More Wakefield Videos

Big Brother's Watching [Updated]

We've aquired yet more videos from the Wakefield show, just in case your modem wasn't burnt out from the last large downloads.

The first is Vincent Sanders' talk on behalf of Simtec about USB in general, and Simtec's USB solutions for RISC OS. Also available as audio only in MP3 format. The second is the start of the show and is mostly a view from the MicroDigital stand (even includes motorbikes).

Stuart Tyrrell has thrown us a link to his DivX of the STD stand at the Wakefield 2003 show.

Whilst I really appreciate Ian letting us use his bandwidth, is there any chance of somewhere mirroring these as he's probably being swamped. I'm only getting around 1k/sec... -- Gavin Smith

...Ian's paying for it, so Ian gets to choose. He tells me he's pushing 1GB/hour. We've already offered CDs as an option.

I wasn't complaining, please don't keep jumping down my throat. How much are the CDs then, I can't find any info other than I suggestion that you might offer them. -- Gavin Smith

I'm not! The only person who is jumping is David Atkins (see the end of the MD presentation :-), I'm just pointing things out.

I think I can make up 2 CDs for 6UKP including postage and packaging. Email me if you're interested.

2 CDs for 6?! My school sells CDs for 1 each, so they could manage 2. Isnt that a bit much? Even is you are charging for labour too! -- Smiler - :D Alex Melhuish

Yes!? Try thinking before you make an outburst like this.

2 CDs + 2 cases (or sleves, but I don't have many) + 1.20 bubble envelope + 57p stamps + my time (charged at a very cheap rate). If someone wants to sell cheaper, that's fine, but this is the offer I'm making.

We hear lots of rumours of 8 Mbit cheapish connections over here. Will you be able to supply the necessary bandwith? ;-)

Has anyone considered DivXing them? That'd probably make them a bit more managable.

I know that the RiscPC will not play DivXs at full speed and I have my doubts that the Iyonix can atm either. Also, the required software is still in the beta testing stage. -- Spriteman.

True, but not all of us want to play them on our RiscPCs. Those who (like me) are going to watch them on a linux box, or a windows box, could then get the smaller files - making life a bit easier for whoever is hosting them.

When I've got them I may divX them and stick them on Gnutella, if no one minds.....

(I've tried to get them from Gnutella but not been able to find them)

The Cineroma author seems pretty confident that the Iyonix will play DivXs happily at full speed. -- Gavin Smith

DivXs with sound and everything would be pretty sweet.

Hm I'm busy transcoding to Windows Media (ick) wmv file format at the moment - managing to get 5 minutes of video/audio into 2.5M of data. Should have smaller downloads up soon I hope.

An excellent thought, and I'd really like to see these vids, but at the best download speed I can get with ADSL, I calculate just the MD video alone will take over eight days (24 hours a day) to download! Thanks for your efforts, but I don't think I'm going to be able to get them. Pity. -- Jeremy Brayshaw

If you downloaded at 5k/s it would take <24hours. Anyway, tiny divx files are available now.

I got the divx encodes but the video is playing at half the speed of the audio. Only half the video is accessible and nothing is synced. Anyone got it to work?

You're not using the VideoLan client linked to from the media page.

Standard divx codecs appear to think the video is 12fps, is that correct?

Videolan does the same thing, video half the real speed.
