Flash movie size? Preload?

I am upgrading my website och want to show my videos in a new size, 720x405. Testing some different Flash compression.

LentoVision: havskust

What do you think of this size, about 800 kbps, is it too heavy?
What about preloading, do you like that?

Thanks in advance,

The flowers seem to look OK but the seashore could use higher bitrate. And both of them have relatively little movement; if you have videos with more action or pans/tilts, for this picture size you will have to go probably 1Mbps or even higher for good looking video.

You may want to try mpeg4/H.264 instead of flash; my tests show significantly better quality compared to flash at the same bitrate. The flash player will play it back just as it would play flash; the only place there will be problems is on older/slower computers as the local computer has to decode on the fly.

If the preload should take place in the main player window... well, it's not there.

Thanks, Ervin,

Do you mean that I can substitute the flash movie, just like that? OK, Iīll do it ...

I just checked the downloading time for a movie at my place - around 30 seconds. Yes, that is far to long for my site. I just canīt have people, possible customers, waiting that long for a movie.

I will ask friends and relatives to watch the movies and the download time. How long did it take for you, Ervin?
