Size of the videos too big to download

    Hi there,

     

    I don't know if someone has asked this question already & if this issue has been taken care of?

     

    I was looking at Erik Meijer's Functional Programming lectures series & thought of downloading the video.

    Somehow, the size of MP4 is more than 300 MB, WMV is also the same.

     

    Is there a low-fi version of the same? I mean - can fit in half or less than half size?

    Any alternatives? Flash? Wink

    Any other website where I can see these videos on light format?

     

    Thanks

    Isn't there a fix to this?

     

    Is it that I am the only one worried about big file size? Smiley

    Hi,

     

    without knowing exactly which video you referring to, it's hard to say.

     

    we get videos that come in 2GB and get re-sized to 300MB.

    Hi Petka,

     

    It is Erik Meijer's lectures on functional programming

    http://channel9.msdn.com/tags/C9+Lectures/

     

    Please re-read my question with videos from above link.

    Now, are there any options?

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

     

    The series has a lot of videos in it. Can you specifically tell me which one?

     

    Thank you.

    Petka,

     

    I am talking about the 1st video in the series.

    That itself is 300 megs.

     

    It could take few seconds & less money in US to download it.

    For me, I am paying per the downloaded bytes & hence this request.

     

    Any solutions?

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

     

    if we take this lecture for example: http://channel9.msdn.com/shows/Going+Deep/C9-Lectures-Brian-Beckman-Covariance-and-Contravariance-in-Physics-1-of-1/

     

    Original file submitted to us was 1.04GB. Encoded wmv file: 441Mb.  A bit bigger than 2:1 ratio is acceptable. But i don’t think we can’t go any further on these videos. Our encoders calculate size/bitrate/etc automatically. Short of re-encoding this for you by hand, there is no solution for you request. Sorry about that. 

     

    Thanks
