I'm "old school" and have always thought it totally RIDICULOUS the amount of memory used by modern phones and other devices to make just one picture - usually several Megabytes :eek2:
Nobody (except professional photographers) needs pictures of such high definition - you definitely don't need it for a screenshot of a slot win!

Not so many years ago, memory used to be a very expensive and valuable resource - now it seems that no-one cares how much they use :(

So anyway - I reckon it takes me less than a minute to take a shot, paste it into Paint, reduce the width to 680 (I do this with all my shots) and save as JPEG. I know it's more tricky on phones, but it's simple on a PC.
None of my shots are over 200K.

Anyway - whatever. Peace & Love to all :thumbsup:

sure, but if we want to see a man beaten by his missus with a rolling pin couldnt we just read Andy Capp?

That was actually my first ever gamble in the seaside town near me (a place that hasn't changed in over 50 years - and as per the creepy show Castlerock, just round the corner as well), circa 1993/4.

Pretty sure it's the same machine as back then, with the chip out of it. Still play it when i go home - i love a compensated game.

So the video section's gone from the toolbar has it. Not to worry, I can upload it to Vocaroo and reformat it for CM
Hey why you don't try to upload your video in some streaming site: YT , VImeo, Metacafe....?, you could use the URL from these sites to show your videos here as well.

We mever had arcades in the sense you had there; in fact, the 1st of its sort I ever played was 20 years back on a ship between Eng and Paris (confused the Hell out of me, the weird pinball-style slot in that stuff happened up top and 'levels' and 'tracks')
Though, earliest online days, it was Track and Field Mouse for me

Because I don't want to? The point being the option was there before and now it's been removed. If I wanted 3 views for 2 minute clip I would have created a YT account years ago.

But if it's worth saving the £14.76 in annual bandwidth costs in the name of streamlining the site, then by all means

You have no idea what the reasons or the costs are. You really ought to try less piss in your tea, might improve your disposition immeasurably.

Later: apologies to goatie, that was unnecessary and uncalled for. I would've removed it but it's become part of the thread at this point and like everyone else I have to live with what I post.

Isn't just a Cost-Saving thing goat, just some pages aren't loading properly because these uploads, and this penalizes our Server Hosting Service. As I mentioned we're working on find some solution to this Video-Issue-thing.

Salut!

Check this Thread guys:
these uploads are affecting Thread loads e.g: https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/threads/video-game-clip-of-the-week.90182/#post-1080868

As you can check there, these Big Vid Uploads are affecting negatively our Server speed and affecting some other content areas as well.
Oops! We ran into some problems.
thats what I get on that link?

I understand the video links, but if you are auto resizing pictures, surely that will stop problems with big photos. Regarding bandwidth, if you are removing videos then that will save a MASSIVE amount of bandwidth/server space/speed, so could you not increase the filesize up to say 5mb for pictures, which should be enough for pretty much any picture.

5MB Per Picture?, that's quite colin, take a look this:

if you're using a compressed Image these 1MB should be enought.. we're not a Photography community.

I'm not sure who wrote those rough sizes but the RAW files I get from my Canon G7X are MUCH bigger than that, jpgs are well over those limits too, the list below are basic out the camera, no processing or anything done on them

2020-09-21 (2).png

My screenshots are well over 1mb too, all saved as jpgs

Anyway, was just giving an idea, obviously if you need them at 1mb, then you need them at 1mb :) I just think thats on the low side and will be off putting for people posting if they have to edit screenshots, especially using a phone.

You guys probably have a football pitch size screens. :)

Check this out:

This is the (uncompressed) image which size and dimensions are shown above.
1MB is almost four of such images.

I’d suspect the pages your referring to are the Brexit and COVID threads which are stuffed with attachements and really have no bearing
On the site subject matter of CM let’s leave the uploads to where they belong gambling related.

It would only take the handful of posters who think that posting endless and meaningless videos,memes and banners as if it is their main or only form of communicating then there would not be an issue. It is unhinged being so excessive
