I have the day off today so am trying out a couple of SGA vid ideas. Have pretty much given up trying to properly render the SPB vid, though I do try now and again ~ it's very frustrating :/ I kinda got it to save, but it's a version that gives you no details about bit rate or length of vid, and won't rewind or f/forward, it will just play, but it will at least play the whole thing. For example (about the details) on a properly rendered vid that I have saved as a WMV, these are the categories displayed when you hover over with the mouse: Type, File, Duration, Bit Rate, Dimensions, Protected and Size, but with this other version I have so far managed to save all you get is: Type, Dimensions & Size. Also, when you play it as well as not being able to rewind or f/forward, it doesn't tell you the total time if the vid. Trivial things, I suppose. My question is: should I just upload it anyway, and share what I have managed to save, in the hope that one day I will be able to get the damn thing to render properly? It is actually complete, just not renedered properly, I guess.
My TV was returned today, all mended and with a new tube installed :) Actually, it wasn't too bad using The Boy's TV in his bedroom ~ although his TV is small (my now fixed TV is 32") his bed was very comfy and I didn't really mind the small picture.
I had to go shopping this morning, much as I didn't want to leave the house. It's my day off and I would've been perfectly happy to alternate between my computer, my TV and my books :) But I needed coffee and stuff, so had to venture out :( Also ended up buying three bars of Divine FairTrade chocolate (which is gorgeous so go get some) ~ one bar as part of my friends birthday present, one bar for my neglectful geeky elf partner
(who forgets where I am alot of the time whilst she over-geeks ~ I know she can't help it so I forgive her :) ~ but she's having a traumatic time so needs supplies) and one bar for me ... in case I accidentally ate one of the first two bars :) Pretty good plan, eh? Of course, it's early in the day yet and there are currently three bars of chocolate sitting on my dining table ...........
