About Our Movies

The Gallery is the members area. All movies in the Gallery are .mp4 files encoded with the H.264 video codec. This is a universal high-quality format, playable on all computers and on most smartphones, tablets and flatscreen TVs. All movies in the Gallery are encoded the same way, no matter how old they are. There's no clutter with various file formats or codecs.

You can test the playability of the Gallery movies by using the short sample movies on this page here. If you can play these sample movies you will be able to play the movies in the Gallery too, as both are encoded exactly the same way. Of course the movies in the Gallery are much longer (around 10 minutes, while the sample movies are only 30 seconds).

Each movie in the Gallery is available in High Quality and Medium Quality and Low Quality, so you can choose whatever suits your internet speed or playing device. Please note that the High Quality movies have the suffix _hq, the Medium Quality movies have the suffix _mq and the Low Quality movies have the suffix _lq.

High Quality

The High Quality movies are intended for computers, tablets and flatscreen TVs. They have the same picture size as the original footage, i.e. they are available either in the size of HD (1280 x 720) or the size of PAL (768 x 576) or the size of NTSC (640 x 480). They are encoded with a variable datarate to get a consistent high image quality. They run with 50 fps or 60 fps (full frames per second) providing smooth motions.

Here are three short sample movies in High Quality and in three picture sizes (HD, PAL, NTSC).
