I would guess there isn't any limitation, since you're the one responsible for hosting the thing...

I have 100 megs of web space from my University.  So I could host a few videos if anyone needs it.  I'd probably want vids to be less than 20 megs so that I could host a few and still have my crap on there.

I have almost 40gb free space in my FTP server so i can host a "few" videos too if it's necessary  ;) No matter what size the video is or else  8) it's my "honour" to help any Machinae Supremacy fans, if i can say so ;) Since my friend told me about MS it has been one of my favourite bands  :) God bless; my friend  ::)

We need to decide when the deadline is for this video compentition. As I said my trials would be running out in less than a month. So did you want to make it the videos have to be in by the 1st of June Midnight, according to the forum time.

People who are in it:
 - Me
 - VT
 - Poisoned

Shows interest:
 - KB2k1
 - Funkadeena
 - V-man
 - TnT
 - morda

Any more???? or should we just wait for the end of the month and see who submits their video?>

Also we need some video size guidelines so we do not run into any huge downloads. May I suggest about <30 Megs coded in Divx/xvid/WMP9 with mp3/ogg/ac3 something like that.

I can host some webspace for people. I would have to have you send me the file and I would upload it to a good server.

And on another note I show interest, but don't know if I have time and ideas.  ???

well, i'm allready working on my video so count me in.

I don't know about the size though, say a song is approx 4 min, and you do a video that's 4 min long, what resolution should the video be in to fit into the 30mb frame? or does it need heavy compression?

Ok well it seems there is interset in this project of ours. I just wasn't too sure if everyone else had interest in it. I needed to get the ball rolling, think of it more of a big bump.

Well does everyone agree that the end date should be the 1st of June? We need some boundaries here people! Or should we let the person who originated this thread or motion (Poisoned, VT) handle all of this information.

People who are in it:
 - Me
 - VT
 - Poisoned
 - V-man

Shows interest:
 - Vortex (Video Hosting + Might make video, if have time)
 - TnT (Video Hosting)

 - KB2k1
 - Funkadeena
 - V-man
 - morda

----------------official competition response------------------
there are no limitations, except that the song must be by machinae supremacy - entries will NOT be judged on their resolution or file size. bear in mind that you are responsible for hosting your own video.

incidently, what do you all think the deadline should be?

-------- Video update for psyching the competition ------

first minute of the song "Player One" filmed using exciting footage from the game "Oni"

Oni is a truly cool game.


It's my job to keep SID elite.

I'd like to see the final deadline being June 7th. May is a busy month for me as far as school goes, lots of projects and independant study units to do so I can't focus all my energy on the video. Most of my stuff finishes at the end of may (ironically punctuated with an inflames concert) then i've got freedom for a little while.
