This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The only way to get more quality out of flash is to raise your encoding rate (vbitrate=800 to vbitrate=1200, for example). This will, however, result in much larger files and will require your visitors to have to have internet connections of at least 1.5Mb to view your videos without stuttering all of the time.
