Need more choices

This is great for creating video for the wo services listed (YouTube and Go Fish). These service recode the files before posting. Other services do not so it is up to the user. There is no user control for resolution or bitrates. I have seen some services that have a file size limit so it is necessary the user have some control even if the choices are limited. Like 720X480, 340X240 and 160X120. If you are stickign with WMV output only, then have a few bitrate choices, too. Personally, I think it would be nice to have a few other output choices like MPEG 4 and DivX. But have limited choices since you don't want to make the app too complicated.

Thanks for the feedback. We specifically left out the bit rate and resolution choices. Those are options you might find in a future version of VideoWave, but we wanted Buzz to be a no-brainer. It uses the optimal bit rate for your video in order to meet the service requirements. If the limit is 100MB, for example, it will make sure your video fits, but if you start with low resolution video, it's smart enough not to go too high on the bit rate and waste upload time. The only time it should stop you is if the video is too long for the requirements.

 

Let us know if you think it needs tweaking. We may have to adjust as we experiment with more files and services.

I definitly agree with the need for more options. I understand wanting to keep things simple, but what am I going to do with a .wmv file? Nobody with an inkling of common sense uses windows media player anymore. I personally uninstall it, along with all the other adware crap that comes with new computers and software-bundled operating systems, as soon as I get a new computer/operating system. Now I have to search the internet for something that will change my useless .wmv file into something I can actually use. If your going for simplicity, you should let me simply export my edited file directly into what I want it to be instead of making me figure out how to convert it myself.

 

Btw, I really like this program and the idea behind it and I know that my oposition to WMV is rediculous, I'm sure its not still the crappy software I remember it being back in the day, but I slightly resent the implications that this software's file preference seems to purport

For video upload, it really doesn't matter what we output to for the intermediate file. It all gets converted to flash when received by YouTube, etc. WMV is a high-quality codec for the bitrate, and it's free so we don't have to worry about licensing, etc.

 

For the export command, we still use WMV because every video editor and converter on the planet supports it, so it's perfectly flexible. What are you thinking of doing with the file that WMV does not suit?
