Download of Australian Open Mens Final Ceremony Now Ready

Discussion in 'General Pro Player Discussion' started by Austin Trilby, Apr 21, 2004.

  1. If anyone is still interested I have now uploaded the award ceremony of the Aus Open Mens Final 2004 between Federer and Safin.

    See

    http://www.geocities.com/proclassic98/techie.html

    The Aus Open Mens Final Ceremony is in .wmv format. Due to the web space limits of this free account the award ceremony has been split into 3 parts. Parts 1 and 2 are available for download now. Next Wednesday (28 April) parts 1 and 2 will be deleted to make space for the uploading of part 3.

    This free account does not accept files with .wmv extensions so I have renamed the files with .jpg extensions. To view the video download to your PC. Right click each link and select
    'save target as'. Either change the extension from .jpg to .wmv prior to the download or after it has downloaded onto your PC.


    Quality Issues: Due to webspace limits and low bandwidth at my end(dial-up) the videos are in 320X244 resolution @ 15frames/sec. The quality is watchable at normal size and appears 'clearer' if you view them at slightly less than 100% of full size (just resize your Media player). The videos were converted using the free Windows Movie Maker from My full-screen conversion. Windows Movie Maker is very basic and some background noise is present during parts of each .wmv file but the proper audio is still clear enough.

  3. It looks like the free account limits download to a certain MB per period of time. It is the free version after all. You guys must have fat internet pipes.

  4. 1 week should be enough download time for everyone who wants it. If not post here by the 27th of April and I'll postpone the upload of part 3 by a few days.

  5. Theres always a catch with free stuff. I had a look at the Geocities site and the free webhosting limits downloads to 3GB per month(metered hourly).

    Thats 3000MB per month. Since there are 720 hours a month(30 days), hourly metering probably means the 3000MB limit is spread evenly over the 720 hours. It works out at (3000 / 720) MB per hour! 4MB per hour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THats not even enough for part one!

    Anyone know another free web hosting site :cry:
