    Slightly of the thread of this conversation but I am trying to publish short video files on my website.
    No problem publishing but the file sizes only allow about 2 minutes of video. any way I can compress AVI to gain more time/size clips?
    I use Windows Media Player to replay will WMP play any other format.

    Am guessing you have not tried the wmv format for your clips on the web ! -- You can downgrade the bitrate when you save the file to reduce the size of the uploaded one ! I find that streaming at 64kbp/s still gives an excellent web rendition.

    Thank so much for that info, no I had not tried WMV and was not aware that I could use this format. Cheers

    Here's a little script you can use to play it on your web Site

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <title>Movie Player ~ </title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">


    <body bgcolor="#1D1E55" text="#000000" link="#000000" vlink="#000000" alink="#000000">

    <object id="video" width="320" height="285" style="border: 6 outset #C9C7FE"
    <param name="ShowDisplay" value="0">
    <param name="ShowControls" value="1">
    <param name="AutoStart" value="1">
    <param name="AutoRewind" value="1">
    <param name="PlayCount" value="1">
    <param name="Appearance value="0 value=""">
    <param name="BorderStyle value="0 value=""">
    <param name="MovieWindowHeight" value="320">
    <param name="MovieWindowWidth" value="285">
    <param name="FileName" value="http:// your location/MovieTitle.wmv">
    <embed src="http:// yourlocation /MovieTitle.wmv">
    </embed> </object>


    Enjoy !

    I took the liberty of downloading your wmv you have up there and it's streaming at 232 kbp/s for a total duration of 51 seconds -1.35MB- !! I reduced your wmv stream to 120 kbp/s and it gave me 764Kb -- almost half of what you have up there !!

    After uploading it to my own site and looking at it , the rendition did not suffer that much to be noticeable ! and this would allow you if you have restriction from your webhost , to upload a 2 min wmv for the same space you are using now !

    Trust Me, the wmv from your site has now been removed ,trashed and will not be shown.

    Regards to All your Members !

    That sounds great, I downloaded a programme Magic video batch converter to convert from AVI to WMV does the further reduction require other software

    I used Windows Movie Maker in Windows XP to shrink it to the smaller size.

    Another solution for you if you have restrictions that do not permit you to upload LARGE files with premium quality for your web streaming would be to look at a few WebHost that will allow you 2Gigabytes of Upload -- email accounts for your members and lots more ! I noticed you had already a Domain name registered to you ~~smiles -- The transfer is FREE.

    Have a look at this one :- http://www.bluehost.com/

    It may fit your budget .
