Vimeo doesn't seem to have been hit the MPAA. I post a private video and for fun put a commercial music track like Rihanna in it. Youtube quickly stops my video or removes the audio because of Copywrite infringement. Youtube actually made me take a Copywrite test to reactivate my account.

Mind you I heard in the news just recently Vimeo was bought by someone and I know forsee this not lasting much longer.

Plus really the quality is much better for some videos I find.

I use Adobe Premiere. I don't use nearly 1/4 of the functions...but I am still learning it...

In reply to YouTube's copyright issues - They give you SEVERAL strikes before it even becomes a problem. I have a video that I cannot monetize due to the sound in the background (video from Disney that recorded the music as part of the video) - but that wasnt even a copyright infringement...)

Interesting. So you can't have copyrighted music as background? That bites. What if I'm playing some music in the car while filming?

Probably wasn't a good idea to upload a 800MB file to youtube for it to convert, lol.

Is there a "best" resolution to use before uploading to youtube? I'm sure you guys don't upload the entire gigabyte of video.

It was a Disney firework show. I'm sure they've got that **** on lockdown.

Like I said, I can keep the video up....and I have.... as it still draws attention to my other videos - but I cannot make money off that video.

Here is another GoPro video from this past weekend! I mounted it up on a buddy of mine's dash.

Anyone good at using twixtor? I'm having some issues, a good tutorial would be helpful

it only slows down a certain part of the video. is there anyway I can slow the whole thing and have it extend it by itself rather than having to copy and paste the clip in a different sequence (on final cut pro) I feel like I'm just guessing how much the duration is rather than being exact

I took the gopro to Counterpoint Festival over the weekend. My computer can't handle editing so I've turned over all of the footage to a friend and he's putting together a compilation, but here's some raw video of Pretty Lights and a shot of the line going in thursday night. There were 15k tickets sold

Anyone else grab the iPhone App? It is worth getting it just to be able to use the iPhone to change your camera settings. I can see a preview of the camera angle, which has a delay but works. What I can't figure out is how to playback video on the camera. Anyone else figure this out?

Is playback like that possible? I skimmed through this last night but don't remember hearing anything about playback.


Maybe something on here

From the wifi bacpac product page on GoPro's site -

Quote:
Additional features* coming Fall 2012 with free software update.
GoPro App: use your smartphone or tablet as a live video remote-includes video and photo preview and playback.
http://gopro.com/hd-hero-accessories...-remote-combo/

I watched the second video you posted and it seems like the app is missing a couple features. Being able to watch videos off the camera was one of the bigger features for me.

maybe post something over at www.reddit.com/r/gopro. There's a lot of talk about the new app on there and there are two GoPro employees that frequent the discussions.

I didn't see anything over there. I emailed GoPro, will update the thread with what they say.
