    Hello:

    I have a general question. I have been struggling for weeks to get
    video sermons from church to upload.
    I use Ulead Videostudio, will be getting a Datavideo DAC-100 soon for
    DV capture to replace the countless video capture cards I've tried.
    My question is: how can I get a movie, once completed, saved in a
    format suitable for watching on our website for a range of 56K to
    cable modem users?
    I have tried several codecs and Videostudio freezes up at about 98%.
    The resulting fle is loadable on an WM Player but you can't advance
    the play bar forward like a streaming video should.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Scott

  2. Are you putting it on a streaming server?
    Are you implying that you are using WMV?
    (Hint: precise details are far preferable to
    reading between the lines.)

    Real makes a decent Media server called Helix. The basic version is free
    if you are looking for a media server. You need a specific server, not
    just a web site on an HTTP server someplace to be able to stream video or
    audio.

    If you have a streaming server available and running, try either the free
    Windows Media Encoder and selecting a streaming format or download the
    Real Producer Basic and do the same.

    Either way, save out the final version as an AVI (DV format) file. Close
    your editor and fire up the encoderof choice. Use the AVI as the base
    file and in the case of RealMedia, select Sure Stream. Pick out your
    target audiences and encode. Real Basic Encoder allows you to select up
    to 3 audience rates.

    See my web site for some additional info. I have been known to build a
    few streaming servers.

    Yes it is a streaming server, and yes it is Windows MEdia (WMV) format.
