I had suggested a thread like this for a while and finally decided to make it myself as the Post Your Best Screenshots! thread is getting pretty cluttered with videos and I think videos deserve their own thread. For any of you out there who have videos but are unaware on how to host them there are many hosting services like photobucket, filefront and youtube to name a few. I found youtube the best myself due to being a popular site and having a good stream rate allowing uninterrupted play 99% of the time. Plus registration is quick and free and many sites/forums import embedded play from youtube. Now in fairness I suggest when posting your video that you use spoiler tags to limited download rates on people machines, one doesn't want to be swamped with downloading all the video at the same time. To do this here is the youtube and spoiler tag bbcode: video URL Note: Replace the < and > with [ and ] Now there are only two things I think the videos need to cover:
- Must be of Armada 1/2. Somewhere in the video there should be in game action/footage of the game, weather modded or not.
- Must be your own and not stolen from anyone else.
To capture video the best program that I and many others have found is FRAPS, it's low on system resources and does a fairly good job though does have problems at times. FRAPS show fps, record video game movies, screen capture software is the website to download it and there is a free version and a bought version. The free version adds a watermark and has a 30 second limit on recording while the bought version removes that restriction and watermarks.
Well I think that pretty much covers it, enjoy your video/trailer making and to start off the thread, as it would only be proper here are a couple from me: Yesteryears Trailer Feb 2008
Klingon Teaser Feb 2008
*EDIT: Can a mod fix the grammar error in the title (should be your not you). Thanks.

Thank you Jetfreak. :) I hope to see many additions by many members to this thread. Videos are becoming the in thing in Armada so it only makes sense to have a thread for them.
I like them both:) Wish the klingon one was a bit longer though bit it is a teaser:D
