This is pretty exciting, I am posting my first video. I have a lot to figure out but I have to start somewhere so here it is.

Please let me know if there any problems. This video is hosted over at Flickr because I already have an account there.

Thanks everyone-

Thanks Giz.

I am on limited time tonight. I am sure that I will set up accounts at Blip and or YouTube.

Flickr limits videos to 90 seconds. That was fine for this video at 26 seconds.

I wonder if the video would look any better hosted on Blip or YouTube?

I have long admired you for getting video in so much and so easy.

Nicely done. From this short introduction it would appear that you’re a natural for this video thing; confident and friendly presentation technique. I’m looking forward to the things you decide to share.

Nice job, Todd. This should be a wonderful presentation tool. To tell the truth I tend to follow videos better than written blogs and, as you said in your introduction, more material can be presented with video.

I am looking forward to seeing more of these.

Nice going Todd,

I’ll be looking forward to seeing your videos.

I enjoy short videos of not much more than 5 minutes.

Nice resolution. The video looks good. When I watch it though the audio seems a bit hot. Could be my machine. I look forward to seeing your productions.

Thanks for all the support guys.

Spaids is right about the sound. I had a tough time figuring it out to that point and I will have to work on it some more.

I figured that I would just jump in with both feet and get things going.

Dick, I agree with you, I prefer videos short and to the point. Watching video on the computer is not the same as watching a program on TV. Most people will not tolerate a long video.
