Very Cool Jeff!
Thanks a bunch for putting that together.
(any chance of putting that up somewhere for a higher quality download?)

Jeff, you should post the video over at the Rev forum too.

I will, but I want to have a higher quality video available. I found that I can do that on YouTube but not Google video. But YouTube has a 10 minute maximum. I need to trim just a little, and I'll put it up there.

What about from one of the downloading services? I haven't tried it:

I can do that too, but I definitely want to get it up on YouTube. I registered the username "ikeclub," and I'm going to put up all the videos I've done. It appears that Google Video is going to be phased out. They say that uploads will be discontinued at some point soon. YouTube is fairly ubiquitous, kite searches should turn up our videos, and they have high quality options now, so it's definitely a place to be.

Oh, and I loved how the background sound captured the true kite party ... country music and all!!!

Cheers,
Tom

I considered laying a music track over the whole thing, but then I thought it would better capture the atmosphere with the actual sound...even if we had to endure the country music. :P :P :wink:

Excellent vid! As I sit here it is raining, and slowly turning dark. We had some horrible weather through today, so no flying. Can someone just keep on reminding my how long the flight to LAX is - I keeep wanting to hop on a plane and come back! Great to see all the faces and kites again though - it so brings back a very happy few days. 180 go looking good too. Now who was flying that red kite to chase the girls in bikinis - looks like they were outside of the ropes too - come on, fess up!

(When you edit it jeff can you make me look thinner.... Oh and make Mike fatter too because it just ain't right that he is both thinner and better looking than me)

I guess you didn't know that skinny, good looking guys could fly on the other side of the ropes. ;)

I encoded a copy for YouTube at high quality. Came out to 893MB. It's been uploading for almost 3 hours, and it should take more than an hour more.

Wow. There's no power at my house so it would take even longer to upload here...
We're hanging out at Panera where they have light, food, and internet. All the essentials.
Winds have been 45mph gusting to 55mph, so kite flying is out for me too.
(cue up the mike would need rocks in his pockets joke...)

The other good thing about You Tube is that it works on the Touch/iPhone.

I've added a 10 minute version for YouTube.

It's not much different, but I shaved of almost 2 minutes by cutting frames off nearly every scene, and shortening some longer ones.

They say that they will process videos for High Quality, but I have no idea how or when that gets done. As of right now, there is no HQ viewing option available for the video.

Edit: I found a suffix that I can add to the URL to force a higher quality version. I edited that in so the link will go there. Requires a little better bandwidth...

Nice job Jynx.

I really love hearing the people near you, commenting about how amazing the it was of what we were doing. Plus the young child laughing during JB bugs routine.

PRICELESS!!!! :up:

Very good Jinx! Really enjoyed those snippets.

Its an interesting observation that Americans seem to find it far easier to praise ("Hey thats pretty good") than we do. One nil the the Americans IMHO :up:

Very nice video, Jynx. Thanks for posting.

I watched it twice before I realized that Lynn and I were flying next to Mike in the "six". :roll:

Were the others Jeremy, Brian and Mike S?

I was in there, look for the yellow team kite, fourth position. I also think that is Tom in the fifth position Jim. It look like the six man fly was filmed on friday, there is no tape outline out there. 8)
