    ASP.Net Web App For Video Uploading

    hi
    i have developed a web app ASP.net (VB) which the user uses to upload a video taken from the smartphone and will be uploaded and another web app to view the videos.

    now my prob. is most of the smartphone camera video r set to high resolutions and uploading this video would take lots of time and data to upload.

    is there any way i can reduce the size of the video before uploading

    i am saving the video in a folder on the server and saving the link to the database.
    pls. guide.
    Thanks in advance

    In order to reduce the size of the video BEFORE uploading, that would have to happen on the phone itself. Given that your app is on the web server that the video is being uploaded to, not the phone that it is uploaded from, that would be quite a feat. The only part of your app that is executed on the phone is the JavaScript code, and that's not going to be preprocessing video files on the local machine. You'd need to actually have a native app installed on the phone to do the preprocessing and it could then upload the result via a web service. If your users are stupid enough to upload a huge file and it takes ages then that's kinda their fault. Maybe just put a warning on your site about it. You might even check the size of the file before upload and warn if it is over a particular size.

    You can also do it server side.
    Then after the upload you recompress the uploaded file.
    That's done be Facebook, Youtube and probably many others.
