Moov Atom at front of the file: YouTube SEO

Hello Guys, Here I present to you a trick which can help you speed up your video loading (especially on the web) by something called the moov atom.
It is kind of an index of an mp4 file, and the video does not start playing till it is not found by the player. Youtube recommends to move it in the front of the file (beginning) so that your video loads quickly.

There are several ways to do this, below are some relevant links and commands discussed in the video:

Download FFMPEG software from here:
www.ffmpeg.org

And this is the cmd command that you will use to fire up ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -movflags faststart -acodec copy -vcodec copy output.mp4

PRO TIP:
Right click on cmd to paste contents.

Also, here is an alternative way to do the same, explained by someone else (also a desi guy, method uses Adobe Air, and would be best if you don’t want to use CMD)
