Comment No way for ordinary users to give rate things (Score 1) 2219

I'm a Slashdot user with 'Excellent' Karma, but I never see an option for rating a submission or comments. So Slashdot is a broadcast only system where some secret cabal of editors gets to rate things. I go to Reddit if I want to participate. Too bad Slashdot doesn't have a way of letting users come to consensus on questions like, "do you like this new feature on Slashdot". But I bet they're using the newest tech fashions in CSS and Javascript for the new beta web pages. Shiny!

Comment Convert it to high quality Flash using FFMPEGX (Score 1) 227

If you don't want to use youtube, try converting it to a flash format and posting it on your own website. See this for more details:

From the website:

"Currently, the best format for such use is FLV (Flash Video), as almost all browsers will display it natively without need of installing extra plugins. It is for example the format used in Google Video."

You can control the size and bit rate (quality) so you can create a widely compatible video, but still make it high quality.
