video for web
I have a question for any who are familiar with posting animation on the web. I have a few maya playblasts that I compressed in quicktime. I got the file size down really low, but I found that on some computers, the browser window will crash halfway through the download. Also, I have a project I did in college, that is almost seven gigs. When I compress it, what codec should I use to get the best video and sound quality with a relatively low file size? I decided to go quicktime because it is cross platform and almost everyone has a quicktime player. However, I noticed that some people are using mpeg4 as their format, and the video and sound are very clear. Is mpeg4 cross platform and does it behave better than quicktime? Can it play in its own window? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm a newbie to web posting.
