Vorbmob 05 Xc Epic Video

Postby Jono on Mon 24/Oct/05 9:27pm

...Just to prove that it is a good idea to take a DH bike on an XC ride every once in a while.

I'll definitely be going back there - the downhills are a mixture of perfect techy-singletrack, and the good and scary bits of the (karapoti) rock garden.

I call it an epic, but it was only 25km, and 1000m of climbing. And I was pretty broken at the end of it all :)

Should be viewable with windows media player (I'm running v10 and it works proper-like).

Pretty much everyone who has tried the VideoLAN VLC player has had good results with it. Damned MP4 codecs :)

cheers - I was pleased to see that the DVD renderer works well - the quality is a lot better on DVD than on a tiny 320*240 window with masses of compression :)

Loverly vid Jono! :thumbsup:

It didnt work for me on WMP, or Quickannoytime, so I used my dodgy bit of Hungarian software to play it!

I have no idea why it doesnt work though.

Hi there, any suggestions as to what to view it on? My Windows media player (V10) wasn't keen on playing it for me.

Quicktime plays those mp4 files

Which means Quicktime alternative should also play it if you don't want quicktime

Jono is being Mr. Fancy Pants and has made the video a .mp4, which should run on Quicktime if you've got that. If you don't have Quicktime then don't get it - Get Divx instead. You might need to download a special codec to play .mp4, but it works sweet on mine :)

Great video! Shame it's so crap quality. I wish I had come on the ride.
I swear by VLC Media Player. Small, customizable and very efficient. It's also free.

...you might find that it plays if you've got the divx viewer (but my WMP 10 definitely plays it). The compression is MPEG4 SIF (352*240) with MPEG4 Stereo 128kb/s sound.

Bizarrely, it doesn't play on my quicktime viewer...

That would be me. Funny thing about video. It makes everything look flat. And doesn't show properly how everything was clay (slippy as all hell) and covered in roots :)

I've got the viewer but still no joy :(

Perhaps someone could draw me a picture :huh:

It's definitely playing in my WMP using the DivX codec. Oddly, along with not playing inside the Quicktime viewer, it doesn't play inside the DivX viewer either. This whole content creation thing is a lot more difficult than I had expected :)

I've found that my video editing software can create WMV streams too - I've got a WMV version that I can upload if the DivX stuff is getting everyone confused...
