The trailer of Kazbek is extremely smooth - that is def. a good choice.

Give me a place where I can place 500mb file. After you can crop what you want on it.

Having an auto playing video on the website doesnt sounds like a good idea

It won't make sound - just an animation sequence like BAR has:

You can't put a 5mb+ file as a background video on the main page...

@Brutus5000 can you explain why its a 5mb+ cap for the main page. whats the limitation ? the clip being use was ripped from the C&C website for testing and its 8.7Mb

@rowey i think it should be light to load it faster

Yeah, you don't wanna have a mobile user suddenly see 500mb disappear from their packet.
Though it's entirely possible to get this video 2 min video to like 30-40MB. Though I still think this is gonna be too much.

the current clip was using is 20 seconds and is only 8.8mb wich to me doesn't seem that much of a streach

You need to make sure it works on mobile. I’ve had videos like this cause all sorts of issues like completely freezing the page or crashing the browser or like others said just eating a ton of data. Don’t assume that you know what is “ok” for someone else’s data usage. Just because your mobile plan can handle it doesn’t mean that others can.

You also need to make sure that it scales properly on small screens and doesn’t make the whole website derp out. You can use CSS to load different resources depending on the screen size, so I’d recommend either loading a lower res version of the video or maybe not loading a video at all on mobile.

It still has 7,5MB
So if you're browsing on a phone and eats that much data for news, in our case for a webpage. I'd rather have a simple image
