    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
