    I posted a vid of some runs recently on another Thredbo thread which required some re-processing to make work properly over the intamanent.

    So I decided to redo the whole set of three from that weekend since I got a new fangled computer with new video software and Im keen to now what they stream like.

    I have had some trouble with MPEG codecs on my old PC and this time i did them as WMV.

    First is some tele skiing with M10 and Telecrag
    Its basically Basin, Waimea, The Bluff and Cannonball

    Floaty

    The following two are me and M10 doing a run from
    The Bowl and Boundry Rider Trees to the Cruiser Chair then Waimea to the High Traverse

    Exhausted

    Then on to Gunbarrel Glades, Pegasus, Gunbarrel, Lower Schuss to Hign Noon

    Worked for me, only checked out the first one though. Cool vid [​IMG]

    I think you may be need Windows Media Player 11 to play them, or maybe a specific codec?

    the little kid rips it up to the max in the second vid. It would be so much fun to have one of these little guys as a guide.

    just watched the third vid for the second time. IT encapsulates very well what Thredbo is really about. And the run lengths! That video starts from top of gunbarrell chairlifts if I am not mistaken which is only 2/3rds of the way up the mountain. Will I pay 1150 to do that possibly only 12 times or so a year?

    Absolutely!

    Thanks for the comments guys

    TC you need a PC I think - MACs dont like WMV
    I wil post up some MPEGs today to see if it fixes them for the MAC heads

    Hey Dibble did you watch on your MAC or the PC?

    Pigface - the last 2 were done in one go - only stopped for M10 to catch up - hence edits
    If you watch the last 2 in a row you get the Bowl then from the top of Waimea to bottom of Schuss
    I only broke the run into 2 to make them a songs length each

    I want to get this new PC sused out so they will stream from my site
    Once i do i will have lots of editing to do
    I have about 12 tapes over the last few years

    Since Im gunna do them in reverse order next ones will be

    Ramshead to Dead Horse Gap with Dibble on Tele for the first time
    Dead Horse Gap to Thredbo Village on bikes in full ski gear
    Thredbo Telemark Classic
    Canada 2008 ( pre helmet cam)
