Back in August of 2004, shortly after its release, we blogged about a problem we came across with SS4 not correctly writing much needed metadata to FLV files it generates. You can read the original post here. In the comments of that post, you will see that I received a response from their support department that the problem had been passed on to the techs and they were working on a solution, that would probably be available in a point release.
Well, I noticed today that 4.1 had been released (AFTER 8 MONTHS) and hurriedly downloaded it with much anticipation of being able to output valid, useful FLV files, without relying on other software. Their updates do not seem to come with a readme on what has been fixed, nor does the update site seem to supply such information. However, as this is a Flash centered program and that was one of the most obvious problems, I just assumed it was fixed. After some tests, my hopes were soon dashed against the rocks and I remembered that little saying about not ASSuming…
SSOOO, I sent another email off to support, asking what exactly was updated… Below is my original email and that returned from their support staff.
