    Just fought Myxkion in the bottom of despise. What a fight at that. Myxkion is one bad mofo. Anyhow check out the videos they show his special attacks and the stuff that happens when he dies.

    Why not just put the video on Youtube or another video sharing website? No one is going to download that RAR for fear of viruses and keyloggers.
     
  3. Well, I did download it (I like taking risks...kind of)...stuck it in a Virtual Machine, opened it and scanned it...seems clean. Contains 2 AVI files.

    Videos play. Pretty nice battle scenes. :)

    For one mediafire scans everything for viruses to ensure no one gets something they did not intend.

    Second youtube in my opinion is trash. They re-encode the video and it distorts and becomes low quality and small resolution. My videos are as crisp and clean as if you were actually playing the game and are in hi resolution. I also compress them in a rar so that the download size is as small as if it were compressed with a codec like you tube uses yet you do not lose all the quality in the process.

    I hope that answers the question of why they are the way they are because I know your not the only one who wondered but yeah there are reasons for why I did it this way.

    On another note I have been covering the event like this since the beginning and there have been quite a few downloads of my various videos so by now I would hope I have some bit of clean rep going for me lol.

    It's also called scanning files you download before actually opening them. But some people don't think beforehand. *shrug*

    True and a good point. Mediafire scans them but you can always scan them with your own virus scanner before unzipping the files to ensure your safe.

    A compressed file such as a .rar or .zip can never cause harm unless you open them without making sure there is no threat. If you scan a compressed file and it says it contains a virus you can just delete it and no harm will come from it however if you just go opening it you put yourself at risk so always double check and scan any compressed files to make sure your safe before opening them.

    Youtube is in the process of upgrading their video quality and it is getting better.

    If you want the best quality check out www.veoh.com. That is where I upload my UO videos.

    Thanks :) I use snagit8 but I am getting ready to upgrade to snagit9 now that it's out.

    I cannot get fraps to run with uo it client crashes every time and my guess is that uo does not allow benchmarking? I think fraps would be a much easier way to capture if I could get it to work but snagit does a nice job for now.

    Yeah I may check that out. I originally wanted to upload the videos in a way that people would not have to download files but like i said I hadn't found anything that would handle it well without distorting it really bad and so on.

    Yes it was the archers were a tremendous help thanks :)

    Better safe than sorry I have been hacked before and it really sucked. So I still advise everyone to be safe and scan anything you download that is related to UO because there are to many people out there waiting to steal everything you worked to get.
