Topic: Video files on you audio demo

    Video files on your audio demo

    Greetings! Here's a question for all you experienced game audio gurus...

    When sending out a CD-R demo to potential clients/employers, what format do you use for video files? Ideally I'd like to use a format that would run on most PCs and most Macs. Any suggestions or experience in this area?

    Generally an AVI file should be readable by just about anyone. DivX encoding has become fairly pervasive too, so a DivX encoded AVI should give you a compact enough file as well.

    I think you'd very rarely have to worry about Macs as developers build content for PC, Xbox and PS2 for the most part.

    Seeing as they are effectively a software development company they should be able to play back just about anything you give them.

    AVI, MPG or even WMV is probably a safe bet though.

    Of course all the XBox2 development kits are PowerMacs...:P

    I'd say that MPG is probably the best choice as it can easily be decoded by WMP and Quicktime with no addins. WMV requires a software download on Macs - as does AVI. PCs typically don't have Quicktime installed by default (although I personally think MOV is one of the better formats available). All told, I think MPG is the most widely accepted without additional software needed.

    Question Re: Video files on you audio demo

    Is there a way to make MPEG with 44Khz 16bit Stereo sound using free Tools on PC?
