blog bomb – youtube in HD

OK, apparently YouTube read my latest blog post.  Thanks guys!

But, my brother Jon gets the credit for this one.  Here’s a cut and paste from the Salvia family email chain that rattled cages earlier today.  Jon writes:

FYI, I received a comment on the RNR YouTube page for one of the Donavon Frankenreiter videos. The commenter wrote that the video looked great in HD 720p. I tried watching the same video in High Quality and, well, it didn’t look like HD. After doing some Googling I came across this article from November 20th…http://www.downloadsquad.com/2008/11/20/youtube-experimenting-with-720p-hd-video/

Here’s the Donavon video that received the comment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VM176Qgzcv0

So test this out. First start watching the vid in Normal Quality. Next start watching the vid in High Quality. To watch the video in HD, the commenter provided this code <&fmt=22> to add to the end of the URL.

YouTube is very quietly testing 720p HD. This is huge.

Dammit Jon, why did you get to be the first one to hear about this!  I’m the older brother, WTF?!  Oh, and Jon also wants me to be sure to let you know that stereo audio is enabled, too.

Anywho, we’re all winners.  Just upload your 1280×720 3-5mbps h.264 128kbps AAC audio quicktime to Vimeo, YouTube, and Motionbox for the most efficient distribution of your HD content.  Then once YouTube processes your video, just add &fmt=22 to the end of the url and enjoy!

Wait, what’s Motionbox, you ask?  Could be the next blog bomb here at proactively.  For now, put on your steel tipped shoes then check out the link here cause you’ll be tippy-toeing the cutting edge yet again.

In the meantime, here’s a few Salvia Bros. productions in glorious YouTube HD for your viewing pleasure:

***UPDATE***

For those of you who’ve made it this far, here’s a bonus round: embed youtube HD movies.  Jon’s got the scoop again:

Add &ap=%2526fmt%3D22 to the “value” of the object’s movie parameter and the embed “src” paramater. Looks HD to me but loads very, very slowly. Also, the YouTube embed is still the same 4:3 ratio size. Letterbox bars are included. However, once in full screen it becomes apparent, I think. Try it out for
yourselves.

And not to put his journalistic integrity integrity into question, Jon cited his source to boot.

So lets see some HD YouTube embeds of 5dmarkii footage, Canon HV20 & HV30 footage, Nikon D90 footage, RED One footage!  If you got something hot, post it in the comments!

whartscape – thedeathset & the mae-shi

Popped the cherry last week and got Carey’s first on camera interview for 103 WRNR at Whartscape in Baltimore, MD. Hot, sweaty, smelly and loud, this was Whartscape’s third year in existence and was produced by Dan Deacon and the Wham City Art Collective during Baltimore’s annual Artscape festival.

It was quick and in the moment. Thanks to Johnny Sierra of TheDeathSet for talking to us during a hasty break down following their set. We may post some footage from their set but we just got camera audio. Maybe the footage will make it’s way into a short Whartscape doc… we’ll see. A good start and a promise of lots more to come from the Salvia Brothers.

Here’s footage of The Mae-Shi’s visceral Whartscape performance.

Trying to figure out a good portable field recorder to use for recording live concerts when we can’t plug our Marantz into the house board. Basically just turning the camera audio level all the way down (when I remember to). Please post if you’ve got a suggestion.
