Information I need from you (Required):

  1. Title of the video
  2. Music artist
  3. Song title
  4. Spoilers through which episode
  5. Description of the video - be as detailed as you like. Scapers will enjoy reading your thoughts on the subject matter, technical details and inspiration.

Optional:

I am no longer making banner artwork for each video, I'm using standard artwork for each new video submitted. If you wish to submit artwork unique to your video, please email a JPEG banner (610 x 116 pixels) and I will do the rest.

Method 1:

If the video is 20 megs or less in size, email it to me.

If you have access to a server, or if your video is already on your web site, simply email the ftp or web information and I will download the file ASAP. Important: If the video is available on the web for only a limited time, please include that information in your email.

Most free web hosting companies don't allow video files to be placed on their servers. You can usually upload the file without error, but if people start downloading it the hosting company will either delete the file or shut your site down. However, you can upload the video, send me the URL and I will download it to my site. No hosting company will get upset if the video is downloaded once. Once I have it on my server you can delete the video file. Most internet service providers give their customers web space large enough to hold a music video.

A good free hosting company is Geocities or you can start a free Yahoo! newsgroups, which comes with 20 megs of space. However, most free hosting companies limit the size of your files to just 5 megs each. If your video is under 5 megs in size, great. If not, I suggest using a file archiving tool, such as Winace, to split the video into smaller pieces. I can then download the pieces and assemble them on my PC.

Method 2: You can mail the video to me. This works well if the video is on VHS tape and I need to convert it to QuickTime or Windows Media. If the video is already in digital format, simply burn it to a CD and mail it to me. I don't check this post office box everyday, so be sure to send me an email notification that you mailed a video.

 

Here are the preferred video formats (the less compression the better):

.MPEG or .MPG - They tend to be very large files, but I can convert .MPEG files into virtually any format, including Windows Media, QuickTime and Real Player.

.AVI (Windows) - Like MPEG, these files tend to be very large, but I can export them into all major formats.

.WMV (Windows Media) If you can't send a video in .MPEG or .AVI format, Windows Media is a good choice. Compatible with Windows and Mac. Please send the highest quality version you can. Unfortunately, I can't convert .WMV into any other format, which may prevent some people from viewing them.

.MOV (QuickTime) is a good format, particularly if you send a very high quality version. In addition to the QuickTime original you send, I can convert your vid into Windows Media and Realplayer, but only if it is very high quality. Lower quality QT videos are fine if you have no other, but I can't export them to other formats, limiting the number of scapers willing to download them.

DivX is an interesting format, but it's a pain to deal with. I can't guarantee that a file sent in this format will play on my machine, and therefore I can't guarantee it will be posted to the site.

One problem many people have come across is the fact free hosting options will often limit the size of your video file to only 5 megs. Here's a solution for Windows:

Winace is a little shareware program that lets you slice your file into whatever pieces will fit on your server. I then download the pieces and reassemble them. Several Scapers have chosen this option for sending me their vids over the net.

There may be more options to Winace at Download.com
