Just to say the in-car video is done, it's just a question of how I host it. The file is 187MB in size. Quality is 640x480 @ 30FPS, duration is 12mins.

In the Video I take Club corner around 100mph, and Bridge complex at 90mph.

Hopefully I may have some hosting sorted by tomorrow, and people can watch this video.

Dude... Make it smaller... 352x288 will do, it doesn't have to be HDTV spanking quality! :Cool2:
If people like it and want it in better quality, make a DVD.

I would host it when it's smaller but I used 2Gb of my bandwidth in about 6 hours when I hosted my 0-60 videos, that thing will just completely piss my ISP off! :lmao:

Goonas may be able to help!!
I can't host it, the file is jsut too big and will be grabbed too quickly, i.e. making my domain take up more than the % allowance on the shared server and probably end up with my account suspended. :(

make it 320x240, lower the frame rate to 24 or 25 ... and it'll go down to about 30-50meg depending on rates :up:

... I'd be happy to do that and host it for you? send me a disc with it on or give me a one time download link?

It's an option :up:

cheers

It's ok, I have 3 FTP accounts, i'm going to upload to all 3 and mirror it. The footage should be available from 10pm tonight. I'll reduce the quality as a last resort.

Steve, i used MicroSoft movie maker thats built into XP. I'm on 64bit Pro but should be in all versions.

That's alright for those on broadband! There are still people on dial-up/ISDN (about 45% of the population last I saw) and there's no way I'm going to have my PC sat there all night downloading for 12 minutes worth of video. :eh

I've had huge video's off the net like that and tbh, they're not much better than the smaller ones, for the sake of a bit of quality loss vs a huge file-size difference... :Cool2:

That was Mark, however I would not call him that in person :eh When I realised Mark was in front I was prepared for a crazy race with my Ecotec trying to hold onto back of him. I followed Mark for maybe half a lap, I pushed into a couple of corners hoping he take the bait :p .

Mark kindly waved me past, then I started overtaking cars. From the speed of other cars I was certain we were under yellow, and was expecting to be black flagged.

Near the end of the session Mark did begin to catch, and went past when I slowed for what I thought was my in-lap.
