Video from last week's BLU meeting


I've only been to one BLU meeting so far, and have been lurking on the
list... but do you need some video encoding? Video encoding has been a
secondary discipline of mine (last job required it), and I could
possibly help if there is broadband access to the raw video.

DivX-encoded video seems to work real well on Linux (as well as
Windows). If you use RealPlayer to playback AVI files, it will even
download the codec.

My system is reasonably fast for this.. Athlon 2k with half-gazillion of
RAM. I can usually encode video at realtime (or twice that for
'dual-pass' encoding).

Let me know,

Scott Prive

Subject: Video from last week's BLU meeting

I'm in the final stages of post-production on the video of Christoph
and Gordon's presentation last week. The two mpeg files are ready and
are currently uploading to the server; the first Quicktime file 
is done, and I just began encoding the second Quicktime file.

The first one took about 18 hours to encode a bit over an hour of
video; the second one is 1:15 long, so I'd expect it to be about
24 hours before it finishes encoding.

Once all the files are uploaded, I'll move them into the web directory
and add links on the to-level page for them.
