Video is a GO! 2012-04-15 15:09:17
Hey check out these two movies, they both have something in common:
STARBARIANS - Episode 1by HappyHarryThe Starbarians have landed...
Valentine's Day 2012by BarfQuestionTime travel, curry, and dinosaurs.
NOTE: Starbarians is by HappyHarry, my name appearing is a bug that was triggered by me hitting PUBLISH on his project. 'doh!
They were both uploaded as MP4 files and are playing in our new video player! Starbarians originally consisted of three SWFs, too big to compile as one file. HappyHarry used Swivel, software developed by Mike to perform the best-ever SWF to video conversions. It's full framerate, 1080p (try fullscreen mode) and it even merged his individual SWF files on the fly. Swivel is still in the testing phase but we'll be releasing it to the public when it's all polished up!
The MP4 upload feature is invite-only at the moment to avoid an all-out video dumpfest. The focus is on animated content and the occasional film with cool post-production, like if MindChamber ever makes his MindChamber movie. If you have an animation that doesn't work well as a traditional SWF, PM me.
Everyone else, enjoy the show! If the video doesn't work for you, let us know. For some reason Adblocker in Firefox might block it from loading so try turning that off if you have problems. We're looking into what could be causing that.
