Why? / How?

  • “YouTube” is a FREE hosting site

  • It is EASY to use (just ask any teenager…)

  • It accommodates large model simulation files: up to 2 GB in size, up to 10 minutes in length

  • Good resolution, HighDef available:

    1280 x 720 (16x9 HD) & 640 x 480 (4:3 SD)

  • No need to carry around large files on thumb drives to install, all you need is an active internet online connection


File formats to upload l.jpg
File Formats to Upload

  • Windows Media Video (.WMV)

  • .3GP (cell phones)

  • .AVI (windows) typically used in model simulations like VISSIM, TRANSIMS, etc…

  • .MOV (mac)

  • .MP4 (ipod/psp)

  • .MPEG

  • .FLV (adobe flash)

  • .MKV (h.264)


Avi file processor l.jpg
*.avi File Processor

  • Many processors are available

  • Aurigma AVI processor is available for free download at:

    http://www.sharewareconnection.com/aurigma-avi-processor.htm

  • You can write *.avi files yourself

  • Enumerate frames, save as JPEG

  • You can add sound track

  • It’s almost like making a cartoon



Usage applications l.jpg
Usage & Applications

Is it safe? YES, as it is password-protected, no one can “mess” with your site & files…..unless you get hacked!

It can be used at public meetings, so long as the hosting site’s firewall allows social networking websites


Conclusion lessons learned l.jpg
Conclusion / Lessons Learned

  • It is only a tool

  • It can be used to convey complex model results into an animation format to the public, MPO/COG Board members, etc.

  • It is only an end-result, and the very last step of what can be a long and data intensive micro-simulation process
