HD content to the web
on Jan 24, 2009 at 11:58:02 am

Hi, this is my first post and although I've done some searching I apologise if this topic has already been covered.

I have 7mins of HD footage (1920x1080 50i PAL) which I want to post to the web using this HD web player

http://components.earthscienceagency.com/components/phantom/

I think the resoltion will be something like 640x360 but I'd really appreciate some advice or pointers on compression. I use FCP V6 and I'm trying to learn compressor but whilst the manual tells you what the software does, it's not very helpful on offering good practice or advice.

I'm a bit of a newbie so any help welcome.

Many thanks in advance from rainy London.

Hi from another Londoner!

This topic has been covered a fair bit in this forum. Do a search for 'compressor', which will bring up quite a few posts about transcoding HD footage down to SD resolutions.

Browsing through the post, you should learn loads

Here's something specific outside the forum:

Another place for good tips is http://www.kenstone.net.

Have you looked at this free player?: http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flv-player/


Please come back with any specific issues you have.

that's a great help, thanks. I also bought a book called Real World Video Compression which judging from the index seems to cover what I need, All in all I think I'm covered. Many thanks.
