The Wiki Is Looking For Videos!
« on: March 31, 2015, 08:37:39 PM »
Hey all,

The wiki is currently interested in building up a collection of videos that players and potential players can watch. All the videos are based on match footage of Infinity Wars- whether it be a close game, an amazing bluff, a brutal slog, or just an impressive match. We'd love to have the community show us how they play.

So far, we had a rough page (really, really rough!), just kind of thrown together which you can see here-
http://infinity-wars.wikia.com/wiki/Match_Videos

But if we can get enough player interest, and enough videos submitted, we'll give the page an overhaul, creating a library of videos and give everyone a place to shine! (Or suffer a crushing defeat)

Ideally, all you would need to do, is post the video on a site that can embed, such as YouTube, and then post the link in the comments below. I can then post them to the wiki for everyone to see. (Eventually we'll make an easy way to post them on the wiki yourself)


If this endeavor is a success, we'll look into expanding a bit more- possibly dedicating full sections to recurring submitters, but more on this later if things go well.

Can you embed from Twitch.tv?

I'm not too familiar with twitch, but I'll definitely look into it.

Not at all an expert at this, but I can try to help.

I have no direct experience with video spin, but if I have no idea what is actually causing a problem when converting a video, the first thing I try is making sure as many of the properties for the output video are the same as the source video as possible.  If the program is typical, there should be some way to change the properties of the output file before its generated; if there is no way to choose what those properties are, I recommend finding a different program to work with, as the program trying to "help" you by generating the properties automatically can sometimes be detrimental.

So, try making sure video resolution is the same, that the aspect ratio is the same, the framerate is the same, the bitrate is the same, the codec used is the same, and so forth. If you want to be really sure, do it for the audio properties as well. Don't worry if the options given by the program aren't exactly right, just set them to be as close a match as possible.

If setting the properties doesn't improve the video, find a different program and try again. There are a million free video editors. One is bound to work without too much fuss. :)

Hi,

thanks for your answer

i think i found the issue

1. i didnt catch the game in wide screen 16:9
2. i didnt catch it in 1900:1280
3. lack of quality with the transfert mp4 --> avi even with Adobe first

Solution :

1. Youtube online editor
2. Movie maker coming from windows essentials (not windows movie maker)


Result is much better : https://youtu.be/DVJKz6t8dmY

Feel free to catch whatever you want for the wiki.

I will keep improving the quality of my videos in the future.

If you are still looking for videos, I have a growing playlist of my matches on youtube.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdK-RILhTH1-PE-9PfN6oixG3Ul6aZVZt

If you want me to provide individual links I can go through them sometime and pick out some of the better matches.

I don't think they're still adding our videos.

The community videos section has 5 vids, the last one from 5 months ago.
