The database for the board is about 100 megs. I actually have TONS of storage....just no bandwidth to move it around.

It might be an idea to post the ed2k/bittorrent links for the videos so people can download them on p2p.

I noticed that you mention compressing the videos more. I suggested this to Big Tom about 6 months ago, after I compressed the intense rock 1 solo down to 9mb with barely any loss in quality. He dismissed it because "mpeg is the standard" :roll:

I don't know what Tom said.


I compressed them awhile ago....it was about a 50% reduction in size and ultimately, bandwidth required...if I remember right.

it's all about the quality:compression ratio...

Some of the original files were inefficient. For example, the IR-Solo had a stereo sound track, which only used the left side for the first half, and then half way through, it flipped to the right :? so it actually uses less bandwidth and improves the quality to convert the track to mono.

The main thing is the codec used. WMV is very good these days, although divx(and variations) is still better. When you look at bigger files, mpeg really lags behind.

The vids only work a few days a month due to massive bandwidth suckage.

Because...3 times now...people have said they could help....and in the end...3 times I've moved all the videos back because their bandwidth gets totally blown out of the water.

This way....once a month...I change the name of the directory...and boom...they're up or down. I don't have the time to have individual videos scattered all over the place.
