Sweeping Issues

I've been trying to pick up sweeping and i'm having a few problems. all the videos i have watched don't really tell you much. i was wondering if anybody has any tips. My problem seems to be ( i think) is that i'm not sure how to mute the strings correctly, they're either too muted and it sounds stupid, or not enough then i end up just getting alot of string noise. And what part of my hand should be muting the strings? Also does a lower action help with sweeping? And does anyone have any good tips on how to build up speed + coordination? Is there one decent video either on dvd or something that actually really explains all the aspects of sweeping?
