Alright I tried my best. Help?
I'm still having trouble with the MSN Groups website that I'm posting my animations on. I've never tried anything like this before, so it's probably easier than I'm making it out to be. What I want to do right now is post an animation into my album that consists of 100+ frames. Rather than making it a gif file, I'd like it to be a file that someone can click on it and be able to open it with either quicktime or realplayer (realplayer preferably). I know that I can save the animation under files like fli., flc., avi., etc. to make them quicktime and realplayer compatible, and yes, I've tried to upload these formats onto my album (sometimes successfully, sometimes not). But even though I'm able to upload the file, when I try to open it, the realplayer pops up, attempts to download it, and finally says that it can't because there is an error. Is there something wrong with the website, or is it unable to accept realplayer and quicktime files?
If you need to see the website for reference, here's the link:

What program are you using to convert them? The best thing to try first is to use a Quicktie format (.qt, .mpg, etc...) and use Quicktime to open to see if that works.
The program I'm using is Jasc Animation Shop (an extension of Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7). I looked to see if the .qt and .mpg formats were available in the save box, and of course, they weren't. Is there any way to include them into the save box?
I couldnt tell whether or not a MPEG filter is available and the only software I know of that does that is Adobe Premier. Premier also does Quicktime format as well as Quicktime Pro. I could be wrong and keep looking for you, though.
