Re: A Forum just for videos - request

If they are vids under 500kb, upload them to our gallery. I have started the first one off.

You just need to use the windows movie player to reduce the size of the videos.

Re: A Forum just for videos - request

Maybe a lounge to post just video links. That could work.

A "Just videos" lounge.

Agreed, though we should probably have some sections within the "lounge" to keep tabs on all the videos: Alfa, Other Cars, Non Car related, etc.

I am talking about this clip in .wmv format. The low quality version in .wmv format is 8.2 Mb.

If I compress it to 1.1 Mb all I see are some blurry images. If I was able (Windows Movie Maker won't let me) to compress it to below 500 Kb the member cars can probably no longer be recognized

Re: A Forum just for videos - request

But what about GhostyDog's suggestion of a lounge just to post video links, not the videos themselves??

Not sure if all video links should go in one lounge/area, but maybe Alfa related ones, or ones that might be keepers rather than the WOT joke/humour posts, IMHO However, saying that though, if a lot of threads are just single links to internet Vids, then I can see why that might annoy some

Re: A Forum just for videos - IN PRODUCTION

Hi...

These things take months of work you know, it needs to authenticate with the current software and permissions and its not like buildng a web page where you are done in an hour, of course if there are any experienced php programers out there that want to help out... Shout me

Its been started but mostly I work on it when I put the classifieds software development down You wil get it, rest assured that Bowles is at the controls.

Excellent! I just bought a bullet cam and tested it on the bella the other day... I was wondering about the best way to share it (rather big file!)... can't wait for some video-sharing action on AO!
