Need to find a video file

I have to create a program which will include the following:

A sound file (less than 100K)

 A video file (less than 100K)

The CreditRoll class applet

I have the sound file and already created the CreditRoll class applet BUT can anyone tell me where I can find a good video file?   I have been looking on and off for a week now and can't find one...........
Thank you for the help..........

You may have to edit them down to size but here's some good sources:

What exactly do you mean by "good"?

There are plenty of web sites out there where you can acquire all sorts of "good" video clips, some of them "really good" if you know what I mean, (nudge nudge wink wink say no more...)

Does it matter what the video clip is of? Any particular subject matter?
What kind of file format?

If you're using Windows, there's probably a small video clip in your C:\Windows folder callled Clock.avi. It's under 100k, and is also quite hideously ugly, ideal for use in annoying PowerPoints, etc. There are also some video clips that come with MS Office, for example.

If you want something stupidly entertaining, you might want to try this site...

billmercer and MHenry,

there are a lot of sites and I have been serching through hundreds of video clips but there are none that you are able to save in order to use for your personal reasons, as I need.  They do not allow you to save them, unless I am doing something wrong. I am very new at this......

"Does it matter what the video clip is of? Any particular subject matter?
What kind of file format?"

Does not matter what the video clip is of  (has to be clean:)..........no particular subject matter..............whatever file format is best.  The only requirement was
"less than 100K".

Try the Clock.avi file I mentioned before. It's 81K, and is pretty non-offensive. All it shows is a clock slowly ticking time.

It's location in Windows XP is C:\Windows\clock.avi
Or you can do a file search to find it.

yes, I did see that and that is what I will probably end up using if I can't find anything else.  Thank you.

Roni,

The site I listed, http://www.open-video.org/ has videos under the creative commons license. That means, for the most part, you are free to do whatever you want with them. You can read more at their site but for the most part, as long as you don't resell the videos, you can make projects for work and/or personal use.

Best,

MH

MH,

I found a great one on that site to use but even though they are free - in order to get it for free it is asking you first to purchase Quick Time Player or you cannot save the clips...............

Roni,

What it's telling you is you need Quicktime to view the file. You can download it for free from Apple.com. Of course, there is an upgrade version available for purchase but you don't need to purchase anything, just use the free version.

As to the movie file, right underneath the picture of the video is a download link. Just right-click on the download link, then left-click on "Save Target As" (assuming you're using Internet Explorer). Now you can choose to save the file anywhere on your hard drive.

Best,

MH

Gotta love the software business. Only here can huge corporations use sleazy used car dealer tactics with impunity.
