    EDIT- changed the title of this thread - better for any future updates.

    Well it's been a while since I made a fool of myself - well, on purpose I mean Oops!

    You my have seen my uStream post:-

    Thread title:- Want a laugh at my expense? - daveac

    Well undaunted I've now joined blip.tv
    here

    I joined after watching TDury's (very good) 'Who at the Cavern' vblog (part1)
    EDIT - I think this video has been posted on the site in the past - otherwise I would have given it a thread of it's own)
    here

    So here's my test video - and Louis & Ken - I'm wearing my PodShock T-Shirt so I expect you two at least to watch Evil

    There doesn't seem to be a way to embed these videos.
    EDIT - Taras has sorted that out - see below. The 'front picture' is just the blown-up avatar from the site - the video quality is much better than that image. Again thanks Taras :-)

    Cheers, daveac

    Well done Taras:-

    I checked the 'source code' for my page but couldn't find 'embed src=' in there.

    Could you see if you could do the same with my video here please?


    EDIT - Done Already thanks.

    The pixel image shown is just the 'blown up avatar folks - the video quality is fine.

    Cheers, daveac

    The second of the four icons on the lower right of the video is EMAIL or EMBED... I'm just good at poking around.

    Thanks again Taras.

    As people who saw this thread early on notice - I've replaced the tiny 'icon' that I'd put on the blip.tv site - I didn't realise it would be used at the 'start' of any clip.

    Since I was altering it I decided to add some text and even number it as a 'vblog' - how many more I'll do I don't know.

    Cheers, daveac

    Looks good Dave.

    I just tweetered about it, so perhaps you will get more views.

    Not bad for a test video. If you were to use the same gear again in the same position and same time of day, I would just work on the fill light you need on your face. Even a reflective white board off camera on reflecting back on the shadow side of your face should help.

    I haven't tried Blip.tv, but I do have accounts on Ustream and Seesmic, though currently with no content there. I thought I would be using them while on tour... Frown Once I prepare a better set up here, I may start using these video services on a more regular basis.

    Being that you shot this with the video function of your still digital camera using the built in mic, I am quite surprised how well it did indeed turn out.

    By the way, most newly released video games on the modern video game consoles here in the states start at around $60 (US), but I do agree that the Blu-ray discs in the UK seem overpriced. Also, I feel 42" LCD HDTV is a good size. It all varies depending on various factors involved in the viewing experience. Watching a material on a 42" screen from 5 to 8 or 9 feet away from the screen should be fine.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    I like the video montage intro they put together for Who at the Cavern 3. Kudos to whomever put that piece together.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    The clips were filmed by Tim (Paul Wilson's mate). After the event Colin, James, myself, Paul and Tim had dinner and a couple of drinks with a few other people. Didn't realize he had recorded so much of the event though.

    Thanks Louis Big Grin

    Yes - something strange happenned - the Sun came out just as I started Smile

    The quality seems good enough I think - especially if I can do it like that again 'in one take' so I don't have to edit and recode etc.

    The camera video comes out as .avi ( which was 99Mbs in size) which when uploaded - blip turns into a .flv movie (which seems to be about 33Mbs in size)

    I'll at least try a couple more.

    Cheers, daveac

    Hi Dave,

    Enjoyed the vblogcast. Watched/listened to it as I marked out my Dalek neck rings. BTW I suspect that your TV screen refreshes at 120Hz (120 times a second) not 120MHz (120 million times a second) Big Grin Sorry thats the electrical engineer in me coming out.

    I was going to point that out too. It's cute and funny at the same time.

    Come on Dave, you did that deliberately, didn't you?

    Never mind the arrow - just noticed I end the video almost drooling - it must be me mentioning Peri near the start that did it.
