I turn you guys onto some cool video's if you can help me find a camera mount for my bike?

I'd like to find one that mounts to the gas cap base.


Thanks in advance...

That's it!


Thanks Eric...my in-laws gave us a video cam for x-mas, and I aim to put it to good use.

Any idea's on how to mix music in the video?

Get a video editing program like Pinnacle Studio, capture the video from the cam, then selecct the desired music clip and after that select the scenes you want to have (scenes can be edited, too, of course). It's very easy to do and the results are convincing.

I use a helmet cam with the video recorder in my tank bag with an on/off switch on the left hand side of the bars.

I prefer a helmet cam because the ones fixed to the bike aren't representative of the plane of your eyes and so distort what you see when on the bike.

Correct, but there is - in my opinion - a big disadvantage of helmet cams: Because of the movement of your head (you don't look straight forward all the time) the pictures may become quite restless.

Looking forward to it, prolly got more curves around your house
than all of texas :(

Windoze movie maker is what i used to put the music to this
http://www.youtube.com/?v=2eqjYYUQOBY.

I've got videos on putfile.com http://www.putfile.com/eric2
and youtube.com http://www.youtube.com/videos/better4it

Both are free, youtube allows up to 100mb and seems to load
faster because they use macromedia flash. Putfile only allows
25mb and sometimes doesn't work or randomly deletes my vids.

HTH!

It seems to take a while to load during the day from youtube,
it probably says its transferring data at the bottom. Its likely worse if your're
at work. Our network has virus protection where it downloads
and scans all the data before forwarding to requester and its a 46mb file.

Putfile does a little better
here IMO as you can see the
percentage downloaded.

How is this one?
