Thanks oops56. That's a pretty cool little tool that will come in handy! I've been looking for something like this.

Zelph, The video files hosted on PhotoBucket use the Flash FLV video format. This is the same as YouTube and many other video sites.
FLV video files are relatively small, are easy to stream across the internet, and display consistently on all computer browsers with the Flash Player plug-in.
Here's a comparison chart of many common video formats http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison ... er_formats.

Oops, AVI video files are getting a bit long in the tooth now. The video files are larger than other formats available that have the same or better quality.
The FLV files used at PhotoBucket support a few different types of video compression, most notably H.264/MPEG-4.
MPEG-4 video files are relatively small while still maintaining video quality.

So basically, When you upload an AVI video the file is large so it takes longer and once it's on PhotoBucket's server it has to be converted to an FLV file.
When you upload an MPEG-4 video the file uploads faster because it's smaller and it can be converted to FLV faster.

Naturally, one might think "I'll just upload an FLV file and save some steps". I haven't tried this although it probably works. But chances are it will be re-processed to FLV again to reduce it to fit within a specific size limit. So, stick with MPEG-4.

Hope that explains some things!

Input formats:
avi, asf, mov, rm, rmvb

flv, mkv, mpg

3gp, m4v, and vob



Output formats:
avi, wmv, mp4, 3gp

wmv and flv

MPEG-1 and MPEG-2

mpg (PAL or NTSC)

-------------------------------------------

So with this software I convert avi to flv and should be able to upload to photobucket super fast?
Thanks for your help dlarson. :D

Need some help!!! Downloaded this program on dialup (over an hour) and also went to Stumpjumpers house and downloaded it on a flashcard using Roadrunner(maybe 15 seconds). both methods ended with same results when I tried to open it up after installing it. It says can not find MFC42U.dll file needed to execute. Is this a file that should be part of my Windows operating system? This desktop is running Windows ME. Could this file be part of a newer version or did I not get a full download ? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I think this program could help me load faster as my digicam uses AVI, MOV, and ASF files only.
