Could someone please help me conduct a test

by IntrepBerkExplor / January 26, 2011 2:23 AM PST

I stream free, non-commercial, amateur travel videos as a hobby. So far they have all required broadband connections to be viewed.

Now I would greatly appreciate help to determine whether or not a conversion to flash works for dial-up.

Here is the flash link for my video of Canadian National Parks, followed by a description of the film:

"Maple Leaf National Parks" transports you to five of Canada's most famous Rocky Mountain National Parks in the Banff-Lake Louise Area. It features splendid waterfalls, glaciers, lakes, mountains, and other amazing scenery, plus wildlife. The film's National Park headliners are Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Yoho, and Mount Revelstoke. Also learn how Canadians distinguish themselves from Americans.

I have no idea what the results will be, but would really like to know if this 20 minute video in flash is a success or failure for dial-up users.

All responses are welcome, and thanks for your help.

Don't do it.

Ever visited a site like Youtube with dial-up? Everything there is Flash. Twenty minute Flash video will take about a week to download on dial-up.
