    I have a TON of videos of hackers/trollers/griefers, etc. and I heard that you can compress videos to make the upload process faster. I searched online but it would be easier if someone who has experience could explain and hopefully simplify it. If you know anyone that might have some experience, please tag them in this thread :)

    I use quite an efficient setup.

    Links:
    http://www.virtualdub.org/download.html
    https://www.xvid.org/download/

    Here it is step by step:
    1. Record hacker.
    2. Open editing software (I personally use VirtualDub, it is free and quite easy to use.
    3. Open video file (https://www.dropbox.com/s/6s6bvfbx7q2h7vp/VD 1.png?dl=0)
    4. Then cut the video to where the hacker is, use these buttons (https://www.dropbox.com/s/mf3h5oafr1t728b/VD 2.PNG?dl=0)
    5. Then go to the Video tab on the top and then click Compression...
    6. A tab should pop up like this (https://www.dropbox.com/s/4kyfaz0znwgfpym/VD 3.PNG?dl=0)
    7. Then click the Xvid MPEG-4 Codec.
    8. Then Save the video as AVI (F7)
    9. Wait for the rendering to finish then upload your file to youtube. It should be a lot faster now.
    Any trouble with this then either message me on the forums or just on here.

    What's the difference between MP4 and AVI files?

    My other advisor says that a program called Handbreak is better than Xvid.... Is that right?

    I used a program called Handbrake, it doesn't change the quality in any way, I couldn't see a difference anyway. But changes the format from a .mov into a .mp4 I think? I'm not sure been a while since I've used it :p That's worth looking at though

    Compressing Videos is like putting it together in one video. (you'll see what I mean)
    When you have a RAW video clip of a hacker or such, you have 2 audio streams, 1 FULL QUALITY video clip and It also keeps track of things such as FPS at the time and such. This is why it holds such a lot of memory, once it's compressed it's all in the one place, it doesn't keep track of fps, there is 1 audio stream and 1 cut quality video. If you look at it like this it's easier to understand.
    Personally I use Handbrake, it's fast and it works, you can change the memory of the video to a complete HALF of what it has and don't lose a single pixel in quality.
    [​IMG]
    Here's Handbrake, first you drag in the video clip.
    • 1. goto The Tick Boxes near the top as color coded here, Tick, Web Optimized. This will crop the last drops of memory.
    • 2. Go onto the video tab underneath the tick boxes and Underneath the Quality text change the constant quality to 25, this is the most you can change it by without losing too much quality, but it certainly does take a LOT of memory away.
    • 3. Select your destination of folder where the NEW video file will go. Easy as.
    • 4. Click Start!
    You should find the new video in the folder you defined.

    Hope this helped and wasn't too over explanatory but it works for me all the time, I don't have the greatest internet, primarily why i don't bust as many hackers as I should, but this speeds up the process a lot and I hope it works for you too.
    Thanks ;)

    Is this the correct website? https://handbrake.fr/news.php
    I downloaded it, but it says that the publisher is unknown...is that correct?
    I scanned it with Kapersky, no threats came up

    that is the correct website.
    Most applications these days don't have publishers attached to them, due to the publishers making many versions of them.
    It's not a threat.
