A Grand Experiment

Okay, I got an early Christmas present. It came very early so I could use it at the Christmas Recital, which turned out to be a really good thing. The place were we hold the recitals usually records them so I can give the parents a CD of their child playing. Well, this year, when I got to the hall, they told me that their recording equipment wasn't working and they wouldn't be able to do the recording. Voi la! We pulled out the Christmas present, and were partially saved.

You see, the new present is a lovely, high-def, fully-1080p camcorder. Yes yes yes yes yes yes!

So this experiment is to see if I can put the movies on here and have them work. I won't post the one of the recital. It's just too big. I don't even know if it will fit on a DVD so I can give it to the parents yet. But here's one of Mr. Perfect discussing our cabling problems. You see, the camcorder takes various cables, one of which is HDMI so you can hook it up to things like high-def T.V.s or an HDMI-capable laptop. It took us three cables before we got it right and could watch the videos on the T.V. Hurrah for our side!

Anywho, here's the vid from YouTube:

Now here it is imported straight into the post:

Hmmm...the color is not as good, but I can control the display size. I think I like that trade off.

Now I just have to figure out how to make DVDs for each of the piano families...
