Free To Play movie on steam is 7.6GB?

I am just curious why such movie would have bigger file size?

The file size of the movie (in MB) is 7605MB.

Bigger size? That's the size of a high bit-rate full HD video file

I'm just not used to it MrNeeds. Seems like it wasn't compressed and retained its quality before they send it online on Steam

It is compressed, if it wasn't compressed then it would be 30+ GB, you have a link to the video?

I find myself too busy playing a handful of good F2P games to watch a movie about F2P games

Haven't seen it yet but why would they convert it to stereo if it had 5.1 in the main movie stream?

you can switch to 5.1 or 2.0 in the stream, most movies come like that, it autoplays in the format that matches your windows setup, if you play 5.1 on a 2.0 setup, most of the audio will be missing or reduced volume so it ships like that.

I thought if it did that it had two streams didn't know you could make it do that based on what device was playing that's cool to know. I need to do that when converting some files now. I have 5.1 so I have never noticed. So it just down mixes the 5.1 track then?
