Are lossless AVIs (HuffYUV/Lagarith/etc.) acceptable?

Just to be clear, that's sample rate. What about bit depth and bitrate?

I'll try to update my vid for this contest, I'm interested in participating :)

by the way if there are words like "Fuck" or "Bitch" in my vid, is that mean that the vid will be disqualified :?:

As long as the language is not excessive (Every 2-3 words wouldn't be acceptable) then there is no problem with a few swears :P .

The submissions are still working so don't worry about that error too much. It will be fixed soon.
