You need QuickTime to see this movie.
And I will add a movie of my Queensland, Fox, playing with a bottle. Fox's play is especially predatory. This will also be a QuickTime, but it's got the ".mov" suffix on it instead of the ".mpg" (which is what the Grover movie has) and I want to find out if one or the other works better for my viewers. (Update : actually both were saved in QuickTime, so for you Mac people both have file type MooV and creator code TVOD).
What the difference seems to be on my own Mac is that when I specify a double size image size , the "mpg" file shows up in double size but less sharp focus (because it's being shown double size) but the "mov" file shows up in it's original size. The difference in lighting, ie Grover being less well illuminated, is in the original movie. But it might also be a difference in the way I saved the movie , as I may have saved Grover in double size. I need to play around with this some more. (UPDATE : I did indeed save Grover's clip in double size, but saved Fox's clip in normal size.)
The camera is an old Sony Mavica 200 which can take video of up to 15 seconds.
If anyone wants to e-mail me about any difficulties with either of these movies, please include information as to what type of computer (Mac or PC or ??), what opperating system, and what browser and browser version. My e-mail address is below.
