View Full Version : Problem with the new video

06-12-2001, 08:02 PM
I have 56k and I download it by right clicking and pushing save target and when i watched it it was really bad quality. Why is that? and I have a very good computer and I have the newly updated windows media player.
Does everybody has this problem?

Well of course it looks bad. How do you expect them to cram 5 minutes of video into a 1.3mb file? :rolleyes: Go dl the hi res version if the low res isn't good enough for you.

06-12-2001, 08:13 PM
its the exact same quality.I couldnt find a difference between them. My opinion i really couldnt see anything. If anybody saw or has a very good quality one or that is good or he knows how to fix it tell me.

06-12-2001, 08:15 PM
forget it the high res is better. But still i wish it was quicktime and that has quality of trailers or just good.
ps: why didnt they ask abot editing

It would be like 25mb if they made it trailer quality. They didn't ask about editing because the interviewer didn't even know the name of the game. lol. :D

06-12-2001, 08:25 PM
so what if that was 25 megs and it was trailer quality I would defintitly download it. Is it possible to changle that high-res file to a trailer quality file?

06-12-2001, 08:25 PM

What do you mean, "so what" most people, "with 56k connections" don't want to spend 3 hours of there time dling something.

How the hell do you propose someone change a poor quality video into a high quality video?
It's like turning toast back into bread. :p

This isn't a trailer... this is a video made with a (probably cheap) camera from a computer monitor. It is better quality than I expected.

Huh? Just right click and select "Save Target As..." or use a 3rd party program to download it like GetRight.

Indy, I spent ALL night downloading the Obiwan trailer (for the xbox) because my connection is only 36k. ALL NIGHT! This was fine, especially to get over 4 minutes worth was a bonus. I was expecting like 1 minute max..

First off all 56kers quit whining and get a faster connection .Becuase when jk2 comes oout your gonna wish you did. All ping brother. Second there should be a low med high. Whats availble to every one is a meduim hence its 3 megs.!!!!It looks pretty good for what they have only done in 3 months!!!!!
Keep up the good work Raven :)

Instead of blurting stuff out you have taken the time to realize that maybe some of us can't get a faster connection were we are at.

That's almost funny! In my country I need a fortune just for ISDN, let alone cable connection...

06-13-2001, 12:20 AM
How much in USD? Over here in Jersey, I get optimum online cable for $30/month.

06-13-2001, 12:42 AM
pity we dont all live in jersey then, eh?

06-13-2001, 12:52 AM
I'm sorry. :( :( :(

06-13-2001, 01:13 AM
Somewere between 35-40 USD for ISDN 128...
IMO it's not woth it...

Hehehehe, that made me start laughing out loud ;)

Yeah, you Yanks :) have to realise that over here in the UK we have this sh**ty little company called BT who control our entire telephony service. Apparently it is beyond them to get ADSL or cable services sorted out properly. I can't get ADSL because I live "a few metres too far away from the exchange". :mad: Even if I could, it would cost me about US$140 for installation and then about US$40 per month from then on. And that sort of cash I just can't afford. :(

06-14-2001, 04:13 PM
ed, ****ty is an understatement.

BTW, you yanks are about to buy TONS of shares in BT cos they are skint.

DON'T! I want them to suffer!

Youd think being an interviewer youd have to know some background to the game. By forgetting the name it just showed how little thought had gone into the interview. My mum could have probably done better!

06-19-2001, 03:01 PM
Cable's always a good option in the UK if you happen to live in the right area. And Blueyonder is now only 25 a month...

06-19-2001, 03:41 PM
How much is installation and set-up?

06-19-2001, 08:25 PM
Well, Blueyonder doesn't even mention Wales, let alone any particular city of Wales. I've no doubt the same is true of all other providers. I know NTL doesn't offer broadband here either, or BT. They all focus around the largest population areas in England and Scotland, and it sux, IMO.

I don't expect to see broadband in my area for at least another 5 years, and I've no doubt at all that it will be an inferior product compared to what the rest of the UK will have by then. The only real option would be to move, or simply give up on broadband access. :mad:

I guess I'll be playing a lot of SP games in the near future, and continue to rely on PC game mags for large video clips, patches, demos and the like. :(

I'm finally getting cable when I return to Norway. I can't wait.

I think I have to pay around $25 a month for it, or $300 a year. That's not too bad.

Well, I live in possibly the largest population area in England - the south-east, and I can't get broadband. :mad:
