Guys
I have a question how does putlocker decrease the file size to 300 mb when streaming and when downloading its 1 gb ?? and is there a way to reduce the file size when converting as my mencoder has been disables because it was not converting files correctly so i have flv now so guys is this possible.
I want to do this because i have some huge video files and i would be uploading more soon but when i stream them they turn out to take alot of time to stream

Sounds to me like they stream a different version of the file than they offer for download. Otherwise, I don't know of any way possible to compress a file during playback.

Are you converting with ffmpeg? Could we see the command that you're currently using?

Oh, ok...so you're still using all of the ffmpeg commands, just with a couple added?

Do you have resize set to yes or no?

It would require creating two copies of each file that is uploaded, one high quality for downloading and one for viewing. This would end up using a lot of space, though.

That's up to you...enabling resize won't create duplicate files, though, it only forces the conversion to resize the original.

That depends on the original file, and the other settings in your conversion, for example, if you upload a 480x336 file, with resize set to yes, and typical quality settings, outputting it at a larger size will increase the file size dramatically...if you are uploading an HD video and resizing it to a smaller resolution, the file size will just depend on the quality settings you're using.

so u mean is that if i place it to yes then it will increase the size but in good quality or the quality i placed in the pixels area and if to no it will convert into orignal file?

But as i see here is another problem now i actually saw the movies that i uploaded that were dvd quality come on the website as crappy quality videos why is that so eg is
