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
WEBM is a multimedia container used for both audio and video formats. It is open-source and royalty-free software due to this, it can be implemented and changed for improvement by any developer. It uses different codecs to compress files. For instance, for video streams compression it uses VP8 or VP9 video codecs and for audio streams, it uses Vorbis or Opus audio codecs. It provides videos of the highest quality and that too with real-time delivery. It provides users with the playback option on any device which is due to the low computational footprint. It is licensed under BSD(A family of acceptable free software licenses). Besides this, it has another project named as Webp for images.
Technical description
Its structure is based on the Matroska container. That is why it can support both multiplexing and de-multiplexing. It uses core technologies like HTML, HTTP and TCP/IP which can be easily implemented and this is the main reason for its success. VP8 and VP9 are highly efficient to provide video of the highest quality. It is cost-effective due to its greater efficiency for bandwidths. It is a substitute for H.264 and MPEG4 which are patented software and have copyright. Videos of this format allow playback but it is possible only in Android version 2.3 that is Gingerbread and above. When ‘Rockchip’ came into the market in 2001 it made possible the implementation of full hardware of 1080p. Also, LiVES video editor version 1.4.9 allows coding and deflating of videos in real-time.
