Modern consumer cameras make it easy to create simple video (and audio) clips. Most new digital cameras will allow you to create video clips that are already encoded in widely-used codecs, such as mpeg or avi formats...

Tips for capturing video

  • most digital cameras which have video capabilities encode video in mpeg format
  • don't shoot video in "portrait" orientation, use "landscape"
  • shoot short clips (less than 5 minutes)
  • for video destined for the web, use lower resolution and lower quality. this makes the video clip smaller in size and faster to download

Tips for uploading video

  • Use lower quality video clips when posting to webgui
  • use lower resolution (320x240 or less)
  • rather than editing video on the computer, shoot short clips of video
