Sometime last week I finished making video clips  for Jurassic Park . It’s not a hard task given today’s technology. What is problem is my ISP. It’s been a royal pain for me to get online and place them on the site. There are so many people on during the summer the internet slows to a crawl throughout the day. I guess it doesn’t matter if you have dial-up or broadband, the same result occurs. I’m sure you all know someone that it happens to constantly or maybe it happens to you as well.
Anyway, I’m pleased to announce that we’ve released 14 high quality Jurassic Park video clips , 15 to 50 seconds long, at a resolution of 416 x 224. As we were making these clips it was decided upon to use the XviD codec  over the normal MPEG Layer-1/2 compression that we’ve used in the past. The end result from using the XviD codec showed excellent compression while maintaining superb quality in an MPEG Layer-4 format. Even more entertaining are the file sizes– they’re extremely small. Of the clips created the largest file size is 4.88 mb! This is a dream for dial-up users, and a 2 second wait for those using broadband.
More is due to follow in the next couple of weeks before we all head off to school again. If there is anything you wish was on the site (but isn’t) or you have something for the site, please contact us ! We’re always here working to enhance the Jurassic Park community .
