We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
But another solution that seems exciting would be to go with p5.js' native frame concept and split videos back into frames. But it would require a different sound management to fit the video (probably interesting but tedious to split the sound into chunks with crossfades), and most importantly: video compression must be amazingly efficient because I cannot seem to come even close in terms of size with separate images. As an example, a 3 seconds mp4 at 17 frames per second, size 640x360 takes 177 KB, the corresponding images in .jpg format (the smallest I manage) would take 1,5 MB, without the sound.
I'd love to have your opinions about this. cheers, gergely
