Increased file size please

Post by Ascension III »

Hi,

We would like to post videos for public review of our recent rocket launch which exceeded the record set by the X-12. Our videos are about 14mins each and to get them to under 20Mb completely destroys the quality to the point where you cant see what is happening. Could the size limit be increased for us please? We saw for U.S Water Rockets you increased it to 30Mb. Any chance it could be increased more than that?

Thanks!
Team Ascension

file size limit increased to 50 MB. Hopefully that should be enough.

Hi,

The quality at 50Mb is still too poor. Would it be OK if we uploaded the videos (in a higher resolution) to our YouTube channel and then just embed the link in the forum?

Thanks!

The files you uploaded meet the requirements but to ease server loading, go ahead and use youtube and embed the videos to new posts.

THIS IS THE URGENT PART: Could you please delete our two post topics (including all videos, pictures and altimeter files):

26-08-2015 | 9:27am | Flight 1 of Ascension III | 2723Ft (830m)

and

26-08-2015 | 11:27am | Flight 2 of Ascension III | 2707Ft (825m)

We have good reason, but it is hard to explain SC:

Thanks!

Unfortunately that is the highest quality that we can upload as the files are just under the 50Mb limit.

To upload better quality videos will take about 10 hours (per video) to upload to YouTube as their servers are so busy :yikes:

So for the moment we will upload the 50Mb files until we have the opportunity to upload the higher quality videos to YouTube.
