    Now that everything's HD, 1.5 GB is no biggie. YouTube will happily smush it, but I would start it uploading then go to bed, see how it went in the morning. Or if you want, you could use WeTransfer dot com (no sign up needed, free up to 2GB) to transfer the file to me and I could have a go at making a short version.

    I didn't think about upload bandwidth. Copy.com is the backup service I use. When I had a slow upload speed it could take days to upload 1.5Gb, but it would do that in the background, and it would do it in chunks, so even frequent interruptions would not reset the upload. I liked it because that daemon would run on any machine I installed it on, allowing really easy synching. I even set my mother up with it -- when I want to show her something, I drop it in a folder on my machine, then a few hours later I tell her to go look at *her* folder to see it. It also means that anything I copy in there is available to me anywhere I have an internet connection.

    OK, I'll try YouTube overnight and if that doesn't work I'll send you the current 1.5GB file .... or would you prefer the 21GB of raw video still on the camera :)

    Thanks

    The video is now on YouTube and they did indeed "happily smush it" and now it's not worth watching - unless you do it on your phone :(

    Fortunately, the content isn't very good so it possibly won't matter :)

    So here it is - the World Premiere of On any Saturday

    Be gentle, it's my first time .....

    Yay! Looking forward to seeing it! People can skip thru it if they want to jump ahead.

    Although, it says "This Video Is Private". So I think you have to go to the "Info and Settings" (pencil icon) under the video window and select "Public" instead of Private.

    BTW, I didn't mean to discourage you. Once you figure out the trick or two that makes your particular camera/software set up work better you'll be good to go. :) Definitely go back to Windows MovieMaker if that's a more pleasant experience. When I think of intuitive, easy to use software I usually don't think of Garmin, based on the Basecamp experience. :roll:

    Looks pretty good, Bob! Thanks for doing this.

    I viewed it on my phone and it was rendered quite well.

    Time to invest in a mic to manage the wind....or get funky and do a soundtrack!

    Thanks for that Bob. Seeing my trails from a different point of view was exciting. Your video makes the ride look real good. I think it is one of the best videos that I have seen!
    Thanks

    That was a great video! Because of the directing! A lot of thought was put into getting the other riders on camera. Nice job! I watched the whole thing (and not just cause I wanted to see how stupid I looked trying to get a 472 lb bike over a log) :oops:

    Two thoughts occurred to me while watching: 1. Amazing route, Rick! and 2. Don't wipe out trying to "get the shot" Bob! Lol.

    Looks like a great ride! Damn October being so busy. I wish I could have joined you guys. Out of curiosity, it looks like some of the trails are on private property, is that correct? I may try to get out at some point if I can, although it looks like it may not be until middle of Nov. If there is private property no problem I can just route around those sections.

    Stay cool

    Hi John
    Yes, you are correct. Some of it is on private property or on the edge of it. There should not be a problem following the route but you never know when someone has a bad day and changes their mind or thinks you are too close to their edge. Just keep your head up, be polite and all will be fine.
    Let me know when you come down and if I am free I would like to join you.
    Thanks
    Rick

    Stay cool
