The video upload process takes several steps to get the video from your camera or dvd to your computer. You will need software to get your games from DVD to your computer. We have found this free software from Free Studio to do a great job for all of your video needs. If you do not have software that will convert your DVD's to a computer friendly format we recommend downloading the free software here.
We have a put together a User Guide that will guide you through the process of extracting your video from your DVD and converting it to an FLV format for easy and quick uploading to Hoops Lab. We strongly recommend converting your games to FLV format to reduce the size of the video file. Full games tend to be very large files and can be too large to upload to the server if they are not converted to FLV.
We have also included video tutorials on the site that can guide you through the upload process.
We also advise not to use spaces or abnormal characters in your video file names. These characters will cause problems during our conversion. Characters such as !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, ), +, =, periods, and spaces should not be used in your file names.
We are always available for support. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you through the process.
We also offer DVD upload services if you prefer the convenience of having our team upload games for you. Our prices are very reasonable and we have several options and packages to choose from. You can find more information here.
