People PLEASE read my video compression tutorial!

http://forum.mtavc.com/viewtopic.php?t=5463

There is no reason for a 1-2 minute video to be anywhere larger than 4 or 5 megs...

EDIT: I just checked out the above video. Dude, with the quality settings you are using for your MPEG I recommend you re-encode it with DIVX. I could easily cram that whole video into under 4 MB at the the SAME visual quality...

P.S. Did I see some spawn camping at the airport going on? tsk tsk. 8)

I uploaded and downloaded it with no problems... (curly's video). What I did notice when I downloaded the large one is that the server reset the connection halfway through the file transfer. I used getright and it worked fine.

hahaha, yeah curly, considering urs is like the only good one finished! LOL

Just wait! I'm almost done :wink: That's all I'm going to say for the moment :twisted:

Just checked Curly's video again... No problems downloading here!

OK got them, now what codec did you guys use? i have div2,3 and 4 installed, it isnt any of those, and AvInfo doesnt recognise it.

I had problems with the last video post too. I installed the NEW DivX 5.1 and it seemed to work (I deleted it yesterday because I had a retarded moment).

I know curly's video is encoded using 5.1 because I did that for curly myself.

EDIT: If media player is being a bitch, remember to try the DivX's "The Playa"

Hmm i have that, and yet both yours and curlies play with a lot of graphical mess (random coloured boxes) and skipping sound in media player, power dvd, windvd. and with perfect pisture yet at 1/2 speed and broken sound in virtualdub

I fuggin HATE codecs

have you tried the divx playa? It always works if media player (and any other program that uses the media player API to play avi's) play's with encoding errors.

Another suggestion (this is going to sound real stupid): scandisk and defrag your machine... I've watched both videos no errors no problems using windows media player 9...

OK, 'the playa' worked perfectly (thanks Ponch) NBS|Imperial - very nice indeed, Curly - I look forward to seeing the finished article with more than 2 seconds of combat :)
