Overview
It is a multimedia container file format which is used over the internet to provide digital video content to the users. Digital video content includes TV shows or series, movies; etc. Adobe Flash Player 6 and new versions provide support to it. To play flash video from Personal Computer and online websites we need an FLV player. Although, Apple iOS does not support Flash, yet, with the help of additional software, one can play flash videos. Also, it is a common platform for various websites that allows video streaming such as YouTube, Yahoo! Video, Metacafe, Hulu; etc . With the help of screen capturing and other recording programs, screen recording is possible for flash videos. Furthermore, it also supports a screen share or screen cast.
Technical description
FLV files mostly have video bitstreams which are one of the variants of H.263 Standard and it is named as Sorenson park(FourCC FLV1). The SWF files and this extension uses the identical way to encode data. There are two variants available for screen casting. First one is lossy as it reduces colour depth or bit depth (number of bits used to indicate the colour of one pixel) and compresses the data. The second type is only compatible with Flash Player 8 and the newer versions. Both these aforesaid kinds are based on bitmap tile. Uncompressed Audio or ADPCM format audio is also supported by it. This format has header and packets in its video structure. A standard header includes signature, version, flags and header size.

Overview
OGV is a free and an open container format for digital media(Audio, Video and text). It is unpatented software and can be used by users free of cost. It compresses the files using lossy compression and discards the redundant information which human ear incapable to process. It is used especially for online streaming. Furthermore, this format is also good for data manipulation and it is standardized by OGG Vorbis. This format is a container format used for Audio, Video and metadata files. For compressing of files, it uses Vorbis Compression Technology. The recorded content can be played using different software like VideoLan VLC Media player and Helix player; etc.
Technical description
An OGV file can have separate unrestricted open-source codecs for varied media types like audio, video, text. Theora and DivX are some examples. It supports variable bit rate and based on Discrete cosine transform (DCT) compression pattern. To compress or encode videos it uses Chroma subsampling (Due to low acuity for colours by humans, it uses less resolution to encode images),block-based motion compensation and an 8-by-8 DCT block. The pixels in it are grouped together in various structures- blocks, super blocks and macroblocks. Videos on the web pages can be played using HTML coding i.e. HTML5< video > tag. Although these files have different source code, yet, the videos in this format are often addressed as OGG files in HTML source code. In addition to this, a DirectShow codec pack is provided by the developers so that this format can be used both as open-source and for commercial applications as well.
