Any video editors out there??

This afternoon, I got my wind turbine re-wired, all hooked up, and put the baby in the air 15' and the sucker took off like crazy!! Grabbed my new Kodak Z990 which has video capability and shot 17 sec of it downloaded to my laptop and tried to share it, but my program says my max is 25MB....the video was 42MB.....

My Dell has VideoPad editing software, but holy crap Batman, that stuff is way to complicated for this kid!! Guess I just need to shoot SHORTER videos???

So......if 8.5 seconds of video = 21MB, then maybe I should just aim for 9 seconds?? Guess I could try it and see?? Experimenting with different lengths of video will probably tell me when I reach 25MB.....any video editing experts reading this??

Got the 17 sec. vid uploaded to under my "Gatorep" ID...only took 30 minutes??


  1. You camera may have different quality settings too which make for smaller or larger files. You have to find the right mix.

    Another option is to upload to YouTube, set it to semi-private or whatever that setting is and embed it here. That's what I do.

    Let me know if you need more help and we'll figure something out :)

  2. OMG! I can actually leave a comment again! The Universe is returning to norm. Happy camper am I to be connected again, John. Thank you! And you can't go wrong listening to Miss Maria - the muse knows her stuff. ;)

  3. 3 posts in one day? And we can post again?!!..... All is well with the world In quartzsite
