Does anyone out there know how to upload and stream video ? I have an interesting short film made by James Mcdonald On DVD but have no idea ( and at present have no time to research and upload myself ) how to get this on the web for all to see.

As well as the interesting footage, James' viewpoint of Kernow's struggle is very interesting.

If you know how , I will get the DVD to you

Thanks.

Graham.

I can set it up for you Graham, though it depends what domain you want it on. Did you want it on a site of yours or just anywhere on the net as long as you can create a link to play and view it from? I could put it on the TINC site quite easily, probably today, if that's any help..

Just a thought.. Is James Mcdonald happy to have his DVD online available to everyone, or are there copyright issues here?

Is the DVD available for sale, if so how much and where from?

Ok, I managed to create a video stream from the DVD. The quality is nowhere near as good as the DVD as I've had to reduce the size dramatically to make it viable for the web - the original was nearly 1000 meg and I've now got it down to 52 meg. I couldn't put it on my usual server as it's over the single file size limit, so I've put it on my high speed server which I pay bandwidth costs for. Because of this I've limited the number of viewings per PC to two. Bear this in mind; you can only watch it twice.

Anyway it's at http://www.thisisnotcornwall.co.uk/video.htm

You may be asked to install a plug-in to view it. I've not used this software that often so let me know if you have any problems with it..

Which plug-in?



The software is Photodex proshow presenter; it's their plug-in. The software plays files that have their own file extensions .px and as far as I know it requires the plug-in to view it. The reason is that the software allows you to stream video without making the file available to download and keep. Stops people being able to re-distribute your video..

Is that a Windows-only plugin? :-(

As far as I know. Are you on a Mac? I've not tried the software on Safari.

I though the video painted a rather forlorn image of Cornwall. I was suprised though at the small number of votes involved in the local Penzance election, a few hundred votes away from the three main parties to MK and they would have won.
