Is the 300 MB file size limit too low for videos?

Alright time for another thread and another discussion..

It seems issue I am having is with file size and in fact this deals with more like the software I use more than anything to produce a vido..'

first off I use Handbreake (I know I can't afford the more professional stuff (Not yet0 but still when I do a video and want to render it in good quality (and this is what I've learned from other video producers in the past) you might want to render it in "S2 pass' formatting with a bit rate of no lower than 9000 bps..

Now this is okay with me, I don';t mind rendering some of that stuff that way (It seems that a lot of videos that I produce can fit in the required 300 MB limit that is set down by the Iwara site..

However sometimes you are rendering a Good video and you don't want to edit out anything and well, you come up a little long (Like tonight I'm rendering the latest video Idid and it came out to 363 MB.. and we all know what happens when you pass the 300 MB limit it never gets posted..

So in the end, your work suffers and you feel dejected..

Hence I am curious as to why such a lot file size .. 300 MB.. that's really helping cut down on creativity of new and upcoming videographers and it kind of isn't an issue (Though If there is Betteer free software out there please let me know)

But why the 300 MB Limit after all this site has 10's if not hundreds of videos a motnh and a lot of them are under 300MB.

but shouldn't this file limit be raised to say 400 or even 500 MB (Some of the more well known sites where I find MMD videos have videos that are up to 1.5 Gb in size.. and all professional high quality..

So is Iwara's 300 Limit too low? you tell me.

Yes It's not enough. I am now using program Movavi Video Converter. To reduce the size of the video to 280mb. Before that i didn't know about this program and had problems with video rendering in terms of size.

In MMD I always render my videos with the free lossless UtVideo codec. This creates a rather large file, so I always need to compress it afterward. For that I use another free program called XMedia Recode. In that program I set the MP4 bit rate settings to 3000 - 4000, and use 2 pass average bit rate. Doing a second pass greatly improves the quality of the video, and lets you get away with using lower bit rates. The lower the bit rate, the smaller the file size.

300 MB is sufficient with UTvideo and re-enoding. The problem I currently have is that I can't reliably upload more than about 50 MB to this site before the upload terminates, and it seems some other users have this same issue as well. I suspect it's a pathing issue, but the fact is I can't even get close to 300 MB uploaded as it is. Unless the the internet issue gets resolved somehow, I don't know how I'd ever be able to exceed that.

for anything above 1080p 300mb is definetely not enough.300mb is good for a 6 minutes video if you calculate 50mb per minute. But only at resolution 720p and 1080p. 50mb for a 1 minute video at 1440p is no good. Most videos here are below 6 minutes and have a max resolution of 1080p so there is no problem, but for the future we want higher resolution and it would be also nice if we can upload 10 minutes videos without quality cuts. so yea the limit need to rise up between 500mb and 1000mb

I know software "AVC any video converter" and "Avidemux" them make your files suitable to any size :)

The only thing which I don't appreciate is that a one minute video has a 300mb limit and a 5 minute video has a 300mb limit which privileges small videos.

The size limit should align on the video length.

2018-12-30 22:51

>which privileges small videos
that's not how things work.
its 300mb. period.

I embed stuff from Google Drive to get around the 300 MB size limit. 300 MB is fine for 720p@60FPS or 1080p@30FPS or very short videos, but on a normal length (3-6 min) video, you have to use terrible encoding settings to make it fit if you want to use 1080p@60FP.

It's not an issue of "is it enough" or not. It's all we can really afford to provide.

If the file size of 300 megs is to small for you your best rational is build your own website and you will realize web site rent is not CHEAP and the delusions of making videos over 300megs and you paying for it will burst your dream bubble. If you make a website I wish you good luck and prosperity in your website venture.

2019-01-10 22:02

300 megs is enough unless you're making very long videos. It takes such a long time for them to upload, and Iwara's upload system is kind of garbage at the moment anyway. Maybe make a 300 meg preview video and offer the full video in the description? If your video is so close to 300 megs, you could probably change your settings. There would be a slight quality loss, but I doubt most people would mind.

2019-01-11 01:23

Have you seen the 95 meg MP4 anime videos they are almost BD 720p quality at 24 mins so hi quality videos CAN be made under 300 meg with good encoders. I use AVI Raw 4k encoding and get 100 gigs on my HD re-encode to 250megs 580p at a loss of 10 percent not bad for Iwara. Only bad thing is sometimes The encoder used to recode uploaded to Iwara goes from 250 to 150 megs 360p from Iwara's end. But not lately.They stay at 250meg 580p+ almost EXHQ YaaaaaY My 2 cents

>Have you seen the 95 meg MP4 anime videos they are almost BD 720p quality at 24 mins

A reasonable size for a 720p@24FPS anime episode is 500-800 MB. 95 MB is hardly enough for the audio.

2019-01-11 19:29

Anime episodes are also usually 22-25 minutes long.

wonder if the cap could be raised, if to shill your own patreon you'd need contribute to iwaras patreon. since pretty much everyone and their grandma are doing it, would make one big happy circle jerk.

Awaclus if your using the old codecs. the new ones that you have to pay for can give better results than those shitty free ones. The newest offer 4k output but the output is 100 gigs at full blown blu ray 5 min video. People that want larger than 300megs can go to pay an outrageous fee then link to Iwara but would that realty be worth it? I know I cant afford that. People that live at home with mommy and daddy can or if you live off people. Or use your Youtube account till you get caught and banned for upping R18 fucking vids like I lost mine like many people here did. LOL

1920 x 1080 If outputting at 60 fps, I think that it will fit in "high image quality" sufficiently within 300 MB. Is not there a problem with codecs and settings when outputting? With H.264 which is the old standard, there is an output setting to fit within 300 MB with Aviutl etc. when it can be contained within 300 MB. (It will automatically adjust image quality etc.) Well if you use H.265 it is almost unnecessary, though.

DNNinetales, would you like to tell people what the codecs are?

Oh, by the way, Pornhub had a 2 GB file size cap. It's now at least 8 GB. Just make a smaller version for Iwara and link to a bigger version there.

I'd go with Pr0nb0tz's solution. He/she recommended XMedia Recode to me last year when I was asking around for a converter and I got all my videos well under 300MB at 7000 Bitrate (give 3000-4000 a try too) without any loss of quality I could notice.

nah iwara cant effort more than 300 mb. Lately the site has become so slow on a regular basis, it takes me like 50 minutes to download a 300 mb video, it wont get any better soon.

2019-02-17 04:30

I think it's OK. As Pr0nb0tz said, using UtVideo lossless codecs to render your video greatly reduces the .AVI file size, and compressing it using XMedia Recode, AviUTL or even Handbrake does result in a pretty good quality video < 300 MB, at least in my eyes.

2019-02-17 05:17

I have been experimenting with XMedia Recode, and I found that these settings work well for compressing videos to well under 300 MB with no significant loss in quality. I can also play the videos on my Playstation 3.

Honestly I think it should be 400mb. For me 1min30sec 1080p 60fps 12k bitrate, +AAAC, MMD takes up an average of 125mb encoded with H265. Most MMD's are 3mins, so for excellent quality 3min MMD's 250mb is required. The problem arises if they are over 3mins, then there is no encoder that will help you out. Going under 10k bitrate you really start to notice the quality drop, it is even worse if you use 30fps. So personally I would push the bar to 400mb, allowing 5min FHD 60 fps good quality MMD's.
