If you target audience will use a dial up connection, then you should consider the SWF file size to be small, I do not know a standard, but I guess not more than 200-300 k. And use a preloaded in the first of it.
The large WAV files helps increasing the file size, but it is not the only reason. You have to tell your client to consider the size in the files he or she sends. And you can optimize your file and idea storyboard to keep the size small.
You said video, then mentioned WAV and MPG formats which are audio. In either case surely you will want to stream it, which is still tough for dialups, but nobody will be waiting for 48MB to arrive before it plays.
He keeps changing his mind. First he wants a video, then when realizing his 10 minute video is too long, decided audio only. Now he's still at 48 MB. Not sure if it's worth even trying to make into a SWF??? Even with a preloader, people on dial up will grow moss waiting for it to load....
Thanks for your help!
I love it when dopes have impossible demands
"I want you to create a full size 10 minute video that loads quickly and is smooth for dial-up users."
Maybe when you're finished with that job you can turn water into wine or part the red sea for me. Tell your boss to get a clue, just don't say it like that ;)
Nickels you are beautiful... thanks for the laugh...
I originally told him to upload the video to google video... guess what? It's too big for google too!
No miracles here....
