No. Why we'll need to turn swfs into mp4? SWFs are snaller than mp4s. Also, some flash movies have Easter Eggs. we like to find.

Some flash movies might lose their charms by doing this.

I'm pretty sure not all flash movies will use the Mp4.

Sounds ok to me as long as we can choose between converting movies into mp4 or stayed in swf format.

You guys, Swivel will be available to everybody just to convert swf to mp4. Video on Newgrounds however will be very rare and only exclusive animators can use it.

But this is a flash portal, not a video portal. We're already getting youtube comments in the review section and this will just make it worse.

I'm not a great animator anyway and I don't think I'd be an exclusive animator. I make movies for fun only.

But what would happen if I win a reward with my movie. It would make me as an exclusive animator and turn my movie into mp4. That would make me angry about it.

Nothing seems to happen when I try to play these. I'm presuming its supposed to buffer or something right? I'm getting nothing anyway even with my adblock turned off but guess there's bound to be a few kinks since its new and all

For those of you who don't understand, this is a serious inovation for NG, which was strictly .swf format for video submissions for the longest time.

This will increase the versatility of NG over time, allowing animators who use other programs besides flash to perhaps submit more content.

While videos are still a rarity on NG (some have made it through), the MP4 format will help NG compete with websites like youtube who have a wide range of formats that can be submitted.

THE FLASH PORTAL IS NO LONGER JUST FOR FLASH!!!

Pardon...

I don't see the logic of just having flash and not having anything else, it's just a step backward. If New Grounds started with flash, that's fine, but don't get stuck in the past with just flash.

Since there are plenty of more things in this site besides flash, then it shouldn't be called a "Flash Portal" if flash is not the only thing it's used for movies.

It's called a MOVIE portal for a reason, and it's to watch movies either it's flash or not. Let go of the past, this is a step forward.

Well, I betcha if you make something that is worthy of vid Tom would be happy to let you upload by mp4.

Really cool, if you ever decide to make it public to every user, maybe just make the threshold higher for videos being blammed. Like it gets blammed if it comes out of judgement if it has as score lower than 3.5, maybe higher.

Tom sed dis: If the video doesn't work for you, let us know.

Is anyone else having an issue with fading on the new player? It seems llike anything that's moving has a delayed-fade-kinda thing going on, where the moving parts from fframe to frame don't go completely away before the next part comes in so you can see like 3 frames wirth of animation faded together in the moving areas. It's most noticeable with bigger movements.

Y'know how in a movie, where the bottle of antidote gets thrown or dropped, and everything switches to a slow-mo fade, where you get everyone watching the bottle, and it is at the top of the screen, then fades to the middle of the screen, and then fades to the bottom while someone yells "N-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o..." in a real deep, slow motion voice. It's just like that with anything that plays in the new player.

I took a screen print. I also found subliminal messages. I don't know what they mean. ;)

This sounds nifty

Hope it works out for the best cant wait to see how it is when active.

It runs with framerate issues but it's acceptable so far. Also if it lags enough the audio de-syncs, leading to some awkward lip syncing.

I'm having the same problem that several others on here are having. Audio works, but my video is BLACK. All black, all the time. I've tried four browsers with the same results.

I'm running a relatively new Asus laptop with Win7. If anyone wants my specs, PM me and they're yours.

I hope this gets worked out soon, because it seems I'm missing out on several videos now.

I'm not gonna shuffle through 10+ pages to look if someone's asked this, but by films with post-production do you mean vfx shorts? As I'm an amateur director and producer this new feature has caught my eye.

Personaly I hope this is a small step towards a open video portal (purhapes with strict limits on uploads to stop a flood)

I know many might say "thats what youtube is for", but youtube is terrible at finding new content.
Newgrounds, by comparison has probably the best content filtering system on the net - completely democratic yet (lets face it) 90% crap goes in and the 10% good stuff floats to the top.
You tube, by comparison, if you dont know what your looking for its hard to find any good shorts or shows.

Theres alternatives like Blip.tv , of course, which does a good job of keeping the quality high - but their search and promotions are 100% done by staff. Its very much a dictatorship.

Newgrounds (imho) would be the best of both worlds, imho.
