Online video tech note

Two posts below this one is the video I uploaded to YouTube showing yesterday's demonstration in San Francisco. Just now I uploaded the same thing to indybay.org here. If you watch them both, the YouTube version is both jerkier and more pixellated. Partly this is because YouTube forces a large size even though this particular video was shot at 320x240, and partly because it operates as a streaming video, whereas the IndyMedia version is a straight download. The latter, being a .mov file, requires QuickTime for viewing, which the YouTube version does not.

Just some observations, clearly there are pros and cons to each approach.
