Thanks Ryan. Peter is this what you need to video blog in India? looks like this(http://dream.berkeley.edu/~jtowle/mbot/faq.php) is a piece of the puzzle. Peter is going to India this summer and plans to video blog. problem is that you cant count on fast connection, correct software, correct interfaces everywhere. seems the best way is if he had a videophone that could upload straight to his blog. is this how he could do it? You got to forgive me becasue im a little ignorant of some of this stuff. i can shoot, edit, and teach other people to do the same. But videobloggin is still new to me.(i just got a blog 6 months ago). I bought a phone that took videos about a year ago. I returned it after a week becasue i couldnt figure out what to do with it. plus the videos looked like total crap.
