Video: Eric and Scott ride Whiting

Eric and I had a nice ride at Whiting Ranch Park the other night. It gave me a good chance to play with the new video camera. Here are the results. It's a 12 MB file, so I hope you have a fast connection! Enjoy...

Some notes: Depending on how your system is set up, assuming you're on a PC, the above video will probably display using Windows Media player (if you don't have Windows Media Player, you can download it here.) If you're on Netscape, you might just see a white box with nothing in it until the video loads completely. If you're using Internet Explorer, you'll see the opening title of the video, the control buttons, and a line with a box in it (see diagram). The line with the box in it is the timeline. It will be partly gray and partly white. The white area indicated how much of th video has been loaded, and the gray shows how much is still left to load. You can start playing the video whenever you want, but if the little box (which shows your position in the video) catches up to the gray area, the video will stutter or stop. If your connection speed is faster than the rate at which the video is playing, the little box will never catch up, and you can just start watching. But if your connection speed is too slow, the video won't play smoothly. In that case, you should hit the pause button and wait until the white line is longer (meaning that more of the video has loaded.) Then you can start playing, and if you need to you can pause again when the box catches up to the end of the white line. Or, you can just let the whole thing load and then play it... Have fun!

Here's a diagram:
