Upload Videos

This process is very similar to adding MP3s (see above). You start by logging in and going to your video module. There, you can fill in the various information fields in the 'Edit' area. To rip Video Files from a DVD you own the copyright for, you can download a program called Handbrake: http://handbrake.fr/ The standard encoding that looks the best is H.264 Encoding. For frame size, generally 480 x 360 pixels is best, or wider dimensions if the video is in the wide screen format. Make sure you specify that the output of the file needs to be 100MB or less.
