In an effort to share more r/c boat information, I have contacted a web/video hosting service and encouraged them to create a category for video shots for our r/c sailing creations. They have responded positively, and I encourage each of you to post videos there if you have them.
The site is called <u>KNOWITALLVIDEO</u> and they do have some upload limits … sorry, no 3 day complete regatta videos at this time, but short clips are fine.
In order to post or view, you do need to register, but that part as well as posting is free !!! (What a wonderful word)
For my first try, I used a video clip that was sent to me by Bill Hojnacki of his <font color=“blue”>NIGHTMARE F-48 </font id=“blue”>sailing in Hawaii. <font size=“1”>[credit and thanks to Bill !] </font id=“size1”>I have additional clips of Bill’s boat that I will add - and the smaller files <u>CAN</u> be uploaded via dial-up modem. Slow, but it worked. ALSO - be aware it usually takes 24 hours to have the video posted, since some are reviewed for appropriate content. <font size=“1”>(I did post on the weekend, so that might be part of the delay)</font id=“size1”>
For those with new digital still cameras - take time to look at instructions as many of the new cameras today allow a short video clip to be taken even though it is a still camera.
Anyway, for the rest of us, I would encourage the use of this site so all of our videos are posted in one location, making it easier to see and reference. If you do a video of your build process, they are <u>VERY</u> interested in educational and “how-to-do-it” clips.
So here is the direct link to the sign-in page:
http://www.knowitallvideo.com/showvideo.jsp?i=1101056650677 and if you get lost on the way, here is the path:
Go to the home page for <font color=“brown”>“www.knowitallvideo.com”</font id=“brown”>
Select <font color=“brown”>“Hobbies and Collectables”</font id=“brown”>
Select <font color=“brown”>“RC Boats”</font id=“brown”> (we probably have to share with the power boat guys)
And then sign in. <font size=“1”>(must register for first time users)</font id=“size1”>
Select the video and sit back and watch.
You do need a media viewer, and Windows Media Player and QuickTime are two. There is a third but all are free downloads, so let’s take advantage of this free offer, and start posting those photos of your boat (or construction technique) actually moving or underway.
ummmm - it would be nice to post a short note here on this forum to let other know of your/any new additions to the video library !
