Just as I promised. Majority of the videos I have been uploading are now in HD resolutions. They are roughly the same size as the SD ones in terms of MBs. This is good news!
Every now and then I'll be working on the quality the HD videos project, but so far they look very pretty.
I changed the code around drastically to adjust the frame rate of the videos. So, instead of forcing 30 FPS on every video, the server now adjusts the frame rate based on what's found in the video itself... In other words... 60 FPS is fully supported. Heck, even videos that are higher are supported. A good example is Auriga.
I added a little tag above the video descriptions that notify people of whether or not a video is in HD.
Lastly, I set up the server so it changes the variable bit rate of the video depending on the resolution (yes, I went back to 1 pass encoding).
What does this mean to you? Nothing at all. Everything is done transparently. All you would need to do is upload your video and the server does the rest. Depending on the resolution, the server will label the video as HD or SD. It'll automatically add the subtitles if you're using MKV.
I don't know how to make it any easier except to put anime characters on the site (which I plan to do!). Once I do that, then I may work on themes and manga support. Stay tuned until then.
