Sending a movie to the Web progress
This page of the Save Movie Wizard indicates the progress of uploading your movie to the video hosting provider's server. The time it takes to upload the movie to the Web server depends on the following factors.
- Length of your movie. The time it takes for your movie to be sent increases in proportion to the length of your movie. For example, a movie that is only one or two minutes long takes less time to send than a movie that is 15 minutes long (assuming the same movie setting is selected for both). Therefore, if you have a movie that is an hour in length, the amount of time it takes to send the movie can be significant.
- Movie setting. The time it takes for your movie to be sent also increases if you chose a higher quality setting for saving your movie. For example, it takes less time to send a movie with a movie setting that displays the video at 160x120 pixels than to send the same movie with a movie setting that displays the video at 640x480 pixels (at the same ).
- Your Internet connection speed. The time it takes for your movie to be sent and uploaded to the Web also depends on your Internet connection speed. For example, it takes more time to send a movie that is five minutes long over a dial-up modem (56 Kbps), than it does when sending the same movie to the Web over a broadband Internet connection, such as DSL, cable modem, or higher (384 Kbps).
