iSight Vlogging

I’m testing video uploads on Vox – they work! This is a (meaningless) test Quicktime movie, shot with my new MacBook’s built-in iSight using the free Quicktime Broadcaster and saving to the Apple intermediate codec at 320×240. That codec seems to be the only one that can capture isight video in high quality at 30fps, even at 640×480.

I then opened the resulting MOV file in Quicktime Pro ($30 from Apple) and exported it as an MP4. Seems to have worked. Now that I can do it easily I can use the iSight to videoblog.

Sorry it’s such a stupid video. I was experimenting on the plane home and was too embarassed to actually say anything with people around. Next time I’ll take it into the plane’s bathroom. Or maybe not.
