Proper way to upload Movie 2012-04-21 18:58:09 Reply

Hello,

I want to upload an animation. The animation is an FLV format.
But it's larger than 20MB. I can probably get it below 20MB.

I was hoping I can stream the video. Maybe using the FLVPlayback component.
All it needs is an "http" URL to a .flv file. But where would I host the .flv file?
Does newgrounds support any kind of streaming video?

I hate to embed the FLV.
1) There are no easy controls... to rewind and stuff
2) You need to preload the entire movie, before it can start playing.
3) You need to stay below 20MB.....

Newgrounds very recently introduced the option to upload videos in the movies portal, but at the moment it's invitation only so not everyone is allowed to upload videos yet.

I'm not sure if it accepts FLV files. I know it does accept .mp4 files at least.

You could try sending a PM to Tom Fulp and ask him whether you may upload your video.

"Hello, no they do not. what i suggest is the an flv file is a very generic and not an easy file to work with on new grounds. try and save it in another file format OR get a file converter"

Rules are rules, unless you email Tom.

You can submit a loader to Newgrounds if you want to load an external video file from a different host. Who that host is, is beyond me.

On another note, yes flv is an upload option for file types. oddly enough.

Thank you for your help. This answers my question.

Thanks to the rest of you as well :)
