Host Your Video on a Web Site

Putting your video onto a web site is a fun and easy way to distribute it.

With the growth of broadband Internet connections, most people now have access to fast download speeds. Given this fact, it is reasonable to expect your viewers watch your movie in a web browser, or download it to their hard drive to watch it using a media player. However, the size of an uncompressed digital video is still too large to be reasonably distributed online. Therefore, you need to compress your video for online distribution.

Warning

This hack covers the creation of video suitable for downloading from a web site. If you are planning on placing a video that is longer than 15 minutes, you should evaluate using streaming video [Hack #83] .
