[playogg-discuss] huge file size with clips converted to Ogg Theora! How to fix?
Fri, 22 May 2009 21:31:08 +0200
I am a podcast video producer (about 3000 end user subscribers) and
wish to support the PlayOGG campaign.
I downloaded videos off YouTube as MP4 (Firefox ->
Greasmonkey-Userscript) or as FLV, for example from MySpaceTV.
I converted both MP4 (Youtube) and FLV (MySpace) with ffmpeg2theora
(on Mac OS X 10.5.7) to Ogg Theora.
I noticed two things:
- the transcoding to Ogg Theora is slower comparing to other codecs.
But this is not a problem for me.
- The file size with Ogg Theora is huge. This cost bandwidth $$$.
>From 22M to 58M and from 15M to 29M
How to solve this issue? Do I something wrong?
