A Disappointing Attempt..

Well... I attempted a longer video and downgraded the quality on my camera hoping it would be a faster upload to youtube... it took 1 hr 38 minutes.. and the quality sucks!

So.. unless it's something that only takes 10 seconds to watch I won't be making anymore videos.  I refuse to use this quality again and it takes nearly 45 min to upload a 10 second video with decent quality.. and you cant do much in 10 seconds!..

I just cannot find any other way to do good quality with a decent upload time.. (before this I did try a good quality film of Woody outside.. when I went to upload it it said 2 hr and 24 min... I deleted it!)  I am on dsl but the "slowest" one for cost so maybe that's my problem.

Anyway..sorry for the horrid quality.. just remember, you need only suffer this once lol..

That was fun! Especially since I got to see if your voice matches up to what I picture. :) I didn't think the quality was that bad, actually... I really enjoyed seeing all your shiny books and other things mixed in! Thanks for sharing!

OMG! You made a video! I can't even do photos and post them yet. I didn't think the quality was too bad. Especially if this is your first video. And you even got it on YouTube. Wow...color me impressed. I can identify with all your books and bookcases. I have five myself although the ones in the family room are a few hardbacks then the other shelves have my Disney Collection. I stopped collecting them when they got so huge. Love the small Bambi, Thumper, Lady and the Tramp, Lion King, and the Fantasia pieces. Did get a few of the larger ones that people who belonged to the Cassic Collections, received for renewing.
Love your De collection. Would enjoy seeing that sometime. Just got in from my workout so going to get something to drink and chill in a minute. Vala

Well, that was wonderful! I thought the quality was absolutely *fine* and loved hearing your voice again (and Boo Boo's) and seeing all your books and nic-nacks. And the egg your brother painted is beautiful. Very nice vid, Pat.

kelly: if you saw th e 10 second moorhens video then you can see a huge difference in quality..but after spending over 1 1/2 hrs uploading I wasn't going to delete it!

Susan I have a list of the books I own (or did own) here:
If i gave the book to my grandson or carl or someone I put their name by it but left it in my list so that I'd know I read it.

Vala: goodness you are easily impressed LOL.. I'd love you to come down to see all the DE books but you'd have a hard time because I have a cat! bummer. I even have the love seat/ bed for company.. i may try one more video and set the camera on the tripod and flip thru some of the collection.. problem is it would be quick flips to keep it really short.

Chris it wouldn't be bad if i could do things while it uploaded by it slows the computer to a crawl so I can't do anything while it's uploading!!! glad you like the egg. i'll try to remember to take a photo of it to show you..

Yay, bookshelf tour! I think the quality was fine. It was great to see all your books and peruse the titles on the spines. And when you got to the shelf with the poppets on it, I totally squealed.

Love the Miss Piggy plate! Not a bad attempt (the quality really wasn't that bad), I enjoyed it. I love your knick knacks and I have one of your bookcases :)

I didn't think that Video quality was bad at all....! I am assuming it is with your Camera...And I know that the Camera Videos are never as good as a Camcorder or a dedicated Video Camera....

Your books are so neat, Pat....My shelves are horrendous, in comparison, and there are so many books that I have no place for---Just like so many of the DVD's...I need rwo more rooms....!! (lol)
