I searched. Honest. I saw 'best format for uploading to youtube' but not to forums in general.
I had a video (created using sony vegas 8 pro) posted to a forum, four minutes, some odd seconds, that took even longer to load/buffer, everyone complained and yet, the same video loaded fine at youtube.
Is there a specific size/file type/special encoding for mp4/mp2 that will load faster on forums and still not lose too much quality? Thanks.
