February OWASP Bay Area Meeting

Yesterday night I ran my first OWASP Bay Area meeting! It was certainly an interesting experience, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Thanks to everyone that helped me to make the meeting possible.

We had a great turnout, with about 35 people attending, and I hope everyone enjoyed the talks as much as I did. For those that weren’t able to make it, Kurt Grutzmacher’s presentation was called ‘Your Client-Side Security Suck. Stop Using It.‘ and Eric Rachner’s presentation was on NTLM attacks and countermeasures.

I did record both presentations, but I am having a hard time re-encoding it to fit within youtube’s file size limits. Anyone have ideas on how to squeeze a 40 minute presentation down to under 100mb? My current settings are output to XViD, 320×240, 528kps video, 32kpbs audio. I am going to guess that if I reduce the video bit quality, I can reduce the file size some more, but what is is a good setting? I can’t seem to find any docs or howtos on this.
