No easy answer to that, but I could direct you to where to start perhaps.

Thanks for the help. A bit of FRAPs, a bit of Virtual Dub and a bit of handbrake seem to ahve worked.


I'm uploading my second video as I type. See the original posts or here for more http://youtu.be/wTXhcOac3g8

Hey, I looked at your videos and hm.. I think you overshrunk it (is there such a thing?).

Video #2 also had very low sound and Video #1 was better.

Since it was I that gave you that link to videohelp I now feel a responsibility to try help you improve, though there are others on STO forums that probably could give better help.


Have you read through the help pages and forums at YouTube? There seems to be alot of good advices there.

YouTube Upload instructions and settings

Official YouTube forum

My next advice would be to not shrink them that much, make them .mp4. Upload and pay YouTube for more account size, or perhaps make several accounts with 1 episode in each.

Or go live even.

Yeah the 2nd video has definitely processed less well than I hoped. Looked fine before upload. It's a bit of experimentation on encoding time vs upload time vs quality.

My aim is to have it 'right' by level eight when I start playing foundry missions. I'm going to try again tonight and see if I get better results. I didn't know YouTube had an account size limit.

Rather interesting project you're doing.

One Foundry Mission I'd suggest playing (for when you get to that point) is 'Hunt for the Daq'Duj'. Or, as I sometimes like to call it, 'The Hunt for Red October: Star Trek Edition'.

Seriously, the guy who authored that mission HAD to be inspired by 'Hunt for Red October' when making it, and it clearly fits in the theme of the Klingon-Federation War. I'd definitely recommend it when the time comes.

NOTE: For those of you who don't know what 'Hunt for Red October' is, it's a novel by Tom Clancy which got turned into a VERY GOOD movie by Paramount Studios.

I've updated the first page to include a list of foundry episodes i'm going to try and play.

I've been playing some of the Cryptic missions to try and work out my FRAPS issues, I seem to get my microphone input far far too low.I might upload these at some point soon, but I'll have it cracked for when I hit the Foundry missions hopefully.
