Digital Rapids Stream over Squeeze 4.5
on Feb 22, 2008 at 1:50:09 am

As our client's expectations for interactive video increase, I am finding that Squeeze 4.5 may not be equipped to serve our needs (in terms of quality). I know that many here are very happy with Squeeze (as am I in certain instances) so this is not a criticism of the application.

That said, I have found that we have the Digital Rapids Stream v2.3 software installed on a (now unused) encoding station. I believe this was purchased for real time encoding from SD tape, but I would need just for converting uncompressed quicktimes and .avi files to .wmv and/or Flash 9 .flv. Anyone have any experience with this system or know of any online tutorials? So far I haven't found much online on in its help files as it relates to our immediate needs. Thanks!

I know it very well and use it daily, if I were you I seek the help of some professional services rather than some ad-hoc tips over an internet forum.

Thanks. Do you mean professional help in using the Digital Rapids system or professional help for the compression itself?

We'll only need the DR Stream to convert uncompressed quicktimes into Flash 8 flv files (for the time being). Used properly how does its output quality compare to Squeeze?

Possibly help with both, depending on your knowledge of using the system with files rather than off tape.

I've not done a side-by-side with Squeeze.

DR because of the hardware encoder is a better solution than squeeze. I have both, plus a bunch more.. but if you do not need a capture box and just a render box i'd suggest Rhozet. Render farm's are the way to go, plus Rhozet will actually address your issues, they are a good company.. and i dont work for them..
