The Verbier 2004 skiing video has now had its world premiere at Avaragado Towers, so now it’s available to all. See the current Avaragado Pictures movie selection.

The download speed is the same as a 56k modem! I am hoping that one day it may finish downloading.
I also note that you are being a Microsoft shill. You can be “open” by using mpeg4. (No, not Microsoft’s bastardisation of mpeg4, or Apple’s).
I’ve got a 256K upload rate so it should be faster than that. Maybe there was a Demon glitch.
Can you point me to a decent converter so I can produce mpeg4? Premiere 6.5 doesn’t speak it. Stuff I’ve found on the net is rubbish.
FFmpeg seems to do a good job. If you want to start a new rant, try mplayer on Linux. It is amusingly user hostile, yet actually does the trick.
I’ve spent a couple of hours battling with ffmpeg. It seems very keen to screw up the audio – to the extent that if I convert A to B and then use B as the source for another conversion, it doesn’t recognise the audio codec info it wrote in B itself not two minutes before in this very boutique.
I have yet to successfully create an mp4 file with working audio and video. I can, however, crash various PC media players on demand.
Is this a good time to mention my 6Mbps/600kbps DSL?
You failed to hit the 6mbps barrier though. And your bill will be double mine in a years time.
The DSL sync rate is 6000kbps. I loose at least 13% of that with TCP/IP and ATM overhead which works out as 5200kbps; I generally get between 4800 and 5100 in the real world. The upload syncs at 608kbps and I see TCP throughput maxing out around 520.
And Tarantella was paying $65 per month for the line before I got this new package, so the price doesn’t really matter.
You miss the point. You DSLreports link says it is a barrier. You can’t cross barriers. You are stuck there.
What the hell are you smoking?
Its all I had. They used the word ‘barrier’ so much on the speed test, I figured it was the only thing I could use against you to contain my jealousy.
My speed test, if you’re interested.
