I recently uploaded N.V.P. 2 but for some reason when I play it through the site, it's really jumpy and lower quality than the original version on youtube. Is there an alternative video up-loader that I can use to get better quality? I've seen other videos on here from youtube and they seem to play quite smoothly.

Hello
I understamnd your concerm with the video quality. YouTube is notorious for terrible quality reduction. Nothing that you did wrong. Although perhaps you needed to compress it to make it into a smaller file size to put on YouTube? Anyway....

I compiled a list of better video hosting sites which I have listed below:
1.http://blip.tv/ - a cool site with great video quality using Flash 8 (unfortunately the file size is rather small)
File length limitations: None
File size limits: 100MB

2.http://labs.divx.com/WebPlayer- Supports HD video, has large upload size
File length limitations: None
File size limits: 2GB
User storage size: unlimited

3.http://revver.com - well designed site, can make money from sharing others’ videos, uses Flash 8 formats
File length limitations: None
File size limits: 100MB
User storage size: unlimited

4.http://www.veoh.com/ -very easy to use, TV options, uses Flash 8
File length limitations: None
File size limits: none
User storage size: unlimited

5.http://video.msn.com/video.aspx?mkt=en-us -good design, syncs with MSN messenger, uses Flash 8, no full screen mode though sad
File length limitations: None
File size limits: 100MB
User storage size: unlimited

6.http://www.vimeo.com/-easy to use, option to make your videos available to download, uses flash 8
File length limitations: None
File size limits: 250MB
User storage size: 250MB/week

7.http://www.jumpcut.com/-video and photo sharing, flash 8
File length limitations: None
File size limits: 100MB
User storage size: unlimited


I hope that this helps to answer your questions!

Unfortunately none of DVstudio's links are going to be much use if you want the video in the FXhome cinema.

NVP2 seems to play fine here in Firefox on Vista. What are you using to view the page?

I played it through Firefox and Safari. Just looked grainier and jumpy in places in comparison to the original version on youtube. It's not a major problem, it's only an old film I re-edited to get some feedback on. Just wanted to know for my next film.
Cheers

The FXhome cinema only allows YouTube links and directly hosted links.

You can find YouTube at http://www.youtube.com where you can sign up for an account and find out lots more information about how to use their services.

You don't seem to own any FXhome products, so you won't be able to put anything into the cinema.
