Thread: best format/encoding/size for posting to forums

  1. #1

    Question best format/encoding/size for posting to forums

    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.

    There is no best - many ways to skin the you tube cat.

    I do mine up loads as 3 mbit/sec 720p wmv - or 1.5 for static program.

    NEVER leave silence or black at extreme ends of clip - it often screws the sync - well that is what i find.

    Where were you uploading to? If you were uploading to a site which converts the video, the buffering you encountered was due to the server side paramaters and nothing to do with your video.

    yea - my web server space was often poor - check streaming parameters with vendor.

    Thank you both. I'll check into that.
