The main problem I had issues with was the media plug-in that I use. This meant that none of the video clips I had added were displaying.
Any of my own video clips that I add, I first convert to flash movies, to ensure maximum compatibility across platforms. I know that .avi files will work on most Operating Systems, but I avoid platform- dependent formats such as .wmv. In fact, once they’re recoded to .flv they’re usually smaller anyway.
Why don’t I just upload them to YouTube, I hear you ask?
No real reason really, except that mostly I don’t want to, and have plenty of server space, and bandwidth of my own. OK, so if I were to put one of my own creations up, and everyone found my starring role in it, so
irresistable that I had a million viewers a day, then I’d have to have a re-think. It’s not happened yet though.
Anyway, as I’ve said somewhere else before, it’s not fame I want. It’s the fortune!
Getting back to the subject, you probably won’t see any earth-shattering changes with this behind-the-scenes upgrade, but if you do see anything broken that I’ve missed, I’d be glad for you to write
Ok, I’ll fess up, I’ll be glad for anyone to write me. The bloggers life is a lonely one sometimes. The self-piteous approach not working either? Thought not. Anyway, I do hope you enjoy reading my rants, rambles, and well ok… utter drivel.
