    I have had several people try this video from different computers -- same problem. Doesn't seem that asking everyone to do those steps is the right solution. Are you on pc? Does it look lousy on your computer?

  • brisake Sep 07, 2010

    It doesn't seem it should be necessary to clear cookies and turn off anti-virus in order to see a youTube video. People watch them all the time and I can't imagine this is what they do to see them clearly. Does anyone have any ideas what is happening on this video?

  • brisake Sep 07, 2010

    Seriously? It looks sharp? Yes, I would like to see a download. I cannot access a pc right now but know it was looking terrible on one a few nights ago... and terrible on a couple I had friends look at.

    How large would the flv download be?

  • brisake Sep 07, 2010

    By terrible, I mean pixelated to the point where you cannot make out much of anything. No focus. On the mac, the images are clear and pretty sharp.

    Also on Internet Explorer, I did not see an option to view the video on any other resolution than the one youtube was streaming.

I show the provided link. I can't locate any problems. What do you mean TERRIBLE? I show it both on IE and Mozilla, it looks great. Also keep in mind that every video file on youtube like sites, is streaming from their servers as a video file embedded at the Adobe platform, so your prototype file is re-encoded. Anyway, I don't want to mess you around, the video is fine, maybe there is a problem at the players' side. In case you'd like post me back your e-mail in order to send you the video file as flv movie (downloaded from youtube).

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

    The video file is about 16Mb, send my an e-mail to send it. As far for full screen on Internet Explorer you can either double click on the video window or use the proper box (see the picture bellow). The default setting for video quality is 360pixels (this is the setting that the video opens in default). If you choose 240pixels the quality in not so good. Take a closer look:

    Keep in mind that this is a print screen from my own computer. Another thing that you must know is that every video looks worse in full screen because you force the screen to magnify. So the real video is at the video's native resolution.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
    If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

You can try to clear all cookies and temp internet files and uninstall all the toolbars and addons on your IE. If possible, turn off the antivirus for a try. Good luck.

    Actually it looks OK on my computer. I don't use this computer for anything other than emailing and browsing so it might be quicker than some other computers. Sometimes there might be memory issues, some memory is quicker and buffered and more stable with automatic error correction. Sometimes there might be a setting of MTU on the router which is not working well with the computer and make the connection slow. But if other video of youtube works then memory and MTU may not be the issue but something on youtube. Youtube do have development SDK and accounts for you to customize your video in varies ways you may like to check a little bit.

  • Donald Huang Sep 08, 2010

    Yeah the video is recognizable but some edges are kind of blur. Maybe it will show some dots in a really large view or large screen where you will see those picture with 200% zoom of your browser or a low resolution.

PartI. FLV VS. SWF

What is FLV?

FLV files (Flash Video Files), a binary file format, are composed of a video bit stream and an audio bit stream and deliver web video over the Internet with Macromedia Flash Player. FLV files are considered to be streaming video files. If you put FLV file in website, you don't have to download the entire file before playing. FLV content may also be embedded within SWF files. The audio and video data within FLV files are encoded in the same way as they are within SWF files. Unlike SWF format, FLV do not have maximum of 16000 frames limitation and ideally for large video file size. Notable users of the FLV format files are YouTube, Yahoo video, Google Video, Reuters.com, My Space, Facebook video etc.

What is SWF?

SWF (Shockwave Flash)- The file format SWF is a vector graphics file format, not streaming media. SWF file can be played directly in web browser, such as Internet Explorer. However, FLV file can not be playback directly, because it requires a separate SWF file which reads the video content from FLV. The SWF file that plays FLV file is called online flash player.

When I download videos for my ps3 I can watch it in original size and it looks great but it's way too small for my tv.If I change the screen mode(in the ps3 settings)to normal or zoom it fits my tv great...


So, we're talking like Internet videos, right? Internet videos are normally in very low resolution. The PS3 cannot change the resolution the videos were recorded and/or uploaded in. They will only look good relative to their resolution so the answer to your question is "no" and that goes for all low-res video, not just from the Internet.
