I have a website with a lot of flash movies, showing 10s of clips in 480x270.
Trying to give the site a better layout, I want to make the flash movies larger, 720x 405. Which bitrate is optimal for that size? I am using a rather slow broadband, and it takes some time to load a file that is 800 kb. And the movie is not that great at that compression.
What do you think of quality vs loading time?
Shall I preload and have a loading message or show a stuttering movie the first time it plays?
