Psst! Wanna see some live video footage on Marc Almond...
I've finally done something I've been meaning to do in ages. Record some video footage and encode it so I can stream it direct using the Windows Media Services that come with the Windows 2000 Server I have sitting in my attic. I recorded it straight from my TV card using ShowShifter as AVI format so I could then compress it to ASF using Windows Media Tools 4.1 (I couldn't get 7.1 to work and 8 looks a bit nuts and boltsy to me).
The clip is of Marc Almond singing Say Hello Wave Goodbye (click here to watch the clip) live (but recorded back after Marc's first Union Chapel gig) on Jools Holland's Hootmanay broadcast on New Year's Eve. I actually captured it on the repeat showing on New Year's Day.
The quality is a bit ropey (it's my first attempt and am still getting used to the options) and I've limited it to just over 3 minutes (it's 5 minute song).
If you would like to see the entire clip OR if you have any comments OR who think it's a complete waste of time and effort I'd appreciate you either dropping me a line or a message in the comments facility below. Ta.
