My Inner Eight-Year-Old was insistent with his nagging today and we blew off configuring the new box in favor of a rare outdoor Happy Hour. Rare... for this time o' year... I should add. So I shot the video below... since v-logging is all the rage these days, or so I've read in other places. And who am I to disregard the trendy and the topical?
We had some issues with this vid. First of all, there was no sound when I viewed the vid locally. At first I thought that was coz I also had Pandora goin' on my phone and the phone mutes Pandora when you switch to the video camera. So I naturally thought ALL audio was muted... but NO! The Tube o' You picked up the audio just fine. And then there was the video orientation... I shot in portrait mode but the vid came out in landscape, which means I look like I'm layin' on my side. But the Tube o' You came to the rescue yet again, with their editing tools that let you flip the vid 90 degrees. This ain't technology... it's MAJIK.
So the net-net is I get a letter-box video. NEXT time we shall shoot phone vids in landscape and won't have these issues. I don't wanna hear stuff about fanboi phones and how they get this stuff right without intervention or external processing. Coz it's a case of "Fanboi phones? FANBOI PHONES? We don't NEED no steenkin' fanboi phones!"
