no one posted yet I'll start with a noob question

Postby nz87 » Fri Jun 28, 2002 4:32 pm

ok I made a new music video, and I've tried my hardest to compress it (MY hardest maybe you can do better....what am I taling about of course you can) as much as possable I got it to 23 meg..... I believe angelfire is at 20 meg I would prefer not to have to different site with half on each. I even tried RARing, Zipping, and Winace and couldn't save more than 1 meg. Anyone know any other site like angel fire (FREE) with like a 25 meg limit or higher.... Thanks for your time :wink:

You know, with WinRAR, you can split the video into two files. I'm not exactly sure how, but that should solve your problems. To unzip it again, both files need to be in the same folder.

BTW, some advice. From experience, it's a bad idea to ask about hosting/webspace.

ok I won't ask about web hosting anymore, but here's the thing I know EXACTLY how to split with rar but I'll have to have two site...... I would really like to avoid that I feel it may seem to much to some people for one video. Maybe that's just me and crazy head I'm probably going to rar it anyways.... 2 sites is better than none.....

Oh wait, you mean all the space you get is 20MB? Oh, I thought you meant the file size limit.

Well, I'd recommend Topcities to you. You get 150 MB free, and 600 MB Bandwidth monthly. However, the file size limit is 900 KB, so a lot of splitting would be required, unless you upgrade.

a) 600mb of bandwidth is *nothing* in the amv world

b) You can always compress a video more, what software, codec, resolution and bitrate are you compressing to?

If in doubt read the unofficial FAQ (below) and the site's guides.

600 Mb is indeed, nothing. Try http://www.alwayswebhosting.com , they have been hooking me up pretty good. 60 Gb a month is about right for an AMV site.

Hey Wonka,
www.alwayswebhosting.com's terms of service says that they don't allow copyrighted material. How do you get around that?

I just talked with the head tech guy and told him exactly what I do, and he said that it would be fine.

On a separate subject, is my site banner sig realy that big for you guys? Ive had several people complain, and I dont want to screw with anybody, but its only 60kb! I mean, its tiny, I dont get it. But ahh well, if it realy bothers people, Ill take it down.

nz87, I had 3 people download a video that was 16 megs yesterday and my site went under for 2 hours on bandwidth overuse. Looks like we need better hosts fast. Anyway if you're trying to compress heavily you can't use anything better than RealVideo 9. If you need the prog to encode in that I can get it to you, at 320 x 240 512 kbps is totally artifact free and you can go under 384 with decent quality if you want it real small.

Video dub is the best I've found for compressing. Other than that, just mess with your statistics till the file size comes down. I got a 400 meg AMV down to 40 after about five minutes of random option choosing.

Wonka... the deal through alwayswebhosting sounds really good. I'm currently using hostinggroup.com as my webhosting service. They're really good (excellent up-time, technical support, etc.), but they only offer 6GB of bandwidth per month for about the same price as alwayswebhosting.

I am a little skeptical as to how they can offer 60GB of bandwidth a month for such a low price though. Will they, if I get an account through them, suddenly cancel my service if I use alot of bandwidth?

But I'm extremely intrigued about it. 60GB of bandwidth would be awesome! Any help on this would be great, as you seem to have a decent grasp as to what that company is all about.

Sevices that cancel for high bandwidth dont tell you how much you can use in their Terms and Conditions.

You pay for 60gig you get 60gig.

They can change it in the future... if they do you leave.

There. simple.

If you exceed the bandwidth limit, we have it on record that the head tech guy will personally start finding mirrors for you and go out of his way to help you out. Its a good company man.

I'm almost positive they wouldn't cancel your shit as long as you don't do anything like 120+ gigs a month. There very tolerant over there.

I believe http://lunarpages.com (the TRIAL version ALONE) gives you 50 MB FREE!! Oh. There are these also:

http://www.mangled.org/servers/
http://freehosts.i85.net/
http://www.web1000.com/

I use angelfire also, but when I registered they promised me 50 MB. My little meter says I've used 16.3 MB of 50 MB of free space. Strange. Really strange. I'm glad you asked this question because I had the same problem (I was making a video for my friends, not anime-just photos of us, and the first one went well, but the second one...it was 48 MB or something---haha!).
"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he pass'd;
And the eyes of the sleepers wax'd deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"
-George Gordon Byron
