Having high quality interactive material on your website is a great way to cling to customer attention and encourage traffic flow to your site.

Though there are many options for providing such material on your site, Flash capability is the most popular and user-friendly.
Unlike embedding downloadable files which are cumbersome for the user and can take awhile to download, flash video is usually streaming from the server, which means very little download time for those watching the video. With flash video, the video buffers continually meaning it only needs a portion of the video downloaded before they can begin watching it and it will continue to buffer ahead of the play as they watch (depending of course on the connection speed).

Aside from the modification the viewer can make like full screen options and changing aspect ratio to better fit on various monitors and television screens, it is easy to modify for the maker as well.
