Abstract

This paper addresses the specific technical qualities of Flash Video and its underlying codec. It suggests that the current divergence of high and low resolution media is indicative of a change in the nature of mediated social structures. It suggests that low-resolution media may have a greater utopian dimension, albeit still a very depleted one, than high-definition media
