I'm building a Chinese course with 20 video lessons (created in after effects) 30 min each.
Programmer will build html menu to control the videos from a DVD-rom in the customers computer.
The video is 1280*720 25fps square pixels.
My questions are:
1. What is the best rendering for the videos- format: flv? h.264? or any other format? And what about the kbps for reading from the dvd rom?
I want it to work on windows and mac.
2. I want to be sure that the videos will be loaded from the DVD-rom (using a player in the html page) quickly and smoothly, and of course will look good. Each file when I render it as wmv file, 1280*720, 3700 kbps,is about 300 MB and it looks great this way. Is this size a problem? Will it take long time to load it from the dvd rom (as flv, or h.264), or it works just like loading from the hard-drive? And will the customers will be able to seek in the video immediately (again in the way you can do it when you watch a video from the hard-drive or o YouTube)
What is the best solution? So this product will work on every simple computer, with low requirements.
