uploading AVI file doesn't work Feb. 13th, 2013 @ 03:54 PM Reply

I have a problem uploading an avi file on Newgrounds.
For some reason I can't see the preview of my video, it only keeps loading,
even when the bar reaches the end of the video player.
Converting SWF files don't work either cause for some reason the quality of the SWF file is worse than the AVI file

Is there a different way to upload my avi file without compressing it?

Newgrounds doesn't accept AVI files, but it does accept MP4s. If you don't have permission on your account to upload MP4s, PM Tom Fulp.

You may convert your swf to MP4 using the excellent tool Swivel.

Just to add, if you're looking for a good program to convert from avi to mp4, avidemux does a great job (it's free, open source). It can easily compress the file at the same time; I find quantiser 8 works well for keeping the quality pretty much identical while drastically cutting own on filesize. A 1,9GB avi file will go down to at least less than a GB.

Can you please say if this video is working or not .
Because it seems to have a 3/5 stars.
Which would be odd if it doesn't work.

How are you creating these videos? Can you use some other format? Try mp4 if you can. Whatever you're using is creating odd videos that don't work in the video player.

Actually, we now support:

.mp4
.mov
.avi
.m4v
.ogg
.ogv
.wmv
.mkv
.webm
.flv

For now, if the video format is anything other than mp4, the file won't play until it's re-encoded. We're working on updating the site to make this process less confusing.

I am having trouble converting them

My avi file is currently the highest quality i can get.
The swv file is a lot worse, so is the mov file.
Is there an easy way to convert an avi into a mp4 or svw?
