Truly the perfect movie to premiere the new video format with!!

Will we be seeing some Newgrounds classics, like the Adam Phillips Dashkin movies, switched out into this new format so we can enjoy them in glorious 1080p full screen?


GAH!

Glad Newgrounds is pushing forward with the limits of Flash as always.

1080p is nice and all, hopefully there will be something less extravagant in the future for us Slower Speeded Internetters.

It's kinda weird.
I'm so used to going to a new tab to let the flash file load, then clicking play after 10-30 seconds.

Well I'm probably not going to use this, I'm going to stick to .swf for the meantime. Maybe if I get a computer that can run After Effects CS5 I'll learn it and start using video files but what ever.

The main reason I'm excited for this is cos we can finally enjoy stuff which has been done in After Effects at full HD quality :D

its damn awesome,
and Starbarians looked incredible
Im already breaking my lil music video into two flas because flash keeps farting. So yah video is the only way to go if you want to fbf and filter rape like I do ;3

and hopefully the video option will never go fully public, people just can't be trusted. Im guessing there will always be some kind of approval process to make sure its some form of allowable animation before anything goes live.

This is excellent. Now it'll be easier for me to upload my stop motion animation videos, since they require me to use a video editor to create them, not flash.

Seriously a big help.

How can I offer bronies respect if most of them abuse memes (due to popularity) and an over-saturation of ponies? How can I have sympathy for them?

This really needs a low quality function since people like me who don't have the fastest connection in the world would at least see the movie


Does anyone actually read these?

Well it is awesome that we're now getting new formats and the possibility of videos being accepted here on Newgrounds. Would love to see what filmmakers can bring to the table here, since they can probably get better attention here than YouTube since it is plagued with vlogs, review shows, and the occasional whiner.

So awesomeness for Newgrounds.

I need a quality button too, I've been waiting about 30 mins and it's half loaded. :3 Worth the wait for Starbarians, sure, but not for regular browsing.

I think most internet 1080p still has some kind of compression because I've never waited quite so long for a video before. I'm sure you guys can figure it out though.

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/593649
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.

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation (NATA) open round starts tomorrow (MONDAY)! If you have any interest in animation be sure to give it a shot. I'll update this post with a link when it goes live in the Animation Forum.

We've been having some other issues where the video simply never loads - that might be the problem you're experiencing. Starbarians is 88 megs which should be manageable for anyone with broadband. Slow computers running 1080p video is another issue though. I liked to think we were late enough to arrive with video that we wouldn't need to cater to all the smaller formats for slower computers / connections... But then I know mobile people especially will likely want smaller versions... BARF.

That happened to me when I first opened Starbarians, but I refreshed and the video loaded just fine.

I am having some serious problems with the Starbarians video. The audio in it is playing fine, but the video is jumping back and forth constantly, rendering it wholly unwatchable. Since I know I can't describe it accurately, I fired up CamStudio and recorded the first few seconds to show what I get in Firefox (with AdBlock) and Chrome (without AdBlock) when I try to watch it. Here it is (roughly 2.5MB).

Now, being the clever person that I am, I used Firefox to do some snooping and was able to download the mp4 file locally. When I play it here, both the audio and video are messed up. So I think it's the video file.


Deploy the... it's a yellow button... it's usually flashing... it makes the engines go... whoosh!

Please help fund my horror novel. I'll love you forever.

Most flash movies are missing progress bars. This would solve that problem, at the cost of higher file size, lower quality, frame rate, and inability to hide single frame easter eggs. It's a nice feature still. Looking forward to filter raped movies and 3D animations.

When you say that the video submissions will be on an invite-only basis, does that mean that it will run sort of like the Art Portal does, where approved people can approve of other people?

Then again, I'm not sure how this could work, unless 'unscouted' people uploaded their video work to their blogs and were discovered that way.

Either way, it will be neat to see how videos may be implemented into Newgrounds. I'd expect much higher standards than Youtube, of course, which as others are saying may increase some traffic to Newgrounds.

Best to keep this invite only forever. If live video is allowed, this place will just turn into a mini Youtube full of junk. Cover charge keeps the riff raff out, and making people post in flash format helps keep the portal solid animation and games like it always has been, allowing easy access to post videos will lead to an endless crapflood of little kids and idiots posting whatever they record on a camera all over the portal. Making formats easier just makes it easier for non artists to post the kind of stuff that's not wanted here.

The worst thing is, it potentially turns this place into a war for e-fame, as youtube is now to full for most people to get their foot in the door. With free video posting, every dick with a camera will post here and get all there non-Newgrounds friends and similar artists to flood this place and launch voting wars that will destroy good works here to promote utter crap. I don't want a bunch of people thinking they will be the next Fred or the big thing by posting moronic videos to Newgrounds thinking it will laucnh them somewhere. I seriously think free video posting could destroy Newgrounds.

Just saying.

Yeah, Mac really needs it more then the PC crowd do since they can export things nicely as .mov's anyway. Most of the pro animators I know use Macs and we kind of need an alternative to taking things into AE or Premier to export them.


DOUBLE POST! BAM! I thought that was fixed.
