Almost Vacation Time

July 1st, 2009 Comments off


I believe I have the video conversion issue resolved on my laptop. The AVS4YOU company sent me an e-mail with instructions on how to completely remove the software and then re-installing the software resolved the problem. So what this all means is that I should be able to generate the flash format videos while on vacation. As we have time and Internet access, I’ll update the blog here as well as update the “official” Utah vacation page.

Just a few more days ’til vacation… but who’s counting?

Flash Video Format and 5k Run

May 23rd, 2009 Comments off

I think I am on to a solution for being able to put the videos up in Flash format which makes them more accessible to visitors using other browsers and operating systems. Turns out I needed to install an additional media player plug-in on the server. I still need to figure out the best way to get the video in the *.flv format in the first place. I still like VideoStudio for editing the movies… now if it would only save in *.flv without locking up.

OK, instead of using the *.flv file format, I am now using AVS Video Convertor to convert the *.wmv file to a *.swf (another Flash format) file. This seems to be working OK for me. I’d appreciate feedback on how this works (or doesn’t work) for eveybody else.

In other news, Chris and I ran in a 5k run this morning up at Wickham Park. I finished at 29:29 with Chris right on my heels at 30:00. It rained a bit off and on before and during the run. Vicky managed to stay dry and took some video of Chris and I. Here is a 3 minute video showing some of the highlights of today’s run.

Adobe Premier Elements and another attempt at flash

May 22nd, 2009 Comments off

I downloaded a trial version of Adobe Premier Elements to try it out. Right off I don’t like the interface as much. I keep dragging video clips to the timeline, but only one shows up in the timeline even though the other clips are there as well. Anyway, I dropped a couple of clips in and saved as a FLV file. Let’s see if that works… nope. I’m not exactly sure where the problem lies. Looks like for now I have to stay with the *.wmv file format until I figure something else out.
