I got Pinnacle Ultimate Studio now. It's all gravy.
Another question though, what type of file do you save your videos as (Specifically)? I noticed there are dozens of options in Pinnacle.
As you already know I have the Contour HD-720
I use the Easy Edit software that comes with the Contour to upload the files from the cam to my computer. It is also available as a dowmload from their site. Once saved to the default directory I then use Cyberlink Power Director to create and edit my videos. I prefer to produce them in AVC/MPEG-4 because the compression rate is better than MPEG-2....It creates a smaller file which allows me to post longer videos while maintaining decent video quality without exceeding the maximum upload size on sites like You Tube and Vimeo.

There are many different qualities of glass manufactured but in the end if you have glass insurance coverage and they are paying for your replacement they get charged the same whether it be the highest or lowest quality installed as the prices are based on the part number and not the quality of the product.

27 August 2010 - 08:04 AMi used to play over the phone. lol. both i and my opponent had the tourney clock, (30 minute game), gridded chessboard, and phone. if you both set up your pieces correctly, you can hear your opponents coordinates, do his move, and he does the same on his board. and vica versa. that way you have a 3-d game with a real board and pieces. besides, no one can cheat. lol.
i'll let you guys figure out the system for it, but i'm down for some online chess.
Cool...Let's keep em coming...
Yahoo / Would be easy as there is no software to download but you may have to register.
FICS / Would have software to download but has a better interface and you can log on as a guest.

We could do it via a live online server like FICS or Yahoo. Somebody would have to act as a Tournament Director to set the pairings and then we would have some time to meet up on the server and play our games then repeat this process for each round. A week per round is usual for this type of tourney. Another option would be for all of us to meet on the same server at the same time and play a private tourney. This would be the easiest and quickest. And yet another option would be to use one of the free correspondence servers like Gameknot or Chess.com to play a slow e-mail type tournament. I think this would probably be easiest to organize but it's a different type of game than live chess and takes awhile to play, depending on the time control it can easily take from three months to over a year to complete a tournament.
Edit: Oh yeah...there is the old snail mail type tournaments. The typical cycle lasts two years with a 10 move per 30 day time control..Of course not counting transmission time.
