Bring back the .flv codec
The old .flv codec that was discontinued years ago is truly a revolutionary codec that can make a standard alpha animation that would normally range anywhere from 200MB to several gigs into less than 10mb. There is still television software like JVC that uses that old format. I understand that flash had security issues and other problems, but as for the codec, it was the only alpha channel codec that made picture perfect animations even smaller in size than most non-alpha codecs. There is no danger for hacking a movie file. For this reason, for internal performance of your own and for personal storage for extra large and bulky alpha based animations, the FLV codec should be reconsidered. While flash can remain it's grave, the codec is greater than anything you have and could improve performance significantly. Even if you rename the extension to something proprietary, please bring back or reverse engineer this codec as it will significantly make your product better. It isn't important that other players can't support this because alpha channel renders are used for production purposes mostly. Thank you.
