Description

Hello, I am trying to make a .flv video with alpha channel, but the BG keeps coming out black.
I was able to get a transparent background with the .webv format, but the machine I will be using this file is very weird and only reads .flv files.

Do I need to add some special code on the "extra parameters..." box to achieve a transparent BG?

Build: ffmpeg-20180522-fe84f70-win64-static

From: quicktime .mov animation codec with alpha to .flv with alpha.

FFmpeg does not even support VP6 encoding, let alone VP6 encoding with alpha channel...
