Can you tell me the formula to figure the relative or approximate (since these things are dynamic) time/transfer? Such as, how long would a one hour show @ high quality take to upload assuming an upload rate of ~30K (or 256k upstream)? And the differences between the other qualities.

Sorry if this isn't worded right, but I'm no math major. I think you get the idea.

Remeber you can always multiply by 1...

assume 3GB for HQ show

times unit conversion (1024KB/GB)

divide by the transfer rate (30KB/s)

divide by another unit conversion (60s/minute)

divide by yet another unit conversion (60min/hour)

voila you should have your number in hours... (I don't have a calculator).

Cheers

As an approximate rule of thumb
Code:
Code:
``````2266
#hrs for 1hr std =   -----------------
upstream bit rate``````
Multiply by 2 for medium

Multiply by 3 for high

This factors in 875MB/hr std and 90% of nominal upstream bit rate available

I can't tell you how much they squeezed w/o knowing the show, but I

can tell you how much of the commercials I watched.
