Mushroom Day! (size warning)

Click here for the movie! (MPEG-4 format)
(22 MB!)

Today's video comes with a size and technology warning. The size warning is that it's big: 22 MB. After editing as much as I could, I got it down to just under 8 minutes, but that's a long vlog for me.

And there's a tech note on this one. I used the H.264 codec to create this file. What that means for you is that, if you use a reasonably recent Mac, you'll be able to watch the movie. If you watch on a Windows machine, however, you will need to make sure you have upgraded to QuickTime 7 before you can watch this movie. Unfortunately, that's also going to put iTunes on your machine-- they're bundled together now.

However, I did test this on a Windows XP box with QuickTime 7, and it worked flawlessly. If you had any trouble playing the file, please let me know by leaving a comment and tell me what went wrong (video wouldn't play, but audio did, or no audio, or nothing, or it crashed) as well as what operating system you have (Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows NT?, Mac OS 9?) and which version of QuickTime you have installed. I honestly won't try to troubleshoot if you have Windows and anything less than QT 7, because I know they don't work together.

If the filesize was just too big for you to download, it'd be nice to know that, too, so I can keep it in mind when I post longer videos. Thanks in advance for any feedback you want to offer!
