Recently I had to create a website for a customer that contained quite a long video clip. After much searching around and some experimentation with wmv and divx I decided to use Flash. After all, if it’s good enough for YouTube…… Flash can achieve very good compression rates while maintaining “watchability” and was supported by a larger percentage of the population than any other format, which was exactly what I needed. The video I had to work with was 1.8 gigabytes, so the compression I needed was going to have to be pretty extreme.

Next step was to find a free (preferably) tool to do the encoding, which I figured would mean I’d lose the very latest codecs, (and right I was) but I was hopeful I’d still achieve the results I needed. (and I did.)

After much searching I came across Super which is a video processing/encoding tool that offers flash encoding as one of its benefits. This is a well designed, functional piece of software and I got what I needed from it without once needing to read any documentation. However the design of the Super pages at the eRightsoft site is deplorable beyond measure and I can’t believe it was designed by the same people that created the tool. I could not download the tool from their website no matter how hard I tried, the page just kept looping. I had no proxy, no software firewall , nothing was blocking my referrer and I tried 3 browsers (IE, Firefox and Safari), then I gave up and downloaded it from Afterdawn.

I was thinking about writing a tutorial detailing the steps I took making my videos, but it really was too easy and not really worthy of one. The only tip I could really give is to right click on a blank part of the main window to see all the config settings.
The site I worked on was finished on time (2 days) and I had a perfectly watchable 10MB flash video embedded in the page as well as offering Xvid, DivX and WMV higher quality versions available for download. Perfect!

    Super is a great tool. I’ve used it a few times and been very, very happy with the results.

    I agree that the web page design is awful, but the program can be downloaded from after finding the “download and use” link within the red text. That’s a really good example of how not to build a web page and how to really under-sell a good product.

    Actually I got that wrong….

    1. Go to
    2. Right at the bottom of the page there is a link that reads “Start Downloading SUPER © right now” and that will take you to
    3. The 4th red paragraph includes the link “download and use” which takes you to
    4. At the bottom of that page find the 4 links entitled “SUPER © setup file” and only then will you get the 26.8MB file.

    That was really, really awful! Who on Earth thought that would be a good way to design a site?

    Yeah, or you could forgo the nutso design of their own website and grab the exact same version from Afterdawn. I don’t normally suggest such things, but that eRightsoft site is just… well wrong.

    Besides, the program has an update feature so if there are updates, you can get them without every having to see that nasty eWrongsoft site.

This site is totally free to use, you have absolutely no moral or legal obligations to help us continue.
There are however, some costs involved in running the site.

Plus Don kids keep asking for a better allowance.

So if this site helped you find your way, perhaps you could consider contributing to our costs. Whatever amount you feel this site was worth to you would be just wonderful.
Use PayPal if you do decide to share and help us with the costs and in appreciation for our time and attention, or alternatively buy a book from our Bookstore..
