Upload it? Create the movie, pick the file on the upload page of youtube and wait. If your upload speed is limited you'd be better off to encode the clip with Divx or Xvid first.

Encode it with Divx or Xvid and if that doesn't reduce the filesize enough you have to split it up. There are several free avi or mpeg split programs on the internet and here is one:

That would be a horrible experience just as playing Crysis at 15-20fps would also be a horrible experience. I understand that crysis is smoother than most other games at lower fps but Im sorry, I have to draw the line somewhere and the minimum is 30fps for me in crysis. I just do not understand how you guys are cool with 15-20fps in a first person shooter but if it doesnt bother you then more power to ya.

I was actually able to play the demo very well on my rig at 1680X1050 using Vista 64 with the DX9 path with most options on high and a few on very high with the ini tweaks. Minimum fps for me was 32 and that was during heavy firefights and when wondering around in the jungle it was anywhere from 40 to as high as 50fps.

This was with no aa or af though but the game really doesnt need it to great.

For me Crysis is smooth in the 25FPS range, less then 20 it is choppy for me. DX10 stalls out or crashes, DX9 is fine. Amazing graphics, wish I could use AA, using AA tanks the game to a slide show. Still getting high 20's at 1920x1200 with everything on high except shadows and post processing makes the game fun and very impressive.

Played FarCry 3 times, once on 9700Pro, once on 6800GT and once on my GTX. Each time I could up the graphics, with GTX it was 1920x1200, everything maxed, 16x AA 16xAF and it was beautiful. Crysis blows Farcry out of the water with my current settings. Next generation I will play again and probably after that. So very much agreed, this game will last awhile and get played a number of times.

I'm going to throw this game out there, and you can agree with me or not on this.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64. The original game ran at 20 fps constantly on the N64. No one ever complained, moaned, or groaned about that... In fact, there are still people in this world that will swear up and down that it is the most brilliant action/puzzle game of all time.

So why is Crysis any different in this situation? The game is flatout brilliant in just about every aspect except for high performance on new hardware... so what? The debate is over whether 20 fps is an acceptable frame rate for a first person shooter. I think that in this case, it is acceptable. The high action sequences are sparse, and most of this game takes on a "Splinter Cell" approach to achieving mission objectives.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again. Crysis is a rare exception to the "minimum 30 fps" rule because the gameplay is so unique. On most games, if the framerate were around 20 fps, I would probably be saving up money to buy new hardware so I wouldn't have to experience that anymore. In this case, though, I think 20 fps is an acceptable performance threshold for Crysis.

Sorry mate. We will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

I'm with MadPistol on this one. I'm running it at 1920x1200 with the DX9 tweaks to enable DX features and stuff. It runs at about 23 - 30 fps and it's 100% playable. You don't notice the low framerate at all. Normally I can't stand anything below ~40 fps but Crysis is an exception. I only notice the low frame rate when it drops below 20fps. At first I was trying to get the FPS over 30 to make it playable but then I realized it didn't need to be that high for it to be completely playable.

As for your rig, something is wrong. I can play Crysis at 1280x800 (my monitors native res is 1680x1050, but if I keep to the 16:10 aspect ratio lower resolutions look fine) with 4xAA, 16xAF, and all in-game options set to "High" and it never dips below 20fps. It remains *very* playable. So something is definitely wrong with your setup...
Hmmm...tell me, are you always play games while you are online? (EX: keep msn running, downloading files ), if yes, do you keep your anti-virus software running? (like firewall, backdoor block, etc....)
I ask this question because I'm doing those things while I'm playing games, don't know if it will affect my performance badly.

If you're running a Dual or Quad Core processor (like a Core 2 or Phenom), you probably won't even notice the extra programs running in the background.
