    I downloaded your SC SP video from 04 Nationals (and thanks, because I don't have any footage from 04 nationals...I didn't tape it). It was very smooth, I'd say average quality for the size. When YSI does work for me it's very fast so the 22mb file downloaded within about 90 sec I'd say. But after years of being on a dial-up connection I naturally feel sorry for those people. It was tough having people post these huge files and having to sit for several minutes or hours to download them.

    That's about the best you'll get with WMV, though. That's why I looked to another codec to start sharing...I mean, the files are good but I wanted to go for a smaller filesize. I think I finally achieved that with these .mp4 files (and my trusty program, hehe. Just hope it continues to function.)

    RD, I am taking what you said as the video I did was OK in downloading and quality. I understand what you mean by the OK quality. Yes, If I made it perfect, the file would be huge. What I did was stream it in medium quality. I can go to small, and I think I did it once just to test and the pic frame was about 2 1/2 X 2 1/2. I can't remember if I increased the size to 200% to see what it looked like. I need to try that again.

    I have some free web space on my email program which is only about 10 MB's but if I make a video under 3/12 minutes I am able to upload there and people don't have to download.

    I'm sending you a PM about another issue.

    yeah, I think you should do that. With the .mp4 file and using 15FPS I can run up to 6 minutes without going over 10MB. And that's just wonderful.

    Dee, the vids you did of Sasha were nice (I think they are from VHS tape to comp?) much cleaner than the Sonja's bio you did last week.

    RD the last one of the ceremony is just fine at 15fps as you expected. I like how FFactory has the different options for download.

    Sean, the Sonja video was taped off of a PBS special. The footage was old and that's why it looked old. My Sasha videos were taped VHS then dubbed to DVD, then formated to mpg, then uploaded to a movie maker program.

    File Transfer Protocol can be a "safer" load, particularly when working with servers. I don't have a need for it - well I might if I didn't trust the source, but I most likely wouldn't bother with downloading something like that anyway.

    P2P (peer to peer), works well with realtime and can adjust for bandwidth, I have never used it but I sounds like it might be good for Dial-up.

    I have always used Hyper Trans Pro, just 'cause it has always stable for me and it makes me envision little ones and zeroes floating though the wires . Really it is just habit now that it is stable with the W3 improvements, and doesn't omit any features - which in this case were not an issue.

    OK, it took 168 minutes to compress w/H264 to a 320x280, and got it down to 14.17mb. took about 2 minutes to get on YSI.
    I will now try RDs pref site.

    Heres the file, it will also be the sig tag on my posts for a while

    Oh, just under 6 minutes for video length, and just under 3 for compression.

    More interesting info - the compression H264 took 5.5 hours to compress to 640x38 but the file size came to be 15.1mb. very good news to get twice the size of video res. just took a long time. This file is under my signature.

    I also uploaded it to FileFactory and after the 10 minutes they require before it is available I will also post it. I took a couple more minutes to upload to FF.

    This is a first time for FileFactory for me, so I hope this is the correct link.

    hmm. The program I use does not allow for a screen res higher than about 360x240 (what I've been using to post the above videos). However I do have the MainConcept H.264 engine which allows me to achieve quality much much closer to the original. However, it is an .mpg H264 file instead of .mp4 (and no, I don't believe changing the extension will work) so one needs the MC engine and not the QT engine. But here's the catch: I can't find any free software that has the MC engine...it's all shareware ( meaning you can try the product out for a limited time with limited features and then after the time expires they make you pay to continue using it). But for posting videos these mp4's are more than good enough, IMO.

    ? That is interesting about the size limits. And silly me said 320..oops. 360 as well.
    That size is plenty good. I was so surprised at the file size when the screen size was double. ? I really thought it would be closer to 25mb at least.

    Did the FileFactory vid work for you? How was the quality? And does YSI just not work at all for you?

    BTW. cool vid page, never heard of them. Mind if I follow suit?
