fun with video files

Saturday, September 18, 2004

Okay so for like the past 3 hours or something all I have done is

(a) try to figure out why my video files from the digital camera only had sound and no picture

(b) learn about codecs and download the right ones to be able to see my video

and

(c) try to figure out how to share the darn video files!

I even learned how to embed a Windows Media Player on a website or a blog – in fact, I could put one in here if I wanted to. But my files don’t want to play – I think it’s cause they are now on Tripod which gets all funny when you link to their stuff.

Anyway – this should work. If you have Windows Media Player or Real Player on your computer, you can see our silly little videos that I took today while at Fifteen. It was the first time I’ve used the video setting on Mark’s digital camera, and so when I passed it to him to take some of me, he didn’t know what he was doing!

First clip is here.

Second clip is here.

Cross my fingers that it works.

Anyway, lunch was good and not excessively expensive (for London). Mark had olives (very colourful yummy looking ones) and a porkchop with roasted celeriac and artichokes and something else green I didn’t recognise. I had Tuscan bean and bread soup, a spatchcocked poussin with more beans and spinach, and a brownie with blueberries and some kind of blueberry or currant cream. And a Bellini – as it was supposed to be a celebration of my end of OSAP payments plus getting the manager’s job. Yay me.

Afterwards, we did a bit of sightseeing. Came home in the rain (see the pixie, she’s in her wellies now). And it’s late and I am still very full so that’s good.

    I don’t get it cause my mother was able to watch them yesterday. Not that they are really exciting or anything! Just wanted to see if I could do it. If you are really desperate, I will email the files. Who wrote this anonymous comment anyway?!?!

    Hey weird I just tried it again and it is back online. So maybe it’s picking the right time of day when Tripod isn’t tempermental.
