View Full Version : Please help me...

Alright people, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with ubuntu (except I made the video on ubuntu). The only reason why I ask here is because I can't find anywhere else to ask (well, I tried their support, but they haven't replied for about a week).

Alright, you are probibly really confused now. My problem: I can't get my stupid video to play with blip.tv. I tried uploading a file in xvid, with MP2 for audio. And when the flash conversion came up, it was just white, no sound, no video, just 4 mins. of white, and then ads.

So, I read that blip.tv will let you upload your own flash video, so I converted it to .flv, with flv1 for video, and mp3 for audio. And I saw the video, but it didn't play well at all (see the link).

Since then, I've tried varies formats, from divx, to h.264, and I even tried .mov. All of which gave me white videos.

So can you help me get the video to work?

Here is the video, with the flash video I made:

And the resolts of every upload I've tried:

Please help me, I'm sorry to ask it here, but I can't find anywhere else.

Thank you.

I used MPEG 4 with an MP3 soundtrack, inside the AVI container format, and it works fine with reasonable quality. I can confirm that this format works with Youtube, Megavideo, and Blip.tv.

And what video codec please?

Once again, thank you to you all.

What I mean is do you use Mpeg 4 as Xvid, DivX, or x264, or lavc.

Thank you
