About distributing your AVI moviesWritten by Jakob Jelling
An AVI movie can be compressed using different video codecs. This compression is necessary in order to reduce movie file size which otherwise would occupy too much space and copying it or transferring it from one device to another would be a complicated step to achieve.
If you wish to watch your AVI movie in your PC and this movie was compressed with a particular codec, you will need to have same codec installed on that PC. You will always need one same codec to compress and to decompress not only an AVI movie but any other movie n any other format as well.
There are some codecs which you can use with your AVI movie when you wish that it doesn't loose as much quality as it generally would through compression- decompression process. TSCC is one of codecs which would allow you to compress, transfer and decompress your movie without loosing its quality.
One of main advantages of AVI files is fact that they can be played in many different players while other files can only be played in specific ones. If you storage or distribute your own movie through an AVI file, it could be seen in Real Player, Camtasia Player, Media Player and QuickTime.
How to optimize your video for the webWritten by Jakob Jelling
Optimizing your video or movie in order it can be distributed and played on web implies many aspects. This action, often known as streaming video, must be achieved carefully in order not to loose an important amount of video quality on process. Due to great amount of data a video or movie contains and big size it file would have, transferring it or playing it over web with its original quality might be not easy sometimes.
The PC or equipment person who will watch your movie has will be one of main factors you should consider at time of sending your video to him or letting him download it. Depending on equipment, video a person plays over web will be played with good quality, bad quality or it might not be played at all.
To start with, a person should have a good Internet connection based on cable or DSL in order to be able to play or watch your movie over web. If they do not have high speed connection, accessing and watching your movie would be almost impossible, since in case they were able to play it, it would be of very low quality and probably would go blank sometimes.
