I am trying to find a solution to show some of my works online. I have this very graphic-intense animation short film that I would like to showcase on webpage or a blog (!). I encoded it from a DVD with ffmpegx. It is H624 mp4 video at 640x480 and the whole file is about 80 MB. The quality is
Tested on a PC here w/ a 8Mbit connection and it does indeed not load as fast as it probably should. I would seriously think about lowering the resolution to 480x360 or 320x240. The quality should still be very good and you could lower your bitrate to something like 1200Kbps or lower and have better loading results.
