Rubbish video

Here's my first attempt at recreating the route of a procession in Manchester. It's really bad, and I sound like Frank Sidebottom, but I'm just experimenting with the technology and with what works.

  1. Really interesting. I had a bit of a problem at first as the video was not compatible with my Mac. A bit of free downloaded software dealt with that. Are you going to carry on?

  2. apologies - I realised that it was incompatible with macs when I tried it on a friend's mac. At the moment I can only save the videos in windows mpv format. Will try to convert it into something compatible.
    It was only a trial for working out the technology - the historical content and the route will be much better once I've got the hang of things.

  3. This is the link I used if anyone else has a Mac.
