does it show a server code 0? if so just keep trying it will eventuality go through

@frisa: please compress the files before you upload them. there are enough websites where you can do this (for free).
maybe this can solve your problem

frisa said:

Alright, I try both. thanks

if you have trouble just send the file to me via anonfiles.com i will compress it professionally and make it compatable with this site. (with out losing quality) and if you want i can post it for you or send it back to you so you can post. whatever flouts your boat.

Please don't compress videos before you upload them. They were already compressed when you got them, and adding another generation of loss by compressing them again lowers the quality noticeably. If a video is above the size limit, just compress it enough to get it under. This will ensure that our videos are as high quality as possible.

Now that's a hell of an offer. Anyone would be wise to take it.

That is wrong. im talking about the FILESIZE, not the dimensions.
there are many websites/tools where you can compress the video, without touching the dimensions/quality.

smaller filesize, but same quality.
thats btw, better for our page

tbh i prefer not to compress but if its necessary, then sure.

and why?
the quality is the same like before. only the filesize is smaller.
and this is better for the user here and for the website.

well the site supports 1gb files. so its not that big of a deal imo. the main reason is re compressing doesnt lose a small amount of quality even if done professionally. you might not be able to notice it but its there. but in this case it sounds like the file is unsupported so i would be to be converted to h264 anyways

im compressing videos since years, without any loss of quality. maybe you have used the wrong website!?
1 gb is allowed, fine. but how long must we wait until atf is full?

+ a compressed video is loading much faster.

i use handbrake to convert and compress i dont use websites. and true, if you have slow internet but most people dont. i could take the 300mb video and get it down to 50mb with little to no quality loss.

i only use websites and i have good experience with them.
on lolicit, we have had the problem: to many uploads, nothing compressed. the website was nearly full (upload stop for everyone).
hope, that we not get such a problem here.

compressing files is (my opinion) always good. faster uploads, faster loading, space saved on atf.

as long as its done right sure. but most people dont have the computer power or knowledge or how to properly compress files. the other reason i dont like changing a file is it changes its md5 signature which mean its just another copy to get on the internet that further obscures the original source. like for example try revers searching a image and see how many of them come up. and have no idea what version is the original and hasnt been re saved upscsaled down scaled many times over.

im not a computer expert.
but: atf can see if the new upload is a duplicate or not, even when the file is compressed.
same with other websites. compressing the file dont change to much, that the site cant find the original.

"as long as its done right sure. but most people dont have the computer power or knowledge"
the biggest problem, correct.
but some websites are so user friendly, even a child can use them ^^

Not to put too fine a point on it, but everything you've said in this thread is objectively incorrect. You may not notice the quality loss you're causing when you recompress these videos, but it's happening, regardless of resolution. I can't stop you from doing it, but for what it's worth, I strongly discourage it. I'd be happy to teach you the hows and whys of video compression if you'd like, as I actually am an expert in this field.

same here. ive got many years on my belt. and im sure no website is going to put the server power for best results. it takes time and energy to a good compression.

so its best not to but if necessary like an unsupported format than yes.

an "expert", aha.
first mixed up compressing with down scaling.
now: just saying other people are wrong, without checking it.
oh man...

i have never talked about a "recompress".
why dont you try it? pick a video from the web, try different levels of compression.

if you have problems to find a good website, i can show you 2 good pages

Eyyy that's what's up, I knew there was something about the way you think that clicked with me

Dude, we're both experts here, and we're both telling you what we already know from years of education and professional experience. Like I said, I'll happily teach you about it if you want to know. And you're still free to keep doing whatever you want to the videos you upload! But you can do better, if you want to. So if you are more interested in actually being correct than feeling like you're right, just ask.

i have met enough self called "experts" so im a little bit worried when i hear the e-word.
so you are working in the it branch?

as i said: im using some good websites, since years. and i have made good experience with them.
if you think your software is better, , im fine with it.
we can try/check it out ^^

you keep mention websites. what websites? handbrake is well known and one of the best heck imo its better than premier encoder.

i have never tried a software, so i "focus" on web services...

https://video.online-convert.com/de/umwandeln-in-mp4 (file limit 100 mb, the only bad thing). you can choose the lv of compression
https://www.freeconvert.com/video-compressor (file limit 1gb, strongest compression)
have used clideo too, but they add a watermark on every video :(

Idk about cogs but my profession is in the video field. And cogs is right, handbrake is incredible. Those websites you posted basically do the same thing as handbrake, but they give you less control and more restrictions. Handbrake has no limits and should work faster.

Check it out at https://handbrake.fr.

And here's an easy guide on how to use it: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.5.0/introduction/quick-start.html

If you have anymore questions, let us know!

hm, it does the same as the posted websites. only more options (which make it more complicated).
i guess it takes some time and training to use this software.

i'll make it easy for you.
summary: click the web optimized box.
dimensions: (unless it 4k these setting are fine by default)
filters: turn all these off. (unless you have interlaced videos) use staxrip for deinterlacing
audio: the default audio is ok. acc and ac3 is suported by the site. set bitrate to 192 or more on ac3
subtitles and chapters: delete these.

video:
framerate. set to constant and 30 to same as source
encoder present. set as slow as your computer can handle (dont go above medium) the slower the better the compression and quality.
constant quality. set between 21 to 14 this is where you can experiment your looking for 3500mbps or more for 1080p
encoder profile. set to high

Didn't think this thread was still active, I've just been doing handbrake at default settings. It makes things easier to upload and I am kind of worried about the data usage since it adds up. I haven't really seen any differences between the compressed and original, so I hope my uploads were ok. I did learn more from this thread though, also thanks for offering DontTouchMyCogs to help upload the files.

You're in one of those places with a metered internet connection huh? Sorry to hear that, it must be frustrating. I hope your infrastructure rises out of the third world soon.
