Post $2 camera

got one of these from ebay same as Chad uses... well on the laptop or tv the vid looks great , i used windows live movie maker and let it upload itself to utube, now the quality has really dropped off...

any hints on getting a better pic maybe Trailrider vimeo page is better quality?

maybe use sony vegas to render and cut out crappy wind noise?

just short test vid around the block to test it out, i am presuming first branch it will rip it strait of the top of the helmet icon_thumright

Hori I would just do the cheat trick I do if you want the most quality

use Avidmux to clip the video to the length and post it raw. that way it will only get transcoded once.

What I mean is when you put it through a software editor you Transcode it and loose quality. (unless you buy a $10000 setup im told) when you upload to youtube you loose quality yet again.

youtube more so than vimeo. (They compress the video more) This is because they transcode the video again.


Avidmux only clips or shortens the vid so no need to edit it. (You cannot put titles etc in though or songs)

this is the best way to retain quality. BUT it means big uploads.


I though in the small screen IE embeded that looked just fine mate

I'd just make the video in WLMM, but export it as a good file quality to your computer. Make sure that movie still looks like a good quality and then upload that. It works for me.

They have released WLMM 11, with the new windows live pack. I haven't played much but noticed that you can easily create custom output profiles of whatever resolution and bit rate that you like.

what do you mean tags file icon_scratch all I do is record,transfer to comp,import to editing program and then upload to vemio/youtube.
I can not even change the bloody date mind you I can not read english very well let alone chinese there is a fair bit of info and help on youtube about them but most of it is over my head.

but seriously what do you mean tags file I might know what it is just not by that name yes you have to speek s l o w l y so I can keep up

Post Re: $2 camera
yes now I know what you mean
I tried all that when I first got it aswell, if you go onto youtube there is a couple of ways to change the date I only tried one way and felt like smashing it :cussing BangHead so did not bother the other way. I have mine mounted upside down so once it is flipped in editing you can not read the date anyway.
