"What format are your satellite movies in?"
"How do you play your FLI and JAVA movies?"
We have two different formats for our satellite image movies within the CIMSS Tropical Cyclone page; FLI and JAVA. We decided on these types of movies for many reasons :
JAVA-format movies are also offered to those people who have JAVA compatable web browsers (newer versions of Netscape). JAVA allows you to look at a loop without having to download any special software to view the movie. Plus, it is easy for us to maintain (the individual FLI images are in GIF format also, so we don't have redundant imagery in two different formats).
