Compression Killed The Video Star

SmithKris.gifPNME 2007 #51: Compression Killed The Video Star

You’ve shot your video, done all the post work to make your project come to life, and finally uploaded it to all the video sites. But now every media player makes it look like it was hit by a truck and your audio sounds like an international phone call. Let’s fix it! Compression of your project is key for the multitude of formats used online by YouTube, Revver, BlipTV, Brightcove. Veoh and the list goes on. Get the most out of your work by understanding compression, transcoding and codecs so that the viewer experiences your content as you envisioned. Instructor: Kris Smith of Palegroove Studios

    He later became the first black man to work for the New York City Subway as a motorman (train operator).
    After this he is eligible to register in private and public
    establishments. Only if this doesn’t work will the eye doctor suggest alternative treatment such as laser eye surgery.
