I'm havin trouble getting a video to upload

can anyone help?
can upload pics, but not video
I;ve tried mpeg1, mpeg2, avi
it's 2.5 minutes long
I know I've seen longer films on there

does it need to be compressed?

Cliff,

One of their requirements is it can't take longer than 600 seconds, so even if the file format and size is ok, but you have a slow connection (or their site is slow), it fails.

By the way, we are shipping your TopMount Trakker Monday, so you can get some more good video to play with next week

great
thanks Bryan
my connection is ok
but there are so many different ways to create a movie
I can't seem to make a small file
here is one that I did manage to get through...but I have to download it cause it'll only play on the windows player
it is filmed from the pan/tilt unit that is on top of a Trakker
the quality suffered cause of the way I saved it

Upload

Quality looks ok to me. Have you tried saving (or exporting) to .wmv? Seems to work best for me with Premiere.

Yeah, pretty bad... I was looking at the first one with a small viewing window.

Definately not mpeg1. .wmv seems to yield the best quality for file size for me. Premiere 6.5 gives you lots of options on window size and connection speed that you can tinker with, but a 1 minute clip should be a lot better quality at 5-10 mb.

wmv is about as good a compression scheme as there is out there, you're just setting the quality way too low. For a movie that length you'll e need to give it at least a 10 mb size to get any kind of quality. I could tell it was shot with a decent cam but it's just way too compressed.

I get good result using this method... http://www.dpcfilms.com/HowTo/articles/CompressingVideos/index.asp

Bump up the bit rate to 500-600kbps and you're golden.
