Okay, so I'm jumping the gun by a few hours, but I figure it's March somewhere in the world, and I wanted to try out the new way of embedding YouTube videos we now have with the forum software change:

Thanks, rosanna! I really like this new feature. Lots of times people will say 'here's a cool video' but there's no clue what it's about. Having the screen shot helps me decide whether to click on it or not.

(In case anybody's wondering, to do this you have to use the "full reply" form, and then you click on the icon that looks like a square (to the left of the bulleted list icon; when you move your mouse over it, it will say "enter a media tag"). Then it will ask you whether it's a youtube or other kind of video, and then you just paste the URL. Very cool.)

Monica,

Nice playing! How hard was it to sync the video and sound? It really came out well.

That's beautiful, Monica. It is a bit quiet on the laptop, though. I shall have to listen again when I'm back home. Hmm . . . looks like I'm going to have to be careful where I click reply. It says I replied to epf. I suppose I did, but that wasn't my intent.

Wicked hard. I have no idea what I'm doing in Movie Maker, so it's a matter of laboriously moving the audio track back and forth and listening to it a gazillion times until I get them to synch up as closely as possible.

Sounds and looked great. What type/quality video cam did you use?. The video is very good.

Really nice Monica! I thought you handled the dynamics of the piece really well, the pianissimo in the last several bars at the end was especially lovely.

So if recording phobia is the red dot syndrome, what's video recording phobia? Yet another dimension to sweat: Gee, am I sitting up straight? How's my hair? laugh

Well done and a nice early jump on the March piano bar.

Hi Monica,

What a great start to the month of March with "greensleeves" now instead of "What Child is This"

Lots of new toys to play with here in the forum, now. I love it! smile

Your Youtube link is working beautifully and it sounds SUPER as usual. Congrats on using the video embedding feature.

Let' see if I can put a smilie in here that will earn me a face-slap laugh whistle wink

Warm regards,

Lisztener

I suppose you have a separate audio track (from the Zoom perhaps) in addition to the camera recording? Then you can line up the Zoom audio track with the camera audio, and then mute the camera audio. To make this easy, make a loud noise at the beginning of your recording, like they do in the movies with the clapper board. That's how the movie people sync the images with the sound.

Nice video, though! smile

Now if we only had a way to embed Box.net links into the forums as well, then we'd never have to leave this site. laugh

Yes, I'm using the audio from my Zoom. And at the beginning I did exactly what you suggested: I clapped a couple of times loudly. That made it VERY easy to synch the audio track with the video. The only snag is that when I tried to edit out the clapping part, I couldn't trim the video and Zoom track together... Movie Maker lets me select only one, and as soon as I did that, the two tracks became unsynched and my clapping was for nought. frown So I was left with the unpleasant choice of either starting off all my videos with a bout of clapping sick or synching the harder way.

Hunky, the video is from my new Flip Mino that I bought on Agilita's recommendation. Now that I know that Zoom is coming out with an audio/video combo this summer, I probably should've waited and just bought that. I'm also semi-regretting not buying the High Definition Flip for only another $60 bucks. Oh well. Live and learn.

Lisztener, beautiful job on the Chapell piece, and what a calm and mellow slide show to brighten our days in this gloomy winter weather. smile

Hey yall! Love the new look to the site by the way!

Anyways, Monica that was really beautiful! Love the quality of that video! I realy need to start checking out Nevue's works!

Here's my addition to the bar. It's actually a song I did last year, but recorded it on my DP this timee, and executed it a bit differently.

Dance of Pales

Monica, look at it this way: if you buy the zoom audio/video combo, you'll be helping out the economy AND getting another new toy. 2 birds with one stone! wink

Wow, z32, that "Pales" sounds tremendously difficult. A very pretty piece, with more than a few ominous overtones.

The good news and the bad news -

The good news - I love the videos. Monica, Lisztener, z32 - the music was wonderful.

The bad news - with the videos I can't go read other threads while the music keeps playing frown With the boxnet link I can listen to the music while I'm browsing away in other comments.

But how cool to be able to imbed the videos.

Ben, all of your tunes are always instant favorites and your performances are almost unbelievable they are so perfect.

Jotur, you can open a new window (or tab) on the forum, and read threads there. (Right click over the ABF "breadcrumb" on the header, and choose "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab".) The window (or tab) with the music can continue to play while you browse in the new window/tab.

Monica, great video. I really envy your ability to play those fast left hand arpeggios! Really nice ending, too. Liked that arrangement overall.

Lisztener, very well done. You really have enviable technique, a really professional touch, and lots of good feeling in your playing.

Z32 - that's awesome! Fascinating piece of music (love those chord changes), great playing.

I'm feeling a bit intimidated by all this piano prowess this month - but here's my piece - a catchy jazz waltz called Bluesette, spiced up with the best I can do for chord substitutions:

I am playing the piano, but the other instruments are computer-generated.

Ed, what a wonderful smooth jazzy piece. smile Tell me something... I'm always curious how these computer-generated accompaniments work. Do you just play your piece and the software comes up with everything automatically on its own? Or do you press some button that says something like "snare drum on" or whatever?

Phillip, I commented on your other thread, so all I'll say here is... WOW!! What an achievement!

z32, What an ominous sounding (and ominously difficult sounding) piece. Very enjoyable, if a bit frightening. grin
