Mod DB now supports videos - just another way we help you show off your work.
Posted by INtense! on Dec 10th, 2007
One of the new v4 features which we have been hard at work on for a long time now is the ability for mod and game developers to upload videos to their mod, game, engine, group and personal profiles for people to view YouTube style! Our video rendering and delivery server is now up and running, and ploughing through the waiting videos.
We encourage you to start uploading videos and audio to your profile for your fans to watch! For those that want the technical details of our implementation, we are using the open source program ffmpeg to render all videos using the Sorenson H.263 codec. This is the same codec used by YouTube, but our own tweaks mean that you'll get much better quality from us. In the near future (When support for it becomes more commonplace) we'll be moving to the even higher quality H.264 codec, making videos on Mod DB an amazing way to showcase your work.
Now for a few demo embedded movies:
As always let us know if you have any problems with this feature and we will investigate. Enjoy the media (note. because it takes a good 10 ~ 20minutes per video to render, it will be a while before our servers catch up and all videos are playable, approximately 12 hours)
