dient dazu, fehlerhafte Flashvideo-Dateien zu identifizieren, die in Verbindung mit dem Flash Media Server Probleme machen könnten. Grund dafür sind z.B. fehlerhafte Metadaten, ungültige Timestamps, ungültiger Header oder defekte Audio-/Videodaten in den Videos.

Mit FLV Check kann also überprüft werden, ob mit Encodern von anderen Herstellern erstellte Flashvideo-Dateien (.flv) sich an die Datei-Spezifikationen halten.

The Adobe® FLVCheck tool allows you to modify FLV files that are created by non-Adobe technology so that they conform to the Adobe FLV file specification. Malformed messages inside the FLV file have been found to disrupt the quality of service when watching Flash Video over the Macromedia® Flash® Media Server. To ensure your FLV files are properly formed, use this FLVCheck tool to check the FLV files before you let others see them.

This alpha version of the command-line tool is Windows-only. You can use custom batch files to run the FLVCheck tool and test your FLV files as part of the creation process using your non-Adobe technology. The FLVCheck tool will verify internal timestamps, metadata, and message headers to help identify FLV files that may have trouble playing back from Flash Media Server. The tool supports Unicode file names.

The FLVCheck tool will inspect the FLV file and will only return information about the composition of the file. FLVCheck does not correct the FLV data if it is corrupted. If an error is found, you will need to re-encode the file to get the best quality of service for your consumers.
