What a pleasant suprise to find that Uechi-Ryu.Com has a new server. I've been so busy lately that I haven't been around for almost 10 days I think. Then I ran across the post about the new server and went to see how the videos play on it.
Broadband users are going to relish in the speed and quality of the videos.
Yesterday, I updated 5 old videos to play at their orignal 352x240 size for broadband without having to download the mpegs. I took 5 mpegs out and replaced them with 350kps WMV files. The picture quality is "close" but I also managed to remove approx. 50 or more MB's off the server by replacing the 12-18 MB mpegs with 3-5 MB WMV files. The WMV's load up and play within a few seconds.
The download speeds went from about 37kps on a good day to around 200kps yesterday. Amazing difference. (From my end, yours may differ)
Now that I am pretty much settled in to my new house I will have more time to work on the multimedia page and, if George needs me, around the forums as well. I am still battling the "lawn blues" plus some other things but it's getting there. Hell, I even hope to start working out again. (Haven't really since last September.)
As mentioned in the other post, I am expecting some really exciting Uechi videos from overseas that I received permission to post. But first I will wait until they get here before saying anything more. Then I will make an announcement once they are up.
I hope you all had a great camp. And if anybody has any videos of it they wish and can share, let me know and we'll put 'em up.
(Slowly but surely returning to the fold)
