*waves* Hello. I have a question about zarx264gui and I was wondering if anybody may have had a similar experience.Background/Set-up:
I am using zarx for the very first time. I used it to compress a live action video last night and it was gorgeous. Beyond expectations. However, I noticed it wouldn't stream from my own web server. Eventually it did play, but it was distorted and lacked sound. Thinking it was somehow an issue with the website (I'm fairly new to hosting videos at my own space) I just gave up and decided to try uploading to streaming sites as per usual. I tried youtube first, and the video was better, but the first few seconds were completely distorted.
Finally, Vimeo worked fine. Success. (?)
Nope. After posting, someone privately messaged me to tell me that on their mac, the video would not play in quicktime at all. They had the same distorted/no-sound issue I had on my own site. I reluctantly pulled up VDubMod and created an AVI file for them to try. It worked fine.
So my question is; what could cause this? Has anyone else had experience with this. If I'm missing any vital information I'll try to get an answer. As I said, this is my first time and this whole encoding/compressing process has always been confusing to me.
A few things:
I vid in Sony Vegas 10.0
My source material was comprised up of both mpg and avi files.
I use the ut yuv422 uly2 codec to render the AVI [Did not choose this for any particular reason.]
Here is the file itself, in case that helps: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QNRS3XB0
And one last note, both Vimeo and Tumblr were able to convert this mp4 into a working file (in quicktime.) I used a firefox add-on to snag those files after uploading and both of them worked fine in quicktime.
Thanks for your help.
