    I want to code in vb.net that will uniquefy videos for uploading, first I need to know what is the lowest settings for ffmpeg to convert a wmv video to mpeg preferably less than 1 mb of 3 minutes video w/ out audio. In windows movie maker I use the format of 150 kpbs (video broadband) settings.

    thanks..

    Just pad'em (\0) you don't need ffmpeg to change the md5sum. ;)

    You can't make videos unique in ANY way.

    Anyone who says you can is talking out of their ass.

    Search for video fingerprinting. (good luck)

    Nah that's not accurate at all. You just need to change the md5 to make them unique as in non duplicate. As a matter of fact YT won't reject them as soon as you pad them somehow, for instance. You can stretch'em, slow them down, trim frames, change the pitch of the audio, anything really in order to achieve the same result. But all you need *really* is a way to change the md5sum that's the only parameter according to which a video will be marked as duplicate or not. As soon as the md5 is different you can upload 200 times the same exact video and it'll be accepted as "unique".

    Regards.

    I just modify the last 4 bytes or so of the video file to random byte values. It doesn't have any noticeable effect on the video.
