Hi all,

Can anyone please tell which video files are best for video playback on a website, for both Mac and Windows. Is Mpeg 4 the best way to go for Mac? What for PC? Speed is of the essence for playback.

Thanks in anticipation.
Russ

Use Java, this works with both and you don't need to install a player. It also auto detects conection speed and streams accordingly. If you use an application called FORscene from Forbidden Technologies you can upload your content , edit it online and publish it to web or mobile.

Hi Forbidden Technologies
Your profile website does include a lot of new 'concept' ideas that will no doubt take us here a while to get our heads around.

However phrases like "sending a cheque for £20 made payable to Forbidden Technologies plc" are more readily understandable. Caveat emptor ;)

Your website seems more appropriate for drumming up investor interest in a dotcom enterprise. Would you please guide me to the relevant pages where I can try to understand in technical and/or end-user terms what you are trying to offer. Maybe even an independant review.
Thank you.

Hi Paul,

The product we talked about is FORscene and was reviewed in Showreel a couple of months ago. It's designed for broadcasters and production companies but also has benefits to companies such as yours. We are always interested in customer feedback on products and pricing strategy.
The app can be viewed at www.forscene.net
