    Your 5 minute video is only 70 megs. Do you think that's large? Cause it isn't. That's about the size an MP4 of that length will be.
    it is an mp4...

    That is my point. Your other post made it sound like you wanted it even smaller. That's not really gonna happen without sacrificing quality.
    It's recorded at 1080i...this is just fucking weird, here

    Which is why deinterlacing is going to help (You'd have better luck googling it. I haven't had to do it myself). Computer monitors are progressive scan.

    I'm looking at this avidemux program and I guess I don't really get it. Are you recording in mp4? Because what you want to do is record in the highest quality format possible then encode it into an mp4.

    To be honest anything after this point I'm not sure how much help I can be. I've never used a capture card or this particular editing program. Merely Fraps to record games off my PC and then edited in WMM or Premiere.

    okay well the output formats on my hd-pvr are either TS, MT2S or MP4, the first two being formats I've literally never heard of

    anyways I'm de-interlacing the video in handbrake right now and I'll re-transcode. I can make the video a lot bigger if you think the video quality necessitates that

    I'm just wondering what a good "rule of thumb" is for my videos, how many megs per ten minutes I should be aiming for. On my end, it's fine- just picked up a 2 TB harddrive to store these things so not a big deal- but I wanted to have a size so my viewers could like, see it and/or download it without it wrecking their connection or something

    Why'd you have to put the guy on it?

    It feels appropriate.

    But the last LP anyone wants to see these days is an IWBTG lp (No offense, Josh).

    None taken, Adus. :P

    I made the thing before I was aware of the glut of IWBTG LPs, and was actually asked to do it as a LP by none other than Helloween in the original thread!

    Yeah this I need to work on. I swear a lot in general (was in the army. what can I say) but I was probably doing it a bit too much

    Go to dashboard, then click episodes, then click on the video you want. Scroll down and the download link is listed right next to "source".

    Well, that's where you as a creator find the link, anyway.

    okay so I deinterlaced, and transcoded with a three-pass this time around, and it's still barely 70 megs but it looks a lot better. Reuploading, if you could Adus tell me if the picture quality is better/worse that'd be great

    Looks much better. Not perfect but that's most likely due to Viddler's FLV encoding being shit. I see some distortion here and there so I can't say for sure.

    okay so I'm uploading to blip as we speak

    to regard your commentary criticisms Adus:

    yeah, I intend for Alan Wake to be pretty informative, I intend to do a 100% manuscript Nightmare run (basically it shows all of the plot), and my tone in the actual LP will be much, much more descriptive of the game (since Alan Wake is a game I'm, like, pretty good at) , and most importantly i'm bringing along a friend to co-comment on the LP with me. he's a really funny as hell dude irl and we've known each other for years so the LP should be better because of it. also i know I can't carry an LP by myself, I'm frankly not that funny irl

    plus henroid gets to see how [strike]horrible of a mistake he made[/strike] awesome of a co-commentator I can be! :)

    also here's the blip link

    Watched your test video Rent, brb, alerting Retsupurae.





    No, I'm only joking, you have a decent LP voice, and I understand that this is just a test. It'll be interesting to hear you in informative mode. Needless to say 'HOLY SHIT THIS IS WACKY' mode doesn't suit you. Beyond Sir Ron I can't think of anyone it suits.

    Also, since Henroid asked before, Spoony, or 'The Spoony One' is a guy who makes gaming, movie, wrestling, etc, etc review videos on his website The Spoony Experiment. He's a big pop culture lover who is pretty damn funny, but he's also fiercely confident in his own opinions. His FF VIII videos (and now FF X) are a good example of this.

    As far as LPs go, he's done stuff like Swat 4, Phantasmagoria 2 and Ripper.

    I listened to a few seconds of the video Rent and your mic kinda has a slight crackle to it, and your voice is sorta sounding... I don't know how to describe it, like it's hollow. Are you able to adjust bass / treble pickup on the mic?

    blip is ass, I couldn't watch the vid at all, the picture was lagging too much. I did download it though and thought it was very watchable, the image and sound quality are spot on.

    I only really noticed the swearing because you said "fucking" a lot, nothing wrong with a lot of swearing imo as long as you throw in some variation. I'm not talking Josh levels of variation, but as long as you aren't just repeating the same word again and again it will be a whole lot better. I actually need to take my own advice on this too, but I'm too busy concentrating on keeping the racism and bigotry out of my vids that the swearing is an after thought......:D

    If I do it, it won't be this semester. I've got 8 AM - 8 PM classes MWF. Work on TR from 9 AM - 5 PM, with rehearsals for my band on Thursdays at 6 - 10 PM.

    Besides, the next LP I was thinking about was The Path.

    hey josh, what format do you use to upload shit to blip? I'm using mp4 and blip's shit flv converter never converts my shit right so blip's essentially a dead link for non-download viewing

    I'm still gonna upload there just so there's a source that can be downloaded easily but blip's really giving me the runaround when it comes to streaming the video and i'm wondering what i can do to reduce the pain

    When using Blip, rename the .mp4 to a .flv by renaming the file extension. Upload that.

    Why would you ever LP The Path? Nothing happens in it except for the girls getting raped or killed. There is nothing about it that can be LP'd. The only possible thing you could do is show off all the extra items for the characters for extra rooms at the end. And that just translates to more time of you walking around in the forest doing nothing until you find a brick wall or bathtub so you can go get raped.

    I guess it would be different here because we don't have as many posters as SA does. Because if someone did The Path on SA it would just become a thread full of people arguing about whether the game is actually implying rape, if it's art, if the rape is art, and a whole bunch of other similarly horrible posts. I'm sure you'll get plenty of that in youtube comments though from RapeApologist69 and DressinDatWay420. So yeah you might want to disable comments.
