alright, to kick off the addition of videos to emuforums...post your Youtube profile link! (or any other video uploading site that lets you have a profile).

here's mine, enjoy the selection of stupid crap and juggling videos i've created in the last few years.

Btw, anyone read about Google trying to take over YouTube? I got the feeling google is run by two grey labrats, NARF.

Link to the article

Hushy, or anyone else, I'd like to know what the restrictions are when uploading videos, like compression, sound quality, resolution and length of the video. It might be a nice spot to upload my metal videos especially with Industrian missing in action atm.

nice profile Guyver, i like your....leaves :p

good question Cid, glad you asked. as the old adage goes, garbage in, garbage out. the better quality you put in, the better quality comes out. the limits are 10 minutes/100mb. videos like this one or this one i created with Xvid at 1500kbs and a wav file sent to mp3 (not a transcode!). listen to the sound, pretty good eh? and the video is pretty good quality. then you have a video like this one where it's still Xvid 1500, but all the songs went from MP3 --> WAV (in premiere)-->MP3 (virtual dub)-->youtube. so the audio quality suffers.

so what does that mean? i recommend that your uploaded video uses Xvid between 1000 and 1500kbps (and I use 640x480), and mp3 that came from an original source.

this is what Youtube has to say about it:

* Uploads will usually take 1-5 minutes per MB on a high-speed connection.
* Converting your video takes a few minutes; you can add more info or upload more videos while it's processing.
* Videos are limited to 10 minutes (unless you're a Director) and 100 MB.
* Videos saved with the following settings convert the best:
o MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format
o 320x240 resolution
o MP3 audio
PS. no one has any self created videos? just me? :(

Thanks for the info Hushy, I am glad I can upload my videos at the quality I want others to see them. I would've hated if I had to resize them to 320x240 with bad compression. I think I will stick with the regular 512kbs DivX video / 128kbs mp3, which I have always used. It will result in ~30 mb per video so that Miretank can watch them as well. So yeah, you will get to see original footage by Cid ;)

I take it that with Transcode you mean making a new MP3 from an existing MP3 file? If so, I avoid it as much as possible because it sounds horrible.

Oh, and hereby I request this thread to be stickified.

i was thinking about making it sticky. i probably will, gotta have at least one stickified video thread.

transcoding mp3s on their own doesn't sound so bad. some guy had a thread on hydrogenaudio where he compared the wav to a converted mp3 to an eighth generation transcode...and apparently the results were remarkable (not as bad as you'd think). i'm gonna make my own test one of these days with ogg to mp3 and to other things. for some reason though, transcoded mp3s sound AWFUL on youtube, i have no idea why. all of my first gen mp3s (ones that were original mp3s in the avi's that i uploaded) sound better than my second gen ones (mp3s that were encoded to mp3s that were uploaded to youtube).

Well the only experience I have is that I have made CBR 128kbs MP3 from some VBR MP3 source files, and that is something I advice against.

depends on when you encoded them. you'd be surprised where technology has gotten. i went on my sister's computer to find some Tool rips i made a few years back, so i listened to them and they were atrocious; come to find out they were 96kbps MP3. fast forward to last week, did an ABX test involving Q0 (64kbps) Ogg and lossless and, well...that's a story for another thread or IRC or MSN but suffice to say, i was blown away.
