View Full Version : first time I've tried VideoReDo
October 28th, 2004, 11:07 PM
I downloaded the free download. I have a clip I created with my camera. It shows to to be in .mpeg format and is 15 seconds long. I want the clip to be about 5 seconds long from the beginning. When I cut out the back 10 seconds and save my file it becomes a .mpg file. It seems to work, until I upload it to my website. The first frame does come up but it just sorts of bobbles about 2 times and doesn't do anything. I have checked my file names and code and everything seems to be ok. The file did work ok on my website before I tried to cut it short too. What could be causing this problem?

Post the link here, or email it to us at email@example.com. We'd be glad to take a look at it and see if there's an obvious problem.

My husband's computer did run the video. He has an automatic download program on his computer. Mine is still doing the stay in one place and sort of bobble.
thanks for your help.
It took 9 minutes for the 5 second file to download to his computer. Is there anyway to convert the file to make it download faster? We are on dialup as that is all we have in a rual area.

Just a suggestion...
If you take the original video, use Videoredo to edit it, then open Windows Movie Maker (this comes with WindowsXP at least).
Now you can "Import" the video and "Save As".
There will be several 'compression' settings available to you, so that dial-ups can view the video without having long download times, plus you won't lose too much quality. You'll need to try different compression settings to find what works for you.
I have some on my site that look reasonable, yet don't take up too much space:
Ps. Click on the "Videos" button

Let me echo Peter's suggestion, convert the file to WMV, it will be much smaller and download faster. You don't even need Windows Movie Maker to do this. You can download the WMV 9 encoder from MSoft and convert your MPEG file quite easily.

Ok guys, I did both. I did what Peter said to first and was able to lighten the film as well as save as .wnv and it did shrink in size from 1,640 to 1,240.
I also downloaded the WMW encoder. I was able to convert the file but could not tell if the file was smaller. It still takes 5 minutes on dial up to download. Is this normal for a 4.89 second video?
Thanks so much for your replys. I really appreciate it.

The WMV encoder has lots of options, if you want a smaller file, choose one of the porject types that has a lower bit rate. Usually around 1-1.5 Mbps is a good bitrate for small videos on the web.
