Hi,

A whole tale of woes here :)

I have a professionally made video. originally in the VOB format. I am trying to get it working in the web page without it being too heavy. prefer x-browser but as an interim measure, windoze media player is OK.

Converted it to wmv, mov and mpg and it is huge in them all except wmv. 41megs -v- 125megs -v- 90 megs respectively.

If you have any tips on how to compress this 4 min video it would help me greatly.

But in the meantime, as I read and read for the answer, is this close to the currently required code to run media player.



<object type="video/x-ms-wmv"
data="http://mysite/file.wmv"
width="280" height="46">
<param name="src"
value="http://mysite/file.wmv" />
<param name="autostart" value="true" />
<param name="controller" value="true" />
</object>

Windows Media Player yes thats the closest valid code. I do suggest however that you convert the file to flv or mp4 format and use a flash video player. I believe flash player 9 can play mp4 files no problem of course file size will be greater than the flv file. I suggest flv because it will be way smaller in size than the wmv but it may lose some quality but you likely won't notice it.

If you have flash CS4 you probably already have the media encoder.

Thanks for that ~ I'll look into it some more.

However, converting to flv makes my file 56Mb from 35Mb. :confused:

Its going to depend on the compression you used and the quality you wanted as well. What did you use to encode your video?

It was originally two VOB files which I converted to avi and then joined. Then I ran them through Vegas Pro 9.0 (trial) and it gave me a .mov file of 35Mb.

It runs fine online (buffering takes a bit), but, I would rather haver it as small as possible before I move it to a streaming server.

I converted your video using FLV Medium NTSC format and its now about 23mb. I converted it to F4V Medium NTSC and its about 15mb.

The resolution has changed but its still decent quality at that size.

which software did you use Aero? Vegas 9.0 (trial) doesn;t seem to give an option of saving as NTSC and in the Moyea software, it lets me save as flv but not in any specific format, like NTSC.

I ran it through Prism and it compressed it too much - not having enabled me to choose how much compression to give it. :(

I am reluctant to buy back my own vid :D

Funy thing is.. I get a pixelated result with prism when the vid is 26Mb.

If used the Flash Media Encoder that comes with Flash CS4.
