    Hi all. I need help with my Central Line videos. I can do 2 things. High Res and Big download size or Low Res and Small download size. Please view via links below. Both are WMV format. This video is over 2 mins long so its quite big, others will be 30 secs - 2.5 mins, so 12 MB is maximum.

    High Res Video, 10 MB approx -

    http://bveheights.uk.to/East Acton to White City High Res.wmv

    Low Res Video, 4 MB approx -

    http://bveheights.uk.to/East Acton to White City Low Res.wmv

    Thanks, David :mrgreen:

    EDIT: Thanks to all who "polled" and gave comments. I have decided to go with a med - high res, download sizes are between 3 and 7 MB, depending on the length of the video.

    I would go for High Res although it will take longer to download the quality is far better than the low res.

    Thanks. Just thought though :x 10 MB x (at least) 25 videos, 250 MB :shock: Maybe a medium Res or a higher on the longer videos and a med on the shorter?

    Definitely higher res for me. It's better to have to download a big file but be able to watch the video than a smaller download but the quality's so low it's pretty much useless.

    As long as the background music isn't unsuitable IMO.

    I have an Idea, CRAZY FROG! Ring ding ding ding, na, ne, na, na, (Gunshots in backround!) :D

    Seriously: I can't think of any and I can't be bothered to edit them for a third time. They'll have to do.

    Hmmm.... Then if there's no train sound, then maybe no sound would be better to reduce the download size... ;)

    If you want 'uber' high quality, you could always pay for hosting from us (and then you can get good speeds too :P)
