iPod touch compatible upload slots on the Org?

Postby gotegenks » Mon Mar 08, 2010 10:16 am

I just found out if you have a direct link to an ipod touch compatible video from here, you click the link and it'll play on your ipod.

i think it'd be great if the Org let you have another upload slot for ipod touch compatible formats

a good program i use is http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dv ... verter.htm

but i think it'd be nifty, not exactly necessary, but convenient at times! if you wanna check up on the Org from out of your home and just watch a vid real quick and go comment on the forum topic, or even if you are at home and your grounded! :sweat:

well, idk, i thought it was a good idea.

Or, you know, Apple could pull their head out of there arse and support Flash (like the rest of the fracking world does) and you could just click the "Preview" link...

Flash is not needed for simple video playback. Hell, most of all flash video is just H.264 and AAC now. And it doesn't have to be in a FLV container. Flash plays MP4 files now. We can have Flash for use on a full computer and just playback the file via other means on other devices. The ideal situation would be if HTML5 video was actually a standard, but right now it's a big mess. In the mean time, there are solutions like this Video for Everybody.

I don't think the org needs a second upload slot, if you want to offer ipod compatible files and your "regular distribution file", then host the second file on your own server, and then direct or indirect link to them. Plenty of people already offer secondary distribution files that way.

i guess i didn't do much research though so i'll back off .___.

I'm curious about the files you host yourself though. How is the download ratio vs the normal files/links?

pretty terrible if you count previews, but i have yet to premier a vid with that option...not that it'd make a big difference, but not even the normal direct download got near as much as the local download, and the itouch compatible directs are only a little less than half downloaded of the normal directs.

it's not like you could expect them to be downloaded as much as the regulars, it's just a way of having the Org ipod touch friendly, it could be said to be a second streaming link,

...but at the moment it's just if people like my vids enough to show to their friends at skool :P

Why would we want to enable the macfags? I don't get it. Shouldn't they be forced to suffer the downside of their proprietary lock-ins? How else will they learn?

scratch that, they're over double the regular directs, but still kinda fail in comparison to the locals and previews, although i did not premier the vid with that option.

This. Just because the Apple TV (at the least) supports YouTube-styled encodes, doesn't mean we have the obligation to support them. The audience for the Org's hosting is generally PC users anyway.

The general point of why people use Local hosting is for the standard quality encodes - encodes which are meant for playback on a PC, where screen resolution is not a concern. The Local server has always been meant to store one and only one copy of the encode, if not video (re-edits discounted), and this topic has come up before, just maybe not with this latest iteration. It always gets shot down.

If you're really that concerned about iWhatever users, then just make the main encode compatible with it (or do what you already do, and host them elsewhere). To me that's just sort of like pissing into the wind, though, since so few people would really care about it, and think of the benefits you'd be losing, encode-wise, trying to support them. It's just not worth it, IMO. If they really want to have the stuff on their Phones and digital music players (what do you mean they're for playing music?), there's plenty of conversion apps out there, and they should already be pretty familiar with them if they're used to using those devices for practically everything anyway.

To be clear, I don't mean this as Mac vs. PC, Macs are Personal Computers too, after all (and moreover, even x86-based since the Intel switch). I meant they actually use a desktop, laptop, or netbook with at least a decently-sized monitor or screen, not a mobile device with a small viewing area.

i'm not saying so that it's convenient to just put on your ipod,

what i'm saying (which probably sounds a lot more spoiled) is that if we come here on the web browser of an itouch or an iphone we can't see the vids, but with this we could!

it is a stretch and probably not worth it though, i just wanted to put it out there
