How are we supposed to register this? I got no information for this in the download, a single file only and thought it was self registered. Today, I see it is asking for a User ID and Registration code and telling me I have a trial version.

Jake,

There are two files in the download: Setup.exe and Readme.txt. If you are missing the Readme.txt file, re-download from the GOTD link. The Readme.txt file contains the User ID and Key to use.

OdGuy is right, it is nice to understand what this sw does. If anybody wants to put directly playable videos on his/her page, this seems to be a good tool. But who needs this today? I not...
In any case an interesting sw with functionality not so often offered here on gotd, so thumbs up.

There are options as well for exporting the video as WebM, OGG, and flash (which isn't HTML5 and is deprecated, but perhaps it's nice to have for another few months).

Flash is needed for browsers that do not support HTML5

It is useful w.r.t. this offering to understand what they are talking about. Wikipedia helps:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video

"The HTML5 specification introduced the video element for the purpose of playing videos,[1] partially replacing the object element. HTML5 video is intended by its creators to become the new standard way to show video on the web, instead of the previous de facto standard of using the proprietary Adobe Flash plugin, though early adoption was hampered by lack of agreement as to which video coding formats and audio coding formats should be supported in web browsers. "

So apparently this produces a web page with the element around your video. Now all you need is a server hosting your web page apparently.

Droo, so are you saying mp4 web optimised is = to HTML5 video? I honestly don't know.

Reply   |   Comment by Doc  –  4 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Doc, MP4 can be used in an HTML5 page in a Video object for CERTAIN web browsers but NOT all HTML5 browsers. Some browsers require WebM while others OGG

I tried to convert an approximately 1 GB 1080p MP4 file to "HTML5". It seems to just wrap the video in an HTML video playing wrapper -- so, it's useful if you need that sort of thing. It appears to be ready-for-deployment on a server, with a minimal working HTML file.

It did take an hour, however, to seemingly only reduce the file by about 150 MB (and I specified the file output to be MP4 as well) in addition to this HTML5 wrapping. So, not necessarily the quickest. The quality seems slightly poorer, even at "high" quality, but certainly not deficiently poorer; the quality would be sufficient for most users' needs, including my own.

There are options as well for exporting the video as WebM, OGG, and flash (which isn't HTML5 and is deprecated, but perhaps it's nice to have for another few months). I'm guessing they similarly convert and place the input video in their respective wrappers.

All in all, it's a neat program, though a little slow. If you want to place videos on your server/website with more personal control than going through YouTube or Microsoft OneDrive or something akin, you may as well get it today.

Riel, where the input format is the same as the selected HTML5 video format it should optionally offer copy instead of always enforcing decoding and then lossy re-encoding... after all if you have the same video dimensions in the output and no changes to audio and are happy with the MP4 HTML5 Video object output why waste resources and time degrading the video by lossily re-encoding it to an arbitary random bitrate that you have to either take a chance on or try all 3 settings to of Low Medium or High quality to see what is the best compromise on size and quality.
What makes a Video file an HTML5 Video is the HTML5 Video object player source snippet and only requires conversion IF the video file is in the wrong format or is say a UHD video dimension when you only need 800x480 for a website posting and are happy to let the HTML5 player upscale the video if it is switched into full screen mode on a FHD monitor.

I would suggest using the source video if the format is right and dimensions are right and just use the generated HTML5 pages player snippet in your real websites HTML5 player.

Mp4 web optimized is a standard way
