Standard Definition clips are available in Photo-JPEG codec. Low Resolution clips are encoded using H.264 codec. [Footage of the World, [ "Frequently Asked Questions", 2008] ]


Footage of the World indexes its clips 72 different ways and gives the users the ability to filter the result set based on the different indexes. It also uses keywords that can be used to search the clip library. The filter and keyword technologies can be used together.

The Footage of the World website uses Adobe Flash to present all videos. To generate its Thumbnails, it uses the command line tool ffmpeg. Each clip within the search results plays upon rollover.
