General Cycling Discussion - Lance Across America Video Download
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Ok I converted the video, only problem is it's 18 megs. I have no clue how flash managed to compress the whole thing down to 3.7 megs, it's amazing. Anyway, I'm using DIVX fast-motion at 250kbps with 44k 16 bit audio. If anyone has any ideas how to reduce the size without making the video choppy, please let me know.
Also, I know a bunch of you wanted to save the video, anyone know where I can stick this thing up for download? I don't think this forum allows me to attach files that big.

If nothing else, you could make a torrent and distribute it that way. If you do, I'll help seed it for a day or two.
You lost me at "torrent".
The only thing I know about seeding and torrent is when you seed a cloud and get torrential rains. Haw haw.

Torrent is bad.
How do you figure?

I've got a Linux fileserver running off my DSL line (yes, residential DSL, BUT my upload speed is 1mbit, and will be increased up to 5mbit soon). However, it is down right now due to an upgrade of the OS. It should be back up by tommorow night. The web address you can use to access the easy-to-use uploader is www.filehosting.tk. Enjoy!

Is that the video? If so I want it! How did you get it?
I am interested in this video as well.
By the way...this ad titled "Magnet" was shown on the last edition of 2004 Road To The Tour on OLN. I wish I could get it to my hard drive but at least I TIVOed it. Hard to tell how long they'll run it but I bet it won't run longer than a month...tops. But you might check the next of edition of the above program.

I'll say it again - if someone can get a file of this to me, I'll torrent and seed it for a few days.

slviod, you can now put the file on my uploader. There is no file size limit. If I forgot to put the proper file extension on the allowed list, let me know and I will fix it ASAP. When you upload the file, it will provide you with the http:// address of the file for all to download.
Ok I uploaded the video but it doesn't say where the file is posted.
