Ok. Use the address bar and type http://www.google.com. Still following? OK, good. Then type steel phantom in the little box. And just like magic, all the steel phantom media you could ever hope to find. Amazing, no?
Well according to Google, there were 2,510,000 results for "Steel Phantom." You went through all those and still had time to post a thread saying "B&M track arrives at Kennywood?" I envy the amount of time you seem to have on your hands.
You know I was just asking if any of you had something special to share. Ive seen the usual pictures and an on ride POV....but I was hoping someone might have something cool and unique, a Steel Phantom ad, or a video ad, or even a picture that you think is unique or cool...anything. Thanks, for those of you who understand what I mean.
This is far from new (in fact some of it was shot circa. 1997!). And it's been on my web site before. But since you asked, and since I haven't changed the movie on my site since Christmas of 2004, I offer my 2001 Kennywood clip, which includes rare views of Noah's Ark, Steel Phantom, Thunderbolt and Jack Rabbit.
RideMan, I can hear the music and sound in your video but no picture, its just a white screen. Do I need a newer version of quicktime or is there a glitch in the file? Any way you could format it mpeg or wmv? Thanks.
Jeff, that file is encoded with an MPEG-4 codec, specifically 3IVX D4 4.5.1, which is (a) not the latest version of the codec, and (b) in my experience is compatible with the MPEG-4 codec that Apple introduced with QuickTime 6. Let me check something else...
...I used MPEC-4 audio as well (AAC) and if you're hearing that, something is definitely wrong, as Apple didn't introduce that codec until QT-6 either.
No chance of encoding to WMV, and if I go to a raw MPEG file it would make the file HUGE to get quality even close. I'd prefer to tweak something in the file to make it work for you. Hmmm...I could use Apple's MPEG-4 codec, which might fix it...
Can you download and play back in the QT Player? There might be something goofy about the plug-in settings, and if so, it would work in the player. What browser are you using? I don't remember if that page calls the ActiveX control, and I can't test in IE until I go to work on Monday. What version of QT are you using?
yeah, I only get sound. I have all the plugins, I tried IE also, and only sound? I haven't tried downloading it though yet. It sounds great though ;) *** Edited 1/15/2006 3:27:04 PM UTC by RollerCoasterGod***
I just switched it out again, and now Fast Start is broken again, but it's an older encoding and it might actually work. Unfortunately, they *all* work for me, so I can't test. Please let me know if it works now. I'll keep fighting with it until it works. I never had this kind of trouble with the Dragster movie...!
LOL, I got to ride the old Phantom....or at least I think I did...had memory loss ever since... ;)
Hard to imagine ANY coaster having those kind of *radical* changes made...and them being for the better?? And I mean WAYYYYY better. What they have now is a certain top-5 coaster, what they had was a *beating* waiting for you.
Still, Steel Phantom was completely unique...then again, so is PR...Kennywood plain ROCKS! :)
