Don't worry, I think we're a bunch of pretty relaxed people :) Once big business gets in (in a few years?) we might need to start being vigilant about promos (like on the cms list), but for now we're ok.

You bet. I'll get a big empty form up within the week, and we'll figure out a blog system setup so we can easily create an FAQ and things like that. - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt; [View]

FWIW, I used to run the CD-R discussion list for Adaptec and later Roxio, a= nd we went through a very similar debate since the participants covered a w= ide range of experience and technicality. Eventually we all agreed to keep = a single list, and people could pick and choose what to read. Many original= ly "ignorant" users explicitly said that they were learning a lot and liked= it that way. For those who found the volume of mail overwhelming (reading = it on a website was not an option back then), I eventually launched weekly = newsletters with articles often inspired by hot topics in the discussion gr= oup. best regards, Deirdr=E9 Straughan http://www.straughan.com --- In= videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, Jay Dedman <jay@m...> wrote: > > > Another= option is to put a BIG empty form on the homepage of > > videoblogging.inf= o that says: "Ask us ANYTHING about videoblogging". > > The form sends an e= mail to Jay & Co, who then answer it or route the > > message to whoever ca= n answer it.

The server/client knows what mime type to use based on the file suffix, so .mp4 might be video/mp4, it might be video/quicktime, so the discussion at the moment is which one works best without requiring specific software. MPEG 4 can be created on any platform. Remember things like QT are Windows adn Mac so QT pro will produce MPEG4. 3ivx works on both fine. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/ [View]
