No kiddin guys i downloaded one of these and it was great. You know that bit in star wars where luke gets back to the farm to find his aunt n uncle dead..... he asumes the storm troopers were looking for the stolen droids doesnt he ah well you see, they didnt even know about em - well this squad didnt anyway.

To aid the bandwidth challenged among us, i was hoping KEVLAR could put his video prowess to this file:
http://cgi.theforce.net/theforce/theater/download.cgi?ID=06

And turn it into a much smaller DivX version - its currently in quicktime (.mov) format and takes ages for your average 56k'er

But since the new movie is upon us i thought what a great way to have a laff at the empire and welcome the new movie into our minds

whadday say Kevlar - fancy a crack at it - Its funny as hell

Oh ya and by the way *waves hand suspiciously* -----

"These arnt the droids youre looking for !" -----

"He can go about his business" -----

"NOW SOD OFF !" ----

"Ahem i mean, move along, move al... ARGH MY FOOT YOU DAMN VANDALS ......!!!!!"

hehehe - can u do the honars kev everyone deserves to see this

Sure, I can import the .mov and give it a shot. I think this is the one I have. Is this the TopCops theme?

One thing I have figured out .mov has the worst compression of any format so even straight mpg would probably be better. But I'll give Divx a shot.

Kev, I don't think it's required... I'm on DSL, granted, but it took less than 2 minutes to load. I don't forsee a wait longer than 15 min for anyone, with Matrixes link above...

Some of us are on 56k Mex - remember us underdogs lol :p the lowly dialup ppl - if we see as much a saving as we did on the ps2 video its should make the movie a hell of a lot faster to download for us.

Btw in case you haddnt done the math - 27 megs is almost 3 hrs worth of download for us lol - damn i wish i had broadband !!!

Also - Hey Matrix..... IMHO - it won't take 3 hours..... most people on the board have prolly seen it anyway. I know I have.

Ok, it took some doing, but I could only knock 10MB off the originaly file size.
Went from about 29MB to 18.4MB

But 10 Meg is about 45 minutes or so, of download time over a modem, or there abouts.

Scroll to bottom of the page.

Troops Divx Movie 18.4MB

3 Megs = 35 minutes on my modem

a 10 Meg decrease saves over an hour and a half.
