The e-signature and the great strange beast

Well, here is, at last, the videoblog on the e-signature. It turns out I was hasty in going at YouTube, raving f----ing this and that, because the problem with this particular video was that, for some reason, while editing it to get it rightside up for YouTube (it may still not be right :( but WTF...) it turned into a great strange beast of 2.26 Gigabytes. Why, only God knows... I tossed it after re-saving and reduced it to 8.1 Mb. Anyway, YouTube does not take such humungous files, and even at the ultrafast 40 Mbps I have seen at my workplace, it still would have taken some time to upload (I suspect the up speed was some few Mbps, not 45 Mbps).

I now see the video has gone in all fucked up and sideways, the way I shot it holding my phone upright. Whatever. This is less bizarre than a lot of other stuff on the net. Just lie on your side...




Does anyone have any idea why flipping the image in Quicktime Pro would produce this bizarre shit with 2.2 GB?
Erik – sorry.

Poor Eglītis. This is just unrespectful! :)

Disrespectful is what I meant.

Have you tried iMovie? I'm not sure, but I think it should to flipping and stuff.

Mik,
I couldn't find a flipping function in iMovie. So I used Quicktime Pro. It made a monster file.
