Use the trial version to see whether you like it. The UI is a bit finagle, but I got used to it.

Here's my first try at a video.

Wolfgang I used Microsoft Expression Recorder 4 There is a service pack 1 download here MSEE4SP1 or you can find it by opening +Details on your link. I went with the SP1 version.

The install went well and for this video I didn't make any changes to the screen capture or encoding process. I did try to rename the .xesc to .wmv but MSEE4 wouldn't recognize the change so I renamed it back and started encoding.

For 5minutes of capture and 675MB in size the encoding took 12minutes on my Intel i3 530 2.93GHz machine with 6GB of 1,333MHz DDR3 SDRAM. I noticed when it was finished there was an extra folder in the Expressions Program Folder called Output with my user name so I clicked on that and saw the output of the encoding in guess what? A .wmv file extension.

I moved on to YouTube (YT) and finished setting that up, well, at least enough to allow me to upload and YT took about 3 maybe 5minutes to convert, and here's how it looks.

This is around 2:15pm edt (18:15UTC)


You'll notice some spots that stop and then start again but that's on my machine during the live feed, if I change the auto play setting to 720p it still does it but not as bad. The play will also go out and in of focus but I believe that may be an auto focus feature on the live cam from HDOnTap. Sometimes it stops entirely and the play button will run as if its trying to rebuild the buffer then it start up again, I don't know if that can be some setting adjustment on my machine or if its in my link to my ISP.

I have to get used to MSEE4, and I want a private YT channel that I think i have set correctly, it'll take time till I get comfortable with both of them, but I know enough now to be dangerous, Thanks for the leads Wolfgang!

Anak, there is a permission problem on Youtube with the video. I get this message when I want to play. You probably forgot to publish it after upload. The button is on the right top of the upload page. But now that it is uploaded you have to check it and look under "Actions".

Thanks guys, I told you I'd be dangerous!
I'm going to have to get used to MSEE4 and YT and reset my morning routine to try and catch the Eagle action, I'll give it another go later tonight near Sundown.


I forgot to tell everyone that on the way home from the vets Tuesday when I took Candy Pester our 12year old feline for her yearly rabies shot that I saw one of our local eagles. I was in a downhill turn to the left on one of our country roads when about halfway through it a large bird flew up off a post in the farmers field to the right and flew across the road right in front of my truck. It was the largest bird I've ever seen in these parts and at first I wasn't sure if it was an eagle or not because it was all brown, but I know from local reports that there are eagles in our area and this one was probably a yearling or two years old. American eagles don't grow their white plumage until their fourth or fifth year.

How Do I know A Bald Eagle When I See One?

In addition to their large size, adult bald eagles are identified by their snowy white head and tail feathers. However, a young bald eagle does not get these white feathers until it reaches sexual maturity in its fourth or fifth year of life. Immature bald eagles are a mottled light and dark brown all over, and in flight they often are mistaken for golden eagles or turkey vultures.

The link to what I saw is: Lilibirds Since Goldens and Vultures aren't native to this area I'm stickin' to I saw an eagle.

I would've posted the pix of the immature eagle, but it is a copyrighted/watermarked pix so I posted the link.

My son and I saw one fly over our boat on Bartlett Lake around 30 years ago. They had been reintroduced to the area only around two years before and there was a nesting pair about two or three miles upstream on the Verde River.

Links to images is good,
But copy rights usually only applies to using images for profit as a business logo or for resell
Unless you sell or promote an image with copy rights it's harmless to post them here we do it in custom walls and signatures all the time and also company logos
We do not sell anything so it's not copy infringement

Youtube is very similar as far as sells and profit

Nest Remodeling; Chicks have found a part of the nest that interests them and may be where they will take first flight. The parents are strengthening that area.




Wolfgang, when I get a chance I'm going to start posting at your MSEE4 Tutorial, there are a lot of questions I have about MSEE4 and YouTube.
