I have ran into an issue with the final FMV, hwindjet.avi , which does not decode with M35's program.  I have used PSXMC to decode it for now in case I am forced to use it but I would rather use the new and superior decoder.

Also, rather bizarrely, eidos used Cvid codec with fship2.avi
=================

Due to a bug in M35's program, I will probably have to release the FMV on its own at a later time.  I will release part 2 now, and then in a few days I will release the FMV on its own.  I will then add all videos to 1 installer.  It was less than 1% chance of this happening and sadly it did.  Of all the FMV, I chose that one last and it was the one which was broken inside the program.

Ridiculous.

Part 2: 

https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0ByaJayPcq6ieYTkyZDczNGMtZjFlYi00MzNlLWFkNjQtMjY0OTM0MjRlNzE4&export=download&hl=en

I will delete this in 48-72 hours.  Then begin work on main installer.

Part 2 is missing 1 FMV which will be up for download when the bug is fixed.

Great, Disc 2 has the best FMVs  :D

Thanks for the hard work you've put into these FMVs, they really do make the game a lot better.

Yeah, I love that one. All the Weapons leaving the crater is just epic.

I noticed you also updated the Square intro video, that's always a plus (too bad about the Eidos video though).

The eidos video is already updated, I did it a while back for Team Avalanche :)  I will add a separate download link to it sometime.  Well, if you install TA, it probably adds it anyway.

Also, M35 has corrected the bug so I will sort the final vid now.

The problem with that Eidos intro is that it has Team Avalanche logo in it. In case you're interested, I've converted the higher res intro from FF8 in a lossless codec and added FF7 audio (Video lasts longer than it though). Maybe you can do something with it (Like adding a fade-out effect to match the end of the audio, other than upscaling the video, of course).

Yeah I have the FF8 one, but to be honest, it is such a dinky little logo that I will stick with what I have done.  I will use yours.  Afterall pretty much everyone will be using TA.

I'm up for being another mirror. I got a server you guys can use for this, send me a PM for the info. Project looks great. Some scenes don't look to well with the deblocking method you used, but there's not to much that can be done about that. Still it's far better then the default PC videos. I hate megaupload and rapidshare, so I try to make it so people don't have to use those whenever I can.

I didn't use any deblocking.  All artifacts are there in the original.

Released.  Place all files in the same place and run FMVRes.exe found in Main.

See main post in this thread.

For those who downloaded the standalone part 2 pack, it was missing this FMV:

Also note, the next revision of Aali's driver fixes the sync issues.

I will delete standalone packs and this FMV in 3 days time.

You're right pyrozen. by the way, I have a problem with these new FMV's. The videos are very slow during the game and even lose the sound. In my app.log appear this message: INFO: slow output format from video codec mpeg4; 0.
is there any way to fix it? thanks for your great job! :)

There is no such thing as greatpit2.

As for gelnica.avi, it is there.

Aali's driver will probably fix these issues on next release.  It certainly fixes the sync issue.  Perhaps it is just the speed of your computer?

Eidoslogo was left out because I have already updated it for team Avalanche.

Thanks :)

Very nice mod. The PC version has always bugged me because of the lackluster video quality compared to the original.

My only problems with it are the sound Issue, but as you said that is something to be fixed by later versions of the OpenGL driver.
