|ugh! the Half-Life 2: Aftermath Trailer is 125 megs for only 34seconds of uncompressed DV-PCM ? thats crazy! besides its just a 34s trailer of some girl cowering in a cell with stalkers. |
i did a test with virtualdub-mpeg2 mod, using xvid & lamemp3 encoder codec, the file shrank down to 20megs. the quality was good.
My settings for xvid where :
unrestricted, 2 pass, used "filesize" to set bitrate automatically (went for a 20480kb filesize). the rest are set to xvid default. As for audio, i used lame encoder in vdubmpeg2 @ 192kbps.
The file was much smaller yet played the same and only took me 3mins to accomplish both encoding passes!
best to just replace it with an xvid version. its too big just for those measly 34seconds (10 of wich are just game title and valve logo!) . tell valve to compress it with xvid next time so we dont waste our time downloading huge crap like this.
And no im not on 56kmodem but it still took me 10mins to dl this 30sec video. Not worth our time.

|125megs? definently wasnt when i downloaded it, and it still isnt, being 47.34 mb, even 4.94 mb, so i have no idea what you're talking about but ok, i'm on 26.4k connection right now, i downloaded it, there's no way it was 125mb |
