Compressing for the Web
on Sep 14, 2008 at 10:55:07 pm

Hey there,

I'm compressing DVCPRO 720p60p to a web file for my website. I'm still pretty new with compressor and dont' know if I should use Quicktime 7 H.264 Streaming or Web Videocast.

What would be the best to use? And also I'd like to know what's the difference!

Thanks everyone

Simply put,

Streaming files are delivered from a dedicated streaming server as RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) where as 'web' files are delivered just like any other file over the web from a bog-standard web server as HTTP, this type of delivery is also known as progressive download.

On most cases you'll want a standard HTTP web download file.

Please post back saying what solved your problem. It could help others, and saying 'thanks' is free!
