How long do you want a navigation video to be? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Alright, I went ahead and made a navigation video. Currently I'm ultimate in navigation, 9th in the ocean. I make no claims I'm the best at nav; in fact in the video I booch a couple times (video software creates lag) but am able to recover. Video contains mostly excellents/incredibles but with a few goods.

The length of the full video is about 42 minutes. I'll run the poll for a few days before I encode it. Hopefully I'll be able to use the same host as for all my other videos :)

I'm unsure of how large the videos would be, but expect to use broadband to be able to download them.

PS: I actually have an accidental bingo in the video which I'll be sure to include if people want

Oh! No! why didn't you do this an age ago?
For me you are just too late. I had been bootching nav since last September on Azure. I just couldn't get my head around it and had only learned a handful of nav points. I knew what to do but there was some sort of mental block that made it like wading through porridge. Then suddenly a few weeks ago it all clicked into place and although I have a way to go to be anywhere near ultimate I have between my alts learned 90% of the ocean. I just need that other 10% and then to do it all again twice more and I'll be happy.
Well done for making the effort I'm sure others will benefit from this. It's rocks like you helping people for no gain that are starting to make me think there is hope for mankind yet.
I would suggest short and sweet is the way to go, but maybe you could do a longer version too.

I voted 15, although I'm not sure I'd watch the whole thing, at least not all at once (I have a short attention spa---- Oh look, a chicken!!). But I very much need all the help I can get when it comes to nav, so please, help a poor pirate out. :D

I went for 10, on the basis that its the most realistically downloadable on a 56k. If only I lived a mile further down the road, then I could get broadband :(

I picked ten because I figure that if I don't understand what you're doing in the ten best minutes of your tape, then I'm hopeless. <wink>

10 it is.

I was having some trouble with encoding it while still keeping the video smooth, so the size is a bit large (18 megs). Working on getting it hosted now.

If anybody is interested in the whole thing, PM me and I'll send it to you directly.
