Picking up an old quest to put the first Pewds video I ever watched on a 3.5" 1.44MB floppy disk (LWIAY).
Yes, I know it is on the LTT and Tom's Hardware forum already. Ignore those.
it's the Cool Cat Cringe Tuesdays video. Don't ask, because I don't know.
I have managed to get it to 4.8MB with a 64x48 resolution and fish tank audio.
Any advice/ideas?
I can attach the base file and my current progress if you would like.

Try a better video codec like H265 and make the audio as low quality and mono as possible.

use opus at its lowest setting with mono and voice, av1 can also make it small, it also depends on the length of the video

Heh, reminds me when I browsed through my mp3s to find some to put on a diskette (one track per diskette). Kinda fun to see how it seeks from time to time as it loads to buffer.

Poor little floppy drives. I had so much fun with them. One computer in college only had 2 5 1/4 floppy drives, you had to boot dos from one and then
run the app from the other. Later on I'd use special formatting utils to get 1.8ish mbs out of a 1.44mb 3.5" floppy. Could do so much with floppies back then....

That's something MS used to do with their floppies always the first disk was 1.88MB and the rest were standard 1.44MB especially their 98 enhancement pack

I used to zip them and put them on multiple floppies. Oh the horror when CRC check failed.

You call that horror? When of my pals in university back in those days, was supposed to handle his assignment to the professor, when he tried to open the floppy, the file is gone. How and why? we don't know. And he didn't bother to save the file first in his computer. He saved it directly into the floppy ..... :roll:
