Through the Tas des Pois

This video sequence shows a passage between the outer two rocks of the Tas des Pois


This is an experiment. It is my second Flickr video. The Flickr uploader did not recognise mpg filetype, and I had to revert to the basic uploader. Video is a jungle, and understanding how the codecs work remains (for me) a mystery. The first go used the native 640x480 of my Canon S3 camera, and was 70Mb. This version uses a reduced frame size of 320x240 and Mpeg1 settings. This yields 14.7Mb, but means resolution is not so good if you choose the full screen option.


I have also added a still frame at the beginning that looks better in the photostream, and when viewing as a slideshow. (The slideshow routes you to the basic picture page before running the video).

This sequence was taken while I was steering the boat with one hand, and holding the camera in the other, so please forgive the sloping horizons!
