Looks great! Thanks for the info!

Well, I downloaded it, and I can hear the sound perfectly, but the picture jumps frames. I tried both QT and Real and neither helped much. First time I've ever had a movie problem.

Fun, I just saw it a'swingin' on the webcam.

I have the same problem LdScotsman. I updated my QT to make sure that wasn't it but still got only audio. If you, or anybody else, can figure out the solution, post it. There may be some other folks that have this problem too.

Great video, is that the cycle of the ride meaning the length of it.

I read the review first and I was curious as what sounds it would makebecuase S&S makes rides that sound like no other, or at least from my experince. you can really hear the squeak sound which was great.

I love the massive size of the ride and the sounds compared to the size of the vehicles which look small compared to the supports. The ride seems to have this sense of power.

I suggest you save target as instead of not playing it in the window. The video worked fine for me.

Make no mistake... the HD stuff won't play on an older computer. It will be choppy.

But if you have a computer on which it will play, it looks farkin' amazing. Very crisp, wondefully clear image.

I think that's why it's called, "high definition" ;)

What happened to the idea of torrenting it?
Thursday, May 4, 2006 6:07 PM
Well, more than anything, people are torrent-ignorant, including myself. That, and seeding these things out of CP's connection would've been troublesome. Not very big pipe.

Jeff, I LOVED the CB mic you used ;)

It works on my 1.67Ghz G4 PB. :)

This HD video really sets Pointbuzz away from the rest of the CP sites and even coaster sites around. Jeff and Walt do a great job.

Oh, and Jeff, NICE SHIRT!

The benefits of having a slamming computer. Movie looks great.

^I noticed the shirt as well. Blue Man Group puts on an amazing show.

Wow, I didn't know it makes the sound like the Tower Rides. It's amazing how much speed it picks up in the 4 beginning swings. It's also amazing how fast it slow's down.

I can't even get Pointbuzz to load. It says that are some source code errors.
Friday, May 5, 2006 12:12 PM
Yeah, I had to install some code to prevent deep linking and force saving. We were getting leeched a bit.

I like the interview with Stan Checketts, but what is with that hat in the background?
