I took last wed off to go fanning with my buddy, Nick. he's got this new Canon G9 that'll take a pic every second.. for as long as you want, and make an avi of it.

We set it up to point at the UP Bridge 15 in St. Paul. So here it is :)

it's a huge file, so be patient!

I don't think the host likes delivering that much data. When I attempted to download it, the bitrate started at around 200 KB/sec and then dropped to less than 10 KB/sec (with well over a half-hour estimated time remaining) before I cancelled the operation.

I don't think it's a host problem.. I've been downloading it, and a couple friends did with no problems.

I just downloaded it 1411/KB sec..

I got the server time out message too. Perhaps you could post it to youtube?

Must have been the pipe I was using. Downloaded it at home just fine. It is a cool video.

The bandwidth on a version as good as the original would be pretty steep. Wait a bit, a higher-res version may appear as an option. Or, maybe not.

What settings are you using for the YouTube vid. You can get some damn clear video if you use the right settings.

Here is one I am using for .mp4 formats.

I didn't see any settings. I remember a thread on here a bit back talking about the low/high quality setting of some kind.  But nothing like that appeared when I did the upload.

hmmm, imho it still looks like you're viewing it through a shower door...

if I pick 'watch in higher quality' it says video no longer available.   

I've just never been a huge fan of youtube, can you tell? ;)

It looks better here:  http://www.viddler.com/explore/diezmon/videos/1/

Odd that it says its no longer avail. Must be a YT F up. Just watched it from the wifeys computer in the "higher quality" and it is showing fine...and I've never viewed it on that one before so I know its not in cache.


I've been putting most of my videos on Vimeo anyways recently...they actually support true high def as well as good quality standard vids.
