After having my patience tested for weeks dealing with a new 120G flash drive that is bad and needs to be exchanged to OCZ, I’m temporarily running Win7 from a normal hard drive. It worked well enough to get the first three Maniac Loveseat segments uploaded so I’m done reinstalling and tracking errors down until I get a replacement drive.

It will make video editing or conversion from the source h.264 files much slower, so anything new will be down converted first to something more web HD than the huge files, resolution, fps, and bitrate the Vixia blasts out. We will always have the master data, although there is some variation in bitrate and fps they are all above standard HD quality, with the highest quality files using 18Mbps 1920×1080 (16:9) at 29.97 fps AVC ([email protected]) (CABAC / 2 ref frames).

Traffic has also died down from the high of the video release so I’ll be performing another backup and do both the hosting OS container rebuild and refresh on the website software. The long selection process for the perfect membership software which led to the purchase of DAP (Digital Access Pass) was well worth it, the next version has some great enhancements and even tighter WordPress integration. I also bought their Wicked Cool Plugins suite, which now includes a version of osTicket integrated into DAP/WP.

More videos on the way, and I swear some actual behind the scenes videos. Although calling what we have from the mini cam or phone “video” is being generous, every time I have attempted (as an afterthought to be sure) to record using either it has been crap audio over even worse quality video when it works at all.
