I have one video file that I want to put on my website but I want it to play with dialup and broadband connections. The broadband verison is 30MB and the dial-up is 10MB. The video itself is 19 minutes long. What is the best way to make this video available to play off my website? I put the broadband version on there and it works..if you have a broadband connection. However, the dial-up version stops and starts. Should I change the format, go with streaming services, etc.?
I would create two links. One link goes to the smaller version of the file that is either a smaller resolution or slower frame rate. One link could go to the broadband version.
You don't need to split your large version into smaller chunks. The reason it starts and stops on slower connections is that the dialup connection cannot keep up with the video rate and stream it at the speed it gets it.
