As some of you have already realized when attempting to post your videos to your blogs, the files are too large to be supported by WordPress. Your best option is to upload your video to either YouTube or Facebook and then to provide a link to the video on your blog. Uploading to youtube.com, for example, is very easy. Simply create an account (you can use your gmail account information if you have one), and follow the on-screen instructions.
Uploading these videos may take quite a while (around 2 hours), depending on the speed of your computer and the other programs that are running while you try to upload the file. *If you are presenting tomorrow, please do not wait until tomorrow afternoon to try to upload the video.* If you try and find that you still have no success uploading the video, you can save the file on a flash drive and use that for the presentation in class. I will continue to inquire about how to display the videos on a more public platform.
*Special thanks is due to Mahadeo for his investigation of various platforms that might have been able to support our videos.*
If questions arise, please include your question as a comment to this post so that others might see and respond to it. I will continue to check back into the blog as well to provide assistance.
The schedule for presentations of films in POWDERMAKER HALL 208 and 212 this week is as follows:
Tuesday, May 10th (PH 208) Thursday, May 12th (PH 212)
After you have presented, please return your flip cam to me packed in its original box.
Very much looking forward to the debut of your films,
p.s. If you have not responded to the last round of featured blogs (below), please do so. Your comments may include suggestions for how to extend the connections between Tuan and Thoreau proposed by the featured bloggers.
