Help with Flash Video on Web
Hi all you tech guru's!
I created a 25min Jetski Video using Adobe Encore in a Flash format
viewable by web browsers.
Question - How do I put this on Youtube, DailyMotion, IFilm, etc.?
Encore generated several small files, including an Index file. When I click
on this index file it launches the video fine in my Firefox browser.
The main file is a 99mb .flv format file.
I want to put this file up everyone can view it.

Once you're happy with your final result, you'll need to save the video in a format that YouTube can accept in order to upload. Unless you're a professional video producer, we recommend that you save your videos as either QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files— these are the most common formats and they work well within our system. We specifically recommend the MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format at 320x240 resolution with MP3 audio. Resizing your video to these specifications before uploading will help your clips look better on YouTube.

your probably right
I have since found out that Youtube uses .flv as it's playback format.
You can upload .flv files as it is native to Yourtube and they actually
process it faster.
I did this but they still rejected me because it was over 20min (26min).
Since it is a fully produced piece I ain't cuttin' it up!
I have also been having problems with some other sites because their
filter are rejecting the video because it has copywrighted music in it.
thanks for the input

Thanks for the offer
I was able to upload to Ifilm
93mb file. The data rate is so slow, I think it's 200k/sec that it
gets jerky at times depending on what is going on in the frame.
The price is right, free...........
I may have to set up a hosting website myself to have a little
more control over it.
I used to have a post production house back in 90's and did a lot
with the then new DV format. I built non linear edit systems on
the NT platform using Adobe Premier. This was my first project in
10 years......now I've got to load up on all the new stuff and get
I'd like to shoot Mudbug next June in High Def with about 3 or 4 shooters.
Get a hot chick to do the stand up interviews, mix in some good sounds
and it'll be a piece that we should be able to get on national TV.

Hi Tom, here is my routine and the clips always turn out good:
Take cam footage and dump it into the computer.
Edit with Premiewr.
De-interlace with Virtualdub. Get it here free:
I use the de-interlace plugin that comes in the package. Makes the movie flicker free and sharpens the imaging.
Then lastly, I convert to .mpeg2 format and check the file size. Then upload. (takes a while but worth the effort)
See sample of size vs. sharpness here:
Hope this helps.
