Susan has started to upload the video she gathered this summer, and video for Belden and Blaisdell should be available shortly for 2013. I'll be adding the other locations and species as they get there.

The Blaisdell video is rotated 90 degrees. That will make it terribly difficult to decipher. Is there any possibility of getting it displayed upright?

That's very strange. It's rotated 90 degrees in chrome, but not safari. The converted videos must be off...

It's off by 90 degrees in Firefox too.

BTW, did you know that you are putting this new Blaisdell video into the 2012 directory?

Edit: also, the files are named ...mp4.mp4 and ...mp4.ogv

I just tried Safari, and it shows up rotated 90 degrees for me. Same with Opera. I can't even get any of the site to work with Internet Explorer.

Okay it looks like that particular parent video was mildly corrupted (at least in it's format), that's why it's rotated. Will have to manually fix the videos.

The site requires IE 9 (or maybe 10?) for all the HTML5.

Well, I'm trying IE 10, and I can't navigate the site at all. I'll try to see if it's something at my end.

Just tested it on IE 10 in a virtual machine and everything looked fine...

I don't normally use IE anyway, so it isn't a problem that it isn't working for me.

The Blaisdell video is still rotated 90 degrees and is still very hard to watch.

The Belden video is also not optimal - the camera seems to have fallen over and now I am watching video of the clouds.

Well that's off to a good start. :P There's a whole lot more video to be converted so hopefully there will be better videos soon...

I'm trying to figure out how to fix the Blaisdell issue, might be awhile before that's all fixed.

I just had the first rotated Blaisdell video. If this is the same nest as where the bird attacked the camera (looks like because of the black border from the camera coverage) then the sites (in this case top and bottom) are cut off. (Edit: I should have copied the filename for example, silly me ;-))
And btw. because I believe it was never mentioned: are the UND sig and the time stamp put into the video after or while converting? Because when it would be directly coming from camera it should have been rotated also...

The camera attacked by the bird was the new Belden nest. It looks like the 2013 videos have redesigned camera housings.

I almost certain the UND logo gets added after the fact. The timestamp could be recorded with the video, but it would be recorded to a different layer. It's all magic.

The UND logo is added in the conversion process for the video streaming (Susan doesn't want other biologists taking her video without credit!) but the timestamp is already there.

I think the camera might actually have been on it's side!
