I finally got my comp running again and have a couple short video clips I'd like to post. Got to the upload page at wakepics and it shows that it is loading forever. What is the trick? - the vids are MPEG and under 20 meg.

if it looks like it is uploading
then just wait it could take an hour or more depending on the amount of people uploading their vids

The trick is to be patient. It can take a while to upload.

It finally worked - took about 30 mins so I assumed it was not working - thanks

Now I can finally give Steve Cowen the video of his son blowing out his ear.

I will do that as soon as I creat my email account on my comp. A virus wiped out my whole comp so I am reinstalling all of the programs - lots of fun!

Be nice and compress... Your videos should not be more than 3.5/megs per 1 minute.

What program are you using to edit/export your videos?

Kung Fu - How do you compress? My vids are WAY too big for what they are. WAY TOO BIG!

Jakeman, I'm back home now. Still dont have my home email working so I cant send you the videos. Will do it when I get it working.

Kung Fu - I right clicked and hit "send to: compressed" but the file went from 15 MB to 12.5 MB for a 50 second clip. Any advice on how to make this much much smaller?

Jim - There are a number of ways.

1) For Movie Maker follow the 4 easy steps I have outlined in the following post (scroll down till you see the pic with the 4 steps)

2) Download Windows Media Encoder 9 from Microsoft.. Itís FREE, it will compresses your video in no time (overall speed is dependent on your system of course), and once you know what you're doing it easy to do. To get WME-9 do the following:

a) Go here
b) From the Select Download drop-down, pick "Windows Media Encoder"
c) Download the appropriate version for your OS.
d) Install it

3) For Adobe Premiere you can do the following:

a) From the Tool Bar select File > Export Timeline > Advance Window Media -or- Advance Real Media Export
b) Select your desired settings.

I prefer option #2 because I can specify settings that are not available in option #3, but thatís just my personal preference.

If you decide to go with step #2 let me know and Iíll write up some instruction. I'll even provide you with some general settings to get you started.

If you really, really, really want to find out more about compression check out Be warned, itís has a lot of detail and itís quite long!
