Chapter 44. Creating Digital Video > Distributing Your Video to the World

Distributing Your Video to the World

There are many ways to get that video project of yours to others (assuming they want to watch it). One way is to output your project file as a highly compressed video file that you can upload to the Internet. Most video-editing software supports at least one of these compressed video formats (MPEG and RealVideo are the most common) that create files small enough to upload to a server. Be careful, however, to keep your videos short—very short. Even short movies can take a pretty long time to upload or view online. Besides, people's attention spans may not be as long as you think.

If you don't want to put your video on the Internet, you have several other options. Obviously, you can record your movies back onto video tape. If you have a digital camcorder you can record them on the digital tape the camcorder uses. If your PC has a video card with S-video or RCA outputs, you can hook up your PC to a standard VCR.
